"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
Good Luck, Bad Luck? An old man and his son worked a small farm, with only one horse to pull the plow. One day the horse ran away. “How terrible,” sympathized the neighbors. “What bad luck.” “Who knows whether it is bad luck or good luck,” the farmer replied. A week later, the horse returned from the mountains, leading five wild mares into the barn. “What wonderful luck!” said the neighbors. “Good luck? Bad luck? Who knows?” answered the old man. The next day, the son, trying to tame one of the horses, fell and broke his leg. “How terrible. What bad luck!” “Bad luck? Good luck?” The army came to all the farms to take the young men for war. The farmer’s son was of no use to them, so he was spared. “Good? Bad?”
