"Logically there can be no State or State apparatus without a market. Wild grains, wild animals, and trees live whether there is a State or not. Food, shelter, and clothing must be produced from natural resources by people who farm, and build, and weave. In a society where the division of labor is practiced, State agents must get their necessities from the producers. It is only after a surplus of goods and services have been produced and ‘saved’ up that there is any room for the survival of those who do not directly produce."
