To me the state is now the common enemy; I’ve said it many times, I would like minimum state and maximum individual. But it may be necessary to wait … I don’t know whether it will take some decades or centuries -which historically is nothing-, but I certainly will not get to see that world without states.

That would require an ethical humanity, and also a humanity intellectually stronger than it is now…, than what we are; because certainly we are very immoral and very unintelligent compared with those men of the future; so I agree with the phrase: “I dogmatically believe in progress.”

– Jorge Luis Borges – Argentine writer – 1899-1986
