Anarchism is not only a stateless society but also a harmonized society that exposes man to the stimuli provided by both agrarian and urban life, to physical activity and mental activity, to unrepressed sensuality and self-directed spirituality, to communal solidarity and individual development, to regional uniqueness and worldwide brotherhood, to spontaneity and self-discipline, to the elimination of toil and the promotion of craftsmanship.
I guess art is that amount of passion that drips out of an individual when they’re filled to overflowing
As many critics have pointed, out, terrorism is not an enemy. It is a tactic. Because the United States itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics, the slogans of today’s war on terrorism merely makes the United States look hypocritical to the rest of the world.
The attempt to silence a man is the greatest honor you can bestow on him. It means that you recognize his superiority to yourself.
Joseph Sobran (via moralanarchism)
There is no such thing as *Quitting* in our lives! We simply enjoy something, until we don’t anymore. The idea of “quitting” is a judgement made by someone else who feels that we should have taken part in something longer than we chose to.

Everything the State says is a lie, and everything it has it has stolen.
Friedrich Nietzsche (via yourtreeman)
You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
Mahatma Gandhi (via purplebuddhaproject)
I won’t trade humanity for patriotism.

Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
Elie Wiesel (via makelvenotwar)
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.
If we really saw war, what war does to young minds and bodies, it would be impossible to embrace the myth of war. If we had to stand over the mangled corpses of schoolchildren killed in Afghanistan and listen to the wails of their parents, we would not be able to repeat clichés we use to justify war. This is why war is carefully sanitized. This is why we are given war’s perverse and dark thrill but are spared from seeing war’s consequences. The mythic visions of war keep it heroic and entertaining…
The wounded, the crippled, and the dead are, in this great charade, swiftly carted offstage. They are war’s refuse. We do not see them. We do not hear them. They are doomed, like wandering spirits, to float around the edges of our consciousness, ignored, even reviled. The message they tell is too painful for us to hear. We prefer to celebrate ourselves and our nation by imbibing the myths of glory, honor, patriotism, and heroism, words that in combat become empty and meaningless.

I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you are afraid. You’re afraid of us, you’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell how this was going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin.
[…] I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible.
Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.
Pay no attention to harsh words uttered by others.

When I find someone that truly offers something, and says something, that enriches my life, and my own humanity, they will have a hard time getting rid of me.
