"For no institution but the state do we upend our instinctive misgivings about the consequences of arbitrary power. Nowhere else do we suppose that a lone, unaccountable monopolist will render to the consumer anything worth its price, that the vagaries of bare authority will decide in our favor. Instead, we rely on the structural safeguards of open competition to render the kinds of results we consider desirable. Each individual possesses a fundamental, natural right to secede from the constraints of authority and hierarchy." (04/21/11)
