as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should
be managed by individuals or voluntary associations,
and that the State should be abolished.

- Benjamin Tucker

For, just as it has been said that there is no half-way

of distinction between love and hate,
and therefore is not love at all.

that this right would not be exercised in matters pertaining
to the individual in the more intimate and private
relations of his life is not borne out by the history of governments.

as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should
be managed by the government,
regardless of individual choice.

and the discovery of the means of making it what it should be.
- Benjamin Tucker

effort should be to impose all the cost of repairing
the wrong upon the doer of the wrong.
This alone is real justice, and of course such justice is necessarily free.
