The Idolatry of the State by Franz Oppenheimer

 http://www.franz-oppenheimer.de/fo27a.htm





"What is the State? Everyone seems to make an idol of it. Some regard it as
the most beneficent of deities, which men should worship with all their
heart and with all their soul, while to others it is the worst of devils,
the curse of mankind, and deserves to be sent back to the hell from which it
came."

"[I]t (the State) is a mixed form of human relationships, the bastard
offspring of might and right, of *»ethos *and *kratos«." *
