Jorge Luis Borges: On the alleged necessity of the State

… for me the State is the now the common enemy; I would like—and I've said this many times—a minimum of State and a maximum of individuality. … I certainly won't see a world without States. For this it is necessary for humanity to be ethical, and what is more, humanity must be intellectually stronger that what exists today. … Without a doubt, we are quite immoral and not very intelligent in comparison to the men who are to come, and because of this … "I believe dogmatically in progress." … I think that in time we will deserve to not have government.

~Jorge Luis Borges
