Voltairine de Cleyre
Voltairine de Cleyre (1866 â€” 1912) was an American anarchist / feminist writer and theorist. She is the person who, in response to U.S. Senator Joseph R. HawleyÊ¼s offer of $1000 to have a shot at an anarchist, said:
â€œYou may, by merely paying your carfare to my home, shoot at me for nothing â€” but if payment of the $1000 is a necessary part of your proposition, then when I have given you the shot, I will give the money to the propaganda of the idea of a free society in which there shall be neither assassins nor presidents, beggars nor senators.â€
