the holy experiment

the origins of individualist anarchism in america, murray rothbard.
If John Blackwell had any idea that the Quakers were a meek people, he was in for a rude surprise. Blackwell was to find out quickly that a devotion to peace, liberty, and individualism in no sense implied an attitude of passive resignation to tyranny -- quite the contrary.

good read.

the whole concept of man engaging in a holy experiment is hilarious, and the phrase is a contradiction in terms. there's nothing holy about experimenting with others' lives and livelihoods. there's nothing experimental about holiness, which is the dedication to truth and love through which one can know one's lord, god.

a society ignores this at its peril.
