Nietzsche On The State

State is the name of the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it tells lies too; and this lie crawls from its mouth: “I, the state, am the people.”

It’s a lie!

The state lies in all the tongues of good and evil; and whatever it says it lies–and whatever it has it has stolen.

It will give you everything if you worship it, the new idol: thus it purchases the luster of your virtue and the look of your proud eyes.

–Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
