"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.
