Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

From The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude by Étienne de La Boétie:

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed. I do not ask that you place hands upon the tyrant to topple him over, but simply that you support him no longer; then you will behold him, like a great Colossus whose pedestal has been pulled away, fall of his own weight and break into pieces.
