The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

Great read, love this quote:

A ratio­nal anar­chist believes that con­cepts such as “state” and “soci­ety” and “gov­ern­ment” have no exis­tence save as phys­i­cal­ly exem­pli­fied in the acts of self-respon­si­ble indi­vid­u­als. He believes that it is impos­si­ble to shift blame, share blame, dis­trib­ute blame. . . as blame, guilt, respon­si­bil­i­ty are mat­ters tak­ing place inside human beings singly and nowhere else. But being ratio­nal, he knows that not all indi­vid­u­als hold his eval­u­a­tions, so he tries to live per­fect­ly in an imper­fect world… aware that his effort will be less than per­fect yet undis­mayed by self-knowl­edge of self-fail­ure.
