- Our Purpose
Liberty enters the field of journalism to speak for herself because she
finds no one willing to speak for her. She hears no voice that always
champions her; she knows no pen that always writes in her defence; she sees
no hand that is always lifted to avenge her wrongs or vindicate her rights.
Many claim to speak in her name, but few really understand her. Still fewer
have the courage and the opportunity to consistently fight for her. Her
battle, then, is her own to wage and win. She accepts it fearlessly, and
with a determined spirit.
- Benjamin R. Tucker, Liberty, August 6, 1881.
