I’m Ricaurte Batista III and I am very interested in politics, history, philosophy and arts. I enjoy photography, research, reading and writing.
I am a classical liberal member of the Circle Bastiat, supporter of the Tory Party and a member of the Panamenista Party.
I believe every person should be able to do whatever they want without harming the life, liberties and properties of the others, in case it happens then government should only act under the rule of law.
I believe in economic freedom and personal liberty because they are key features to achieve prosperity.
I admire John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, John Locke, Frédéric Bastiat, and Justo Arosemena.
Some of my favourite quotes are:
An error doesn’t become a mistake until you refuse to correct it. -JFK
The end of law is not to abolish, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. -John Lock
There is no such thing as public money; there is only taxpayers’ money. -Margaret Thatcher
A man’s right to work as he will, to spend what he earns, to own property, to have the State as servant and not as master…They are the essence of a free economy. And on that freedom all our other freedoms depend. -Margaret Thatcher
A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both. -Milton Friedman
