quote of the day

The most absurd apology for authority and law is that they serve to diminish crime.  Aside from the fact that the State is itself the greatest criminal, breaking every written and natural law, stealing in the form of taxes, killing in the form of war and capital punishment, it has come to an absolute standstill in coping with crime.

--Emma Goldman

Even before I saw the first comment, mine was going to be 'A woman ahead of her time'. I'll leave it at that.
A fascinating lady.
