Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You...

Here is the actual Friedman comment (from Capitalism and Freedom) on JFK's famous inaugural statement:

"President Kennedy said, 'Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.'.... Neither half of that statement expresses a relation between the citizen and his government that is worthy of the ideals of free men in a free society."

Me and Bobbie McGee says "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose". Maybe to a Marxist. I say it means everything worth having. Not as poetic but closer again to the truth.
