Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

Power is indeed of the essence of all government, but violence is not.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

No government exclusively based on the means of violence has ever existed… Only the development of robot soldiers… could change this fundamental ascendancy of power over violence.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

The extreme form of power is All against One, the extreme form of violence is One against All. And this latter is never possible without instruments.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt
