„It is a double-edged makeshift to entrust an individual or a group of individuals with the authority to resort to violence.“

Quelle: The Ultimate Foundation of Economic Science (1962), Chapter 5: On Some Popular Errors Concerning the Scope and Method of Economics, § 10 : The Concept of a Perfect System of Government
Kontext: It is a double-edged makeshift to entrust an individual or a group of individuals with the authority to resort to violence. The enticement implied is too tempting for a human being. The men who are to protect the community against violent aggression easily turn into the most dangerous aggressors. They transgress their mandate. They misuse their power for the oppression of those whom they were expected to defend against oppression. The main political problem is how to prevent the police power from becoming tyrannical. This is the meaning of all the struggles for liberty.

„Today in Europe, violence instigated by individuals and groups who fear diversity is spreading“

—  Gjorge Ivanov President of Macedonia 1960

Kontext: Socially, the crisis is putting the European model of integration to the test. Instead of being united in diversity, will Europe now be united against diversity? Instead of integration without assimilation, will Europe now prefer integration through assimilation? The Arab philosopher Averroes wrote that “ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate and hate leads to violence.” Today in Europe, violence instigated by individuals and groups who fear diversity is spreading

„The State’s behavior is violence, and it calls its violence “law”; that of the individual, “crime.”“

—  Max Stirner, buch Der Einzige und sein Eigentum

The state calls its own violence law, but that of the individual, crime.

„When an individual wishes to stand in opposition to authority, he does best to find support for his position from others in his group.“

—  Stanley Milgram Social psychologist 1933 - 1984

Quelle: Obedience to Authority : An Experimental View (1974), p. 121
Kontext: When an individual wishes to stand in opposition to authority, he does best to find support for his position from others in his group. The mutual support provided by men for each other is the strongest bulwark we have against the excesses of authority. (Not that the group is always on the right side of the issue. Lynch mobs and groups of predatory hoodlums remind us that groups may be vicious in the influence they exert.)

„Leadership means that a group, large or small, is willing to entrust authority to a person who has shown judgement, wisdom, personal appeal, and proven competence.“

—  Walt Disney American film producer and businessman 1901 - 1966

Unsourced variant: Leadership implies a strong faith or belief in something. It may be a cause, an institution, a political or business operation in which a man takes active direction by virtue of his faith and self-assurance. And, of course, leadership means a group, large or small, which is willing to entrust such authority to a man — or a woman — in judgment, wisdom, personal appeal and proven competence.
