"The anarchist is really just another species of collectivist, who holds romantic notions about the level of violence necessary to destroy the existing order, while pointedly ignoring the level of violence needed to sustain the 'anarchy' he would replace it with. Economic liberty is an essential component of individuality -- a person who owns nothing is a slave, not an anarchist. The concept of ownership is inseparable from the kind of 'vertical organization' anarchists hate, because people will always freely choose to cooperate in a structured manner that produces different levels of leadership."
