"Society cannot exist if the majority is not ready to hinder, by the application or threat of violent action, minorities from destroying the social order. This power is vested in the state or government." - Human Action, Ludwig von Mises
I guess to you that's anarchism?;) Hell Rothbard wasn't even all the way there, though it would be a stretch to call him a statist. But Mises was certainly a statist. There are lot more Mises quotes on the topic.
But I should think you would like Mises, with all that "application or threat of violent action"? Gets your juices flowing right? The thought of men in uniforms beating up minorities to prevent them "from destroying the social order". Ahh.. statist happy ending squeee!
Maybe if you actually read you might not make a jackssa out of yourself with such regularity.
I don't really want you to do that though. I couldn't buy a better opportunity to make statists look bad.
