Mikhail Aleksandrovich Bakunin

I do not want to be I, I want to be We.

The idea of god implies the abdication of human reason & justice; it is the most decisive negation of human liberty & necessarily ends in the enslavement of mankind both in theory & practice. He who desires to worship god must harbour no childish illusions about the matter but bravely renounce his liberty & humanity.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Religion is a collective insanity.
