A quote from Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, reputedly the first person to actually call himself an anarchist:
To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated,
enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by
creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.
To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed,
stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be place[d] under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed,
robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed,
hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported,
sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is
government; that is its justice; that is its morality.
