The Quotable Max Stirner

Every state is a despotism, be the despot one or many...

Everything sacred is a tie, a fetter.

The state practices 'violence', the individual must not do so. The state's behavior is violence, and it calls its violence 'law'; that of the individual 'crime'.

Owner and creator of my right, I recognize no other source of right than - me, neither God nor the state nor nature nor even man himself with his 'eternal rights of man', neither divine nor human right.

Political liberalism, like everything religious, counts on respect, humaneness, the virtues of love. Therefore does it live in incessant vexation.

Was it an intentional thing to turn off the Post Subject Line? Are you wedded to having the blog set up like that?

Not intentional. How do I turn it on?
