“As a state religion is the rape of the conscience, so a state political administration is the castration of liberty: deadly devices, wrought by the same madness for oppression and intolerance, whose poisonous fruits show their identity. State administration produced the Inquisition. State administration produced the police.”

–P.J. Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution in the 19th Century
