Gotta love Bakunin

A friend sent me this.

The State will no longer call itself Monarchy; it will call itself
Republic: but it will be none the less the State - that is, a tutelage
officially and regularly established by a minority of competent men,
men of virtuous genius or talent, who will watch and guide the conduct
of this great, incorrigible, and terrible child, the people. The
professors of the School and the functionaries of the State will call
themselves republicans; but they will be none the less tutors,
shepherds, and the people will remain what they have been hitherto from
all eternity, a flock. Beware of shearers, for where there is a flock
there necessarily must be shepherds also to shear and devour it.
-- Bakunin, God and the State
