    Direct action ... is the logical, consistent method of Anarchism.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Religion! How it dominates man’s mind, how it humiliates and degrades his soul. God is everything, man is nothing, says religion. But out of that nothing God has created a kingdom so despotic, so tyrannical, so cruel, so terribly exacting that naught but gloom and tears and blood have ruled the world since gods began.
    —Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
