Quote of the Day: Bad People

...many...have commented...in regard to anarchism: "Getting rid of government doesn't get rid of bad people. Peaceful people would mind their own business while violent aggressive people would organize and force their will on everyone else!"

To which I reply as usual: What you fear would happen under anarchism has already happened under government as we know it. The violent, aggressive people have organized and forced their will on everyone else, while also bamboozling their victims to think that this situation is a good deal. Such is precisely the nature of the government that exists virtually everywhere on earth, the sort of government that anarchists wish to eliminate.-Robert Higgs
