“The truth is that any form of authoritarian control—any type of “government,” whether constitutional, democratic, socialist, fascist, or anything else—will result in a set of masters forcibly oppressing a group of slaves. That is what “authority” is—all it ever has been, and all it ever could be, no matter how many layers of euphemisms and pleasant rhetoric are used in an attempt to hide it.” – Larken Rose

“Anarchism, stands for direct action, the open defiance of, and resistance to, all laws and restrictions, economic, social, and moral. But defiance and resistance are illegal. Therein lies the salvation of man. Everything illegal necessitates integrity, self-reliance, and courage… Direct action against the authority in the shop, direct action against the authority of the law, direct action against the invasive, meddlesome authority of our moral code, is the logical, consistent method of Anarchism.” Emma Goldman

“To live, free and single like a tree
but in brotherhood like a forest
this longing is ours.”

Thomas Jefferson wrote,

“The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become
corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may become persecutor,
and better men be his victims. It can never be too often
repeated that the time for fixing every essential right, on a legal
basis, is while our rulers are honest, ourselves united. From the
conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then
be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support.
They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded.
They will forget themselves in the sole faculty of making money,
and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their
rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at
the conclusion of this war, will be heavier and heavier, till our
rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.”
