A Quote by Count Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoi or Tolstoy on government, violence, and state

In former times the chief method of justifying the use of violence and thereby infringing the law of love was by claiming a divine right for the rulers: the Tsars, Sultans, Rajahs, Shahs and other heads of states.

Leo Tolstoy (1828 - 1910)
