"If one takes care of the means, the end will take care
Statement of Purpose: Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve
a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible
with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura
of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably
strengthen that legitimacy. Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State
through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent
on which State power ultimately depends.

Quote of the Day
To Risk To laugh is to risk appearing a fool, To weep is to risk appearing sentimental To reach out to another is to risk involvement, To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss To love is to risk not being loved in return, To hope is to risk despair To live is to risk dying, To try is to risk failure But risks must be taken Because the greatest hazard in life it to risk nothing. The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid sorrow. But he cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or live. Chained by his servitude he is a slave who has forfeited all freedom Only a person who risks is truly free. The pessimist complains about the wind; The optimist expects it to change; And the realist adjusts the sails
