To Be Governed

To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

-- Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809-1865), French mutualist political philosopher, The General Idea of the Revolution in the 19th Century, 1851
