Concordia res parvae crescunt. It’s a Latin phrase made popular during the Revolutionary Period that means “small things grow great by concord.” And in a time when politicians claim the power to control nearly every aspect of your life, it’s a phrase that not only packs wisdom, but gives insight on a possible road map to liberty.

Most prolific members of the Austrian School of economics that you espouse, particularly Von Mises, Rothbard et. al. were Jews.
