How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people. (Walter E. Williams)

Quote Area 2
Der Staatsapparat ist ein Zwangs- und Unterdrückungsapparat. Das Wesen der Staatstätigkeit ist, Menschen durch Gewaltanwendung oder Gewaltandrohung zu zwingen, sich anders zu verhalten, als sie sich aus freiem Antriebe verhalten würden. (Ludwig von Mises)
Quote Area 3
„Every nation-state tends towards the imperial – that is the point. Through banks, armies, secret police, propaganda, courts and jails, treaties, taxes, laws and orders, myths of civil obedience, assumptions of civic virtue at the top…We put more trust in those who show a measure of compassion, who denounce the hideous social arrangements that make war inevitable.. which fosters corporate selfishness, panders to appetites and disorder, waste the earth. (Daniel Berrigan)“
Quote Area 4
"To abstain from condemning a torturer, is to become an accessory to the torture and murder of his victims. / "Sich der Verurteilung eines Folterers zu enthalten, bedeutet, zur Folter und der Ermordung seiner Opfer beizutragen. (Ayn Rand) "
Quote Area 5
#Freedom vs #ZombieStatists
"Our fellow men are black magicians. And whoever is with them is a black magician on the spot. Think for a moment, can you deviate from the path that your fellow men have lined up for you? And if you remain with them, your thoughts and your actions are fixed forever in their terms. That is slavery. The warrior, on the other hand, is free from all that. Freedom is expensive, but the price is not impossible to pay. So, fear your captors, your masters. Don´t waste your time and your power fearing freedom. (Carlos Castaneda)"
