"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|
|Hardly ever do the advocates of free capitalism realize how utterly their ideal was frustrated at the moment the state assumed control of the monetary system. … Yet without it the ideal of the state-free economy collapses. A “free” capitalism with governmental responsibility for money and credit has lost its innocence. From that point on it is no longer a matter of principle but one of expediency how far one wishes or permits governmental interference to go. Money control is the supreme and most comprehensive of all governmental controls short of expropriation.|
- Gustav Stolper, THIS AGE OF FABLE (1942), p. 59.
