“If crimes are committed they must be seen as a disease, and punishment as treatment rather than as social vengeance.”
Daniel Guérin, Anarchism

“Far from checking the spread of immorality, repression has always extended and deepended it. Thus it is futile to oppose it by rigorous legislation which trespasses on individual liberty.”
Daniel Guérin, Anarchism
