“You have to check your mes­sages, Leonard! The leaving of a mes­sage is one half of a so­cial con­tract, which is com­pleted by the checking of the mes­sage! If that con­tract breaks down, then all so­cial con­tracts break down, and we de­scend into an­archy!” – Sheldon Cooper in The Big Bang Theory: “The Clas­si­fied Ma­te­rials Tur­bu­lence” (2009)

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Inigo Mon­toya in The Princess Bride (1987)

“En­tirely in con­trast to the pop­ular con­cep­tion, an­ar­chism is prob­ably the most ide­al­istic and peaceful of po­lit­ical the­o­ries. As a phi­los­ophy, it as­sumes a system in which the in­di­vidual is free and living in peace; it looks for­ward to a time when human be­ings can co­exist within a frame­work of vol­un­tary associations.

It is in no sense ei­ther Marxist or Leninist; an­ar­chism in fact re­jects the Marxist-Leninist theory of the dic­ta­tor­ship of the pro­le­tariat, as it re­jects any theory in­volving con­trol of one class or in­di­vidual by an­other.” —Tom Burnam in The Dic­tio­nary Of Mis­in­for­ma­tion (p. 7, 1975)
