Who was Albert J Nock? and what did he say about the "remnant " (for all you Ron Paul Revolutionaries)


http://youtu.be/i2XKaQayDdg

Albert Jay Nock (October 13, 1870 – August 19, 1945) was an influential American libertarian author, educational theorist, and social critic of the early and middle 20th century.

Describing himself as a philosophical anarchist, Nock called for a radical vision of society free from the influence of the political state. He described the state as that which "claims and exercises the monopoly of crime". He opposed centralization, regulation, the income tax, and mandatory education, along with what he saw as the degradation of society. He denounced in equal terms all forms of totalitarianism, including "Bolshevism... Fascism, Hitlerism, Marxism, [and] Communism" but also harshly criticized democracy. Instead, Nock argued, "The practical reason for freedom is that freedom seems to be the only condition under which any kind of substantial moral fiber can be developed. Everything else has been tried, world without end. Going dead against reason and experience, we have tried law, compulsion and authoritarianism of various kinds, and the result is nothing to be proud of.

The state

is the number one enemy of freedom and liberty. Always has been and always will be. And the stupid belief in the myth of authority is what created it.
As long as people think other people can(should) tell them what to do, control them and live off them nothing will change. Freedom is incompatible with being ruled. . . . by anybody.

And we are meant to be

Free

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.

Always bump Nock. Double for the Remnant RP is calling.

-

Free includes debt-free!

Like a romance novel

"You do not know, and will never know, who the Remnant are, nor what they are doing or will do. Two things you do know, and no more: First, that they exist; second, that they will find you."

For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.
