Alexander Berkman

was an anarchist known for his political activism and writing
What is this thing we call government? Is it anything but organized violence? The law orders you to obey, and if you don't obey, it will compel you by force - all governments, all law and authority finally rest on force and violence, on punishment or fear of punishment.More Alexander Berkman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
War paralyzes your courage and deadens the spirit of true manhood.More Alexander Berkman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Socialism, like Christianity destroyed itself to gain powerMore Alexander Berkman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
War paralyzes your courage and deadens the spirit of true manhood. It degrades and stupefies with the sense that you are not responsible, that 'tis not yours to think and reason why, but to do and die,' like the hundred thousand others doomed like yourself. War means blind obedience, unthinking stupidity, brutish callousness, wanton destruction, and irresponsible murder.More Alexander Berkman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the system, rather than individuals, that is the source of pollution and degradation. My prison-house environment is but another manifestation of the Midas-hand, whose cursed touch turns everything to the brutal service of Mammon.More Alexander Berkman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
