De la Boetie was right; Rothbard was right; the state, even the most powerful ever, depends on the consent of the governed. If people withdraw their consent, the state can tip over like Ozymandias in the desert. The worldwide peace offensive, led and inspired by Ron Paul, is extremely difficult for the regime to handle. We still have huge work ahead, against the warmongers and the merchants of death, but we can certainly be of good cheer. It is, after all, the peacemakers who shall be called the children of God.9:36 am on September 9, 2013 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
