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
No external force will ever succeed in making you ‘want what you do not want and believe what you do not believe’. A man may take my life, but not my faith.
- Gerhard Oestreich, NEOSTOICISM AND THE EARLY MODERN STATE (1982), p. 27.
