Benjamin Tucker Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by Benjamin Tucker from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

To force a man to pay for the violation of his own
liberty is indeed an addition of insult to injury.

First, then, State Socialism, which may be described
as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should
be managed by the government,
regardless of individual choice.
- Benjamin Tucker

Such security is equal liberty.
But it is not necessarily equality in the use of the earth.
- Benjamin Tucker

For, just as it has been said that there is no half-way
house between Rome and Reason,
so it may be said that there is no half-way house between
State Socialism and Anarchism.
- Benjamin Tucker

 

Socialism, on the contrary, extends its function to
the description of society as it should be,
and the discovery of the means of making it what it should be.
- Benjamin Tucker

We are here, on earth.
Not one of us has any right to the earth.
- Benjamin Tucker

Aggression is simply another name for government.
- Benjamin Tucker

Laissez Faire was very good sauce for the goose,
labor, but was very poor sauce for the gander,
capital.
- Benjamin Tucker

The exercise of authority over the same area by two
States is a contradiction.
- Benjamin Tucker

But this is not to say that the society which inflicts
capital punishment commits murder.
- Benjamin Tucker

The moment that justice must be paid for by the victim
of injustice it becomes itself injustice.
- Benjamin Tucker

I have also seen it stated that Capital punishment
is murder in its worst form.
I should like to know upon what principle of human
society these assertions are based and justified.
- Benjamin Tucker

But which is the State's essential function,
aggression or defence, few seem to know or care.
- Benjamin Tucker

Murder is an offensive act.
The term cannot be applied legitimately to any defensive act.
- Benjamin Tucker

Therefore coercion of the non-invasive,
when justifiable at all, is to be justified on the ground that it secures,
not a minimum of ' invasion, but a minimum of pain.
- Benjamin Tucker

The essence of government is control,
or the attempt to control.
- Benjamin Tucker

Commanded love of all men indiscriminately is an obliteration
of distinction between love and hate,
and therefore is not love at all.
- Benjamin Tucker

The cost of justice can be justly paid only by the invader.
- Benjamin Tucker

The two principles referred to are Authority and Liberty,
and the names of the two schools of Socialistic thought
which fully and unreservedly represent one or the other of them are,
respectively, State Socialism and Anarchism.
- Benjamin Tucker

And this is the Anarchistic definition of the State:
the embodiment of the principle of invasion in an individual,
or a band of individuals, assuming to act as representatives
or masters of the entire people within a given area.
- Benjamin Tucker

The claim of the State Socialists, however,
that this right would not be exercised in matters pertaining
to the individual in the more intimate and private
relations of his life is not borne out by the history of governments.
- Benjamin Tucker

One thing, however, is sure, - that in all cases the
effort should be to impose all the cost of repairing
the wrong upon the doer of the wrong.
This alone is real justice, and of course such justice is necessarily free.
- Benjamin Tucker

Defence was an afterthought, prompted by necessity;
and its introduction as a State function,
though effected doubtless with a view to the strengthening of the State,
was really and in principle the initiation of the State's destruction.
- Benjamin Tucker

This brings us to Anarchism, which may be described
as the doctrine that all the affairs of men should
be managed by individuals or voluntary associations,
and that the State should be abolished.
- Benjamin Tucker

The Anarchists answer that the abolition of the State
will leave in existence a defensive association,
resting no longer on a compulsory but on a voluntary basis,
which will restrain invaders by any means that may prove necessary.
- Benjamin Tucker

In the matter of the maintenance and rearing of children
the Anarchists would neither institute the communistic
nursery which the State Socialists favor nor keep the
communistic school system which now prevails.
- Benjamin Tucker

The right of such control is already admitted by the State Socialists,
though they maintain that, as a matter of fact,
the individual would be allowed a much larger liberty than he now enjoys.
- Benjamin Tucker

I insist that there is nothing sacred in the life of an invader,
and there is no valid principle of human society that
forbids the invaded to protect themselves in whatever way they can.
- Benjamin Tucker

Almost the only persons who may be said to comprehend
even approximately the significance,
principles, and purposes of Socialism are the chief
leaders of the extreme wings of the Socialistic forces,
and perhaps a few of the money kings themselves.
- Benjamin Tucker

Marx, as we have seen, solved it by declaring capital
to be a different thing from product,
and maintaining that it belonged to society and should
be seized by society and employed for the benefit of all alike.
- Benjamin Tucker
