ANARCHY
[ Also see Chaos Disorder Empire Government Law Mob Order Revolution Society Union Unity Violence ]

Bad as any government may be, it is seldom worse than anarchy.
      - Aesop

Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.
      - Louis D. Brandeis,
        part of his dissent in the case of Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438, 485 (1928)

The choking, sweltering, deadly, and killing rule of no rule; the consecration of cupidity and braying of folly, and dim stupidity and baseness, in most of the affairs of men. Slopshirts attainable three-halfpence cheaper by the ruin of living bodies and immortal souls.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Anarchy is the only slight glimmer of hope.
      - Mick Jagger

In a state of anarchy power is the measure of right.
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan)

Anarchy is the sure consequence of tyranny; or no power that is not limited by laws can ever be protected by them.
      - John Milton

Every anarchist is a baffled dictator.
      - Benito Mussolini

Anarchism is a game at which the police can beat you.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Misalliance

If the emperor and the palace officials cannot get along well, the country will surely come to extinction.
      - Su Shi
