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]
