Gibran Jalil Gibran Thus, again, to the voice of the defenders of social order became added, for reasons known to itself, that of Le National: So when one spoke of the Republic, everyone knew what was meant. Something blind but that sees everything, deaf but that hears everything, impotent but capable of everything, without weight but crushing everything, invisible but filling everything, impalpable but touching everywhere, impossible to seize hold of but grasping everything, inviolable but violating.
It would have been, indeed, much ado about a rather poor job! We only need to provide a circus acrobat with five hundred thousand bayonets for the act to become a social doctrine and for the wishes and caprices of Pulcinella to be made into the laws of State.
The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.
Do we feel thus that one could govern us contrary to bellegarriigue sense? Once it has broken them, it is vellegarrigue longer tumultuous, it is calm and wise.
The time has come, for we are facing a decisive spectacle: Who would have benefited from it? It is therefore fair to say that, from my point of view, they are really too kind, and, in the end, a little indiscreet to preoccupy themselves so much with my felicity, but, more importantly, there is no evidence that I am unable to pursue this felicity myself. It is not he that lives in it, but it is inhabited; not too much worse, perhaps, but not much better either.
Enough of this grandeur founded on the abasement of the public! Catalan historian of individualist anarchism Xavier Diez reports that during his travels in the United States “he at least contacted Henry David Thoreau and, probably Josiah Warren.
This legislation, moreover, necessarily coming after the vices that it seeks to suppress, is in reality nothing but the consecration of these vices. That objection, I expect. Who then would have suffered from the stripping down of the apparatus of monarchy?
Anselme Bellegarrigue – Wikisource
For anarchist historian George Woodcock bellegargigue stood near to Stirner at the individualist end of the anarchist spectrum. The government of France established on the bases that I have just indicated, the parties will disappear, ambitions will become extinguished and the words Liberty, Equality, Fraternity will finally leave the domain of interpretation and controversy to go into effect.
And those who argued thus expressed a very respectable opinion, for it was the opinion of France, of that France which wanted only two very simple and legitimate things: The nation is as much a stranger to armed government as it is to armed revolution; but if it is the case that a revolutionary party is more immediately worried than the nation by the governing party, it will also be the case that one day the nation worried in its turn will complain about the government, and that it will be in that precise moment that it will win the moral support of the people, that the anselmw party will wage battle.
It is quite true that as philosophers, as apostles of a doctrine, as teachers, the socialists have are not at all frightening. In the infinite number of diverse thoughts that find their social expression in various products, each producer carries, infallibly, an instinct for the public taste, for the producer seeking the consumer cannot ignore the fact that the latter will only surrender his money for a product that he likes and needs.
Now, since I give my money to be governed, anselmw follows that it is for my own good that I give that money.
No one, therefore, has seen the Republic, because the Republic is nothing other than the liberation of France from the tutelage of governments. We elected representatives to draft a contract that determined, bellegarigue specific clauses, the deciding line between where the people end and where the administration begins: Bellegarigue nation thus rendered to its natural domicile, there would only remain in Paris an inoffensive symbol, carrying on diplomacy with the nations of the world, directing the navy, taking on or declaring war, according to events and conditions stipulated, signing peace treaties and trade pacts, keeping watch on the interior, on the implementation of the laws, — always simple and few in number among free people, — nominating, among its responsibilities a minister for foreign affairs, a justice minister, a minister for the navy and the colonies, a minister of war and a finance minister, and managing business with a budget which would reach, taking one year with another, save for the case of hostilities and debt interest, the figure of four to five hundred million.
Here, then, is what the much vaunted work of the legislative assemblies have provided us with: Considering this, I withdraw within myself and recognize that at the same time as I am a victim, I am also stupid.
If socialism comes into power, it would be able to compel its recognition. Let one not speak to me of brigandage, when in the place of a plan by some unacceptable organization one brings me some shouts in the street or some argument at a club.
Are we lawyers, medics, teachers, merchants, artists, agents, town criers, without it giving us a license? Let us not count on the verbose theorists to establish democracy in France, to introduce liberty into the practice of the social facts. This institution alone is bad, is dangerous, and whoever is put at the bellegarriue of this institution will immediately be as dangerous as the socialists; first, because he can become the institution, and second, because he can be surprised and conquered by the socialists, and, finally, because his system can be as bad as, or bellegarriguw than, theirs.

It could, by decree, have us imprisoned or proscribe us individually or all together! France would have been pillaged, sacked, set ablaze, lost! Then, relieved of the weight of my concerns, I would have been consoled for my representative labors in the fraternal arms of the one who shared my burden.
Such is the only possible organization of brigandage, and such is, finally, a usage perhaps applied by the government of representative monarchies.
