The individual is the true reality in life. A cosmos in himself, he does not exist for the State, nor for that abstraction called society, or the nation, which is only a collection of individuals. Man, the individual, has always been and necessarily is the sole source and motive power of evolution and progress. Civilization has been a continuous struggle of the individual or of groups of individuals against the State and even against society, that is, against the majority subdued and hypnotized by the State and State worship.

Anarchists Under Ron Paul’s Bed
One of the makers of the Anarchism in America video (about which Ive previously blogged) has a piece up at HoughPough on Ron Paul, Libertarianism, and the Anarchist Connection. Benjamin Tucker, Lysander Spooner, Ezra Heywood, Angela Heywood, Emma Goldman, Ayn Rand, Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Karl Hess, and Murray Bookchin all get name-checked.
The friendly words quoted from Bookchin do not reflect his later views (on which Ive blogged glancingly).
Happy Abolish-the-Presidency Day!
