Quote for the Week

Tolkien

My political opinions lean more and more to Anarchy (philosophically understood, meaning abolition of control not whiskered men with bombs) … the most improper job of any man, even saints (who at any rate were at least unwilling to take it on), is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

–J. R. R. Tolkien, Letter to his son Christopher Tolkien (29 November, 1943); courtesy of Wikiquote
