Benjamin Tucker“What is the ballot? It is neither more nor less than a paper representative of the bayonet, the billy [club], and the bullet. It is a labor-saving device for ascertaining on which side force lies and bowing to the inevitable. The voice of the majority saves bloodshed, but it is no less the arbitrament of force than is the decree of the most absolute of despots backed by the most powerful of armies.”

–Benjamin Tucker, Instead of a Book
