The End of Power

When the organized religion of Power, known as
Communism (more properly called Statism), shall
have destroyed all values, and reduced the
individual to a nonentity, will its overthrow by
moral force be accomplished. In degrading the
individual it destroys itself, simply because the
degraded individual loses interest in production
and ceases to provide the wherewithal for the
State. As the State rots away from malnutrition,
the individual begins to reassert himself in
something called Civil Disobedience, Passive
Resistance, or some other kind of revolution, and
the contest is all in his favor. Freedom comes when
Caesar is no longer able to maintain his legions. --
