We two are enemies, the State and I. Every State is a tyranny, be it the tyranny of a single man or a group. The State has always one purpose: to limit, control, subordinate the individual and subject him to the general purpose…. Through its censorship, its supervision, and its police the State tries to obstruct all free activity and sees this repression as its duty, because the instinct of self-preservation demands it. The State does not permit me to use my thoughts to their full value and communicate them to other men… unless they are its own…. Otherwise it shuts me up.
