Quotes of the Week

From the Light:

“If justice be a natural principle, then it is necessarily an immutable one; and can no more be changed — by any power inferior to that which established it — than can the law of gravitation, the laws of light, the principles of mathematics, or any other natural law or principle whatever; and all attempts or assumptions, on the part of any man or body of men — whether calling themselves governments, or by any other name — to set up their own commands, wills, pleasure, or discretion, in the place of justice, as a rule of conduct for any human being, are as much an absurdity, an usurpation, and a tyranny, as would be their attempts to set up their own commands, wills, pleasure, or discretion, in the place of any and all the physical, mental, and moral laws of the universe.”
Lysander Spooner

The nation-state – which has become the "typhoid Mary" in all of this – continues to expose otherwise healthy tissue to the disease-ridden influence that has reduced Western civilization to a terminal state.”
Butler Shaffer
