Liberty Quotation: L. Neil Smith on Society Without Weapons

Quote Posted on Updated on

l_neil_smith“People who object to weapons aren’t abolishing violence, they’re begging for rule by brute force, when the biggest, strongest animals among men were always automatically ‘right.’ ¬†Guns ended that, and social democracy is a hollow farce without an armed populace to make it work.”

L. Neil Smith, The Probability Broach [1980]
