The State has guns and men to use them. […][H]owever, it not only can fail to coerce a rebellious majority, it cannot even stop an enterprising minority of black marketeers and other Counter-Economists. The State must be defeated in each person’s mind. Once you personally reject its hold over you, you are as free as your intelligence, your will to take risks, and the aid of your allies can keep you. New converts to Christianity describe a similar process, which they call being “born again”.
— Samuel Edward Konkin III in An Agorist Primer, ch. 8, p. 101
