Joseph R. Strayer

“A man can lead a reasonably full life without a family, a fixed local residence, or a religious affiliation, but if he is stateless he is nothing. He has no rights, no security, and little opportunity for a useful career. There is no salvation on earth outside the framework of an organized state.”


Joseph Reese Strayer, On the Medieval Origins of the Modern State
