"[T]here are, at bottom, basically two ways to order social affairs, Coercively, through the mechanisms of the state -- what we can call political society. And voluntarily, through the private interaction of individuals and associations -- what we can call civil society. ... In a civil society, you make the decision. In a political society, someone else does. ... Civil society is based on reason, eloquence, and persuasion, which is to say voluntarism. Political society, on the other hand, is based on force." ~ Ed Crane
Occupation:potter and thinker
Artist, happy person.
Voluntaryist, free-marketeer, non-aggressor.
Occasionally, I rag the government, and the very concept of coercive government itself. It is amusing.
