If you want democracy you haven't been paying attention

And Russia is about as opposite to anarchy as a developed economy can get without collapsing. (though we may find out in the US soon) Russia is an oligarchy, practically an autarchy.

The threat of powerful men is the state. In a free society there are no "powerful men" in that sense because there is no power to seize.

I don't dream of the glory days of the old republic. I dream of freedom.

The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on Earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but only to have the law of nature for his rule. - Sam Adams

Where liberty dwells, there is my country - Benjamin Franklin
