"In any given month, a typical state kills more of its own citizens pro rata than al Qaeda killed in the United States on September 11th, 2001 -- some openly, bullet to brain, some through the suffocating effects of regulation and prohibition -- while extorting from those same citizens a double-digit percentage of their earnings for 'protection' from the likes of Osama bin Laden. By any standard of human decency and well-being, the state’s performance constitutes not just massive failure but a monstrous negation of all that is right and good. While anarchists cannot reasonably pledge to end murder and theft, we can and do offer an end to the institutionalization and legitimization of mass murder and theft in the name of 'government.'"
