"State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies; and this lie slips from its mouth: "I, the state, am the people." ...
"But the state lies in all the tongues of good and evil; and whatever it says it lies; and whatever it has it has stolen.
"Everything in it is false; it bites with stolen teeth, and bites often. It is false down to its bowels.
"Confusion of tongues of good and evil; this sign I give you as the sign of the state. This sign points to the will to death! it points to the preachers of death!"
[F]orce can only settle questions of power, not of right. - Clyde N. Wilson
