Hola gente.
Van algunas palabras de Hagbard Celine, en inglés (en esta compu no encuentro los acentos, y de casualidad algunas letras).

Perdon por la demora en la publicación, pero recien hoy encontré un cyber.
Saludos desde Fes, Marruecos.

Human society can be structured either according to the Principle of Authority or according to the Principle of Liberty. Authority is a static social configuration in which people act as superiors and inferiors: a sado-masochistic relationship. Liberty is a dynamic social configuration in which people act as equals: an erotic relationship. In every interaction between people, either Authority or Liberty is the dominant factor. Families, churches, lodges, clubs and corporations are either more authoritarian than libertarian or more libertarian than authoritarian.

It becomes obvious as we proceed that the most pugnacious and intolerant form of Authority is the State, which even today dares to assume an absolutism which the church itself has long ago surrendered and to enforce obedience with the techniques of the Church's old and shameful Inquisition. Every form of authoritarianism is, however, a small "state", even if it has a membership of only two. Freud's remark to the effect that the delusion of one man is Neurosis and the delusion of many men is Religion can generalized: The Authoritarianism of one man is Crime and the Authoritarianism of many men is the State. Benjamin Tucker wrote quite accurately:

"Aggression is simply another name of Government. Aggression, invasion, government are interchargeable terms. The essence of government is control, or the attempt to control. He who attempts to control another is a governor, an aggressor, an invader; and the nature of such invasion is not changed, whether it be made by one man upon another man, after the manner of the ordinary criminal, or by one upon all other men, after the manner of an absolute monarch, or by all other men upon one man, after the manner of a modern democracy."

Tucker's use of the word "invasion" is remarkably precise, considering that he wrote more than fifty years before the basic discoveries of ethology.
Every act of authority is, in fact, an invasion of the psychic and physical territory of another. Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and "progress", everything on earth that is manmade and not given to us by nature; is the concrete manifestation of some man's refusal to bow to authority. We would own no more, know no more, and be no more than the first apelike hominids if it were not for the rebellious; the recalcitrant and the intransigent.

As Oscar Wilde truly said, "Disobedience was man's Original Virtue."
