A Quote by Joseph de Maistre on authority, chaos, order, power, society, and world

All grandeur, all power, all subordination to authority rests on the executioner: he is the horror and the bond of human association. Remove this incomprehensible agent from the world and at that very moment order gives way to chaos, thrones topple and society disappears.

Joseph de Maistre (1753 - 1821)
