Quote from Ammon Hennacy,

"An anarchist is anyone
who doesn't need a cop
to tell him what to do."


Ammon Hennacy (more quotes by Ammon Hennacy or books by/about Ammon Hennacy)

(1893-1970) Catholic anarchist, pacifist, vegetarian, draft refuser in two world wars, tax resister, "one-person revolution in America."


Whenever Ammon was arrested for any number of reasons, mostly for "illegal" picketing, instead of pleading guilty or innocent he would plead 'anarchy'. This was his reply to the judge's question 'What is an anarchist?'
