Show synopsis From the far reaches of the human mind, come these tales of unrestrained, anti-authoritarianism. No government, no leaders, no authority, no rules, and complete freedom of action! Egoism, solipsism, anarchism, and other heresies -- now revealed to corrupt your mind!!! Clarence Darrow is best known for defending the right to teach evolution in "the Scopes trial". Not so well-known is his lifetime of service on behalf of victims of government persecution. In Resist Not Evil, Darrow presents a convincing case for abolishing the criminal justice system. Darrow argues that neither punishment nor prison reduce the crime rate, and the only reason for them is vengeance and cruelty. He points out that most crimes are committed against property by people who have been shut out of the economic system. This reprint of Darrow's controversial assay could not be more timely, his ideas have lost none of their fire or relevance.
