"The anarchist curse " the presumption of evil " descends from the condemned institution to the individuals who are necessary to maintain the life of that institution. The institution is the skeleton, in effect, which requires the flesh and blood of real people to operate. These people are highly suspect in anarchist eyes, even if they do not personally aggress, because they are the components required to translate the institutional aggression of the State into concrete reality." George H. Smith on not merely the efficacy, but the ethics of electoral voting and its implications for voting anarchists and libertarians.
