“Representative democracy in the United States has broken down. Our legislators do not represent those who elected them but rather the minority who finance their political campaigns and who control the organs of communication…that have made politics a game for the rich only. Representative government in the USA represents money not people and therefore has forfeited our allegiance and moral support.”—Edward Abbey

“And the so-called ‘political process’ is a fraud: Our elected officials, like our bureaucratic functionaries, like even our judges, are largely the indentured servants of the commercial interests.”? Edward Abbey

“If the world of men is truly as ugly, cruel, trivial, unjust and stinking with fraud as it usually appears, and if it is really impossible to make it pleasant and decent, then there remains only one alternative for the honest man: stay home, cultivate your own garden, look to the mountains (Withdraw! Withdraw! Withdraw!)” Eward Abbey May 28, 1959, Albuquerque, NM
