Knowledge is only useful if you do something with it.

How to tame and subdue the polar bear, how to take over the talent, the science, the technology, how to buy out the human capital, how to acquire the intellectual property rights?

I've never had a stupid student in my life.

I never look down on my students. I never thought, "Look at these people."

But part of my job as a teacher is to work with that - against that.

Your physical, mental and intellectual resources - continually growing and changing - are your personal capital.

I started by saying that one of the most fateful errors of our age is the belief that the problem of production has been solved.

To use the language of the economist, it lives on irreplaceable capital which it cheerfully treats as income.

But capitalism can't be transcended from with capitalism itself, but through socialism, true socialism, with equality and justice. I'm also convinced that it is possible to do it under democracy, but not in the type of democracy being imposed by Washington.

I think it's time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers... Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them for ourselves.

Collectivism, as an intellectual power and a moral ideal, is dead.
