For l. a. Boétie speaks such a lot sharply to the matter which all libertarians—indeed, all rivals of despotism—find rather tough: the matter of approach. dealing with the devastating and possible overwhelming energy of the fashionable nation, how can a unfastened and extremely varied international be led to?
