    Just came across a quote that I want to verify because I impetuously copied and pasted it to my facebook page. “Gentlemen, the time is coming when there will be two great classes, Socialists and Anarchists. The Anarchists want the government to be nothing, and the Socialists want government to be everything. There can be no greater contrast. Well, the time will come when there will be only these two great parties, the Anarchists representing the laissez faire doctrine and the Socialists representing the extreme view on the other side, and when that time comes I am an Anarchist.”
    –William Graham Sumner


    It is attributed to Sumner by Irving Fisher’s son: http://praxeology.net/WGS-Anarchy.htm
