We got further smashing windows than we ever got letting them smash our heads.
~ Christabel Pankhurst, Suffragette
What happens in disasters demonstrates everything an anarchist ever wanted to believe about the triumph of civil society and the failure of institutional authority. ~ Rebecca Solnit 'A Paradise Built in Hell'
I don't vote. Because I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain.
Yeah, people like to twist that around, I know.. they say "Well, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain." But where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent people, and they get into office and screw everything up, well, you
are responsible for what they have done. You
caused the problem, you
voted them in, you
have no right to complain. I
, on the other hand, who did not vote, who, in fact, did not even leave the house on election day, am in no way responsible for what these people have done, and have every
right to complain as loud as I want about the mess you
created that I
had nothing to with. ~ George Carlin
