• "Everything that can be said about the suffrage may be summed up in a sentence. To vote is to give up your own power. To elect a master or many, for a long or short time, is to resign one's liberty." (From : "Why Anarchists Don't Vote," by Élisée Reclus.)

That will mean freedom, security and opportunity for all who live." (From : "Industrial Socialism," by Frank Bohn and William ....)
