I must say that I recognized at once that we had never understood the meaning of these words, so common and yet so sacred: Justice, Equity, Liberty; that concerning each of these principles our ideas have been utterly obscure; and, in fact, that this ignorance was the sole cause, both of the poverty that devours us, and of all the calamities that have ever afflicted the human race.
~ Pierre-Joseph Proudhon ~
