Anarchism Understood

are 2 people healthier than one person? are 2 wiser?
then why believe they have more rights? why believe the rights of one
are less important? history's sadness is that sanity, wisdom , justice-
the very qualities that make us human- are not additive, while one's
brute animal ability to do another injury is. 2 people are,
tragically, stonger than one. stripped to naked truth, that is the
basis for all government, dictatorial or democratic. can we not do better?
-Sequoyah Guess

Institutions always lie, and the bigger the institution, the bigger the lie.
-Guiding Principles, The Cult of Anarchy

a statist system — whether of a communist, fascist, Nazi, socialist or ‘welfare’ type — is based on the … government’s unlimited power, which means: on the rule of brute force. … Under statism, the government is not a policeman, but a legalized criminal that holds the power to use physical force in any manner and for any purpose it pleases against legally disarmed, defenseless victims.
-Ayn Rand

The evils of the protecting-duty, may undoubtedly be graduated by compromises, like those of every other species of tyranny, but the folly of letting in some tyranny has in all ages been fatal to liberty. A succession of wedges, though apparently small, finally splits the strongest timber. ~John Taylor of Caroline, Tyranny Unmasked
