Quote of the Day – January 30, 2009

Voltairine de Cleyre

Anarchism, to me, means not only the denial of authority, not only a new economy, but a revision of the principles of morality. It means the development of the individual as well as the assertion of the individual. It means self-responsibility, and not leader worship.

Freedom will only be possible if each takes responsibility for the self; battling the outward authority is only half of the battle. Battling the inward authority which has been instilled since birth can be just as difficult, and just as dangerous.

  2. Totally!
