“Violence is the tool of the state. Knowledge and the mind are the tools of free people”

American author Llewellyn Harrison ("Lew") Rockwell wrote in “The Libertarian Paradox” on LewRockwell.com on July 24, 2013:

“I will leave you with the final libertarian paradox, which is this: while on the one hand we are teachers of the philosophy of freedom, as long as we love and cherish these great ideas, we shall always be students as well. Continue to explore and discover, to read and to write, to discuss and to persuade. Violence is the tool of the state. Knowledge and the mind are the tools of free people.”

The saying “Violence is the tool of the state. Knowledge and the mind are the tools of free people” has been printed on an image.

If the state loses its grip over your mind, it loses the key to its very survival. Violence is the tool of the state. Knowledge and the mind are the tools of free people.  Lew Rockwell
