Clarence Darrow (1857–1938) was an attorney who, from experience, learned that the entire state apparatus of courts, trials, and prisons was the worst single feature of the state. For this reason, he became a radical, and he wrote Resist Not Evil as his manifesto.
Ludwig von Mises: "Despots and democratic majorities are drunk with power. They must reluctantly admit that they are subject to the laws of nature. But they reject the very notion of economic law . . . economic history is a long record of government policies that failed because they were designed with a bold disregard for the laws of economics." - Austrian Economics: An Anthology
