“Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals.
We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery, poverty, crime and confusion existing in society.” – Lucy Parsons – anarchist, labor organizer 1853-1942
“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the earth, the money, and the machines.” – Voltairine de Cleyre – anarchist, feminist 1866-1912
