Anything else you’re interested in is not going to happen if you can’t breathe the air and drink the water. Don’t sit this one out. Do something. You are by accident of fate alive at an absolutely critical moment in the history of our planet. (Carl Sagan)
The government has too much authority, and it’s dangerous. It stifles productivity and freedom and prosperity and peace. / Der Staat verfügt über zuviel Macht und das ist gefährlich. Es erstickt Produktivität und Freiheit, Wohlstand und Frieden. (Vince Vaughn)
The only things that should have to die, are nationalism, capitalism and imperialism. (Mark Twain)
“If you personally advocate that I be caged if I don't pay for whatever "government" things YOU want, please don't pretend to be tolerant, or non-violent, or enlightened, or compassionate. Don't pretend you believe in "live and let live," and don't pretend you want peace, freedom or harmony. It's a simple truism that the only people in the world who are willing to "live and let live" are voluntaryists. So you can either PRETEND to care about and respect your fellow man while continuing to advocate widespread authoritarian violence, or you can embrace the concepts of self-ownership and peaceful coexistence, and become an anarchist.
