“Coercion is the central principle of all government”

“Coercion is the central principle of all government” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
 
“Coercion is the central principle of government . -LORD ARMSTRONG” was printed in The University Libertarian (1955). “Lord Armstrong Coercion is the central principle of government.—quoted by Bool and Carlyle in For Liberty” was printed in The Heretic’s Handbook of Quotations: Cutting Comments on Burning Issues (1992), edited by Charles Bufe. “Coercion is the central principle of government.-Lord Armstrong” was printed in Cosmic Trigger II: Down to Earth (1996) by Robert Anton Wilson. It’s not known when William George Armstrong, 1st Baron Armstrong (1810-1900) said this.
 
The word “all” is added on a meme. “Photo: libertarian propaganda goes mainstream hip. very stupid slogan. coercion is the central principle of… http://tumblr.com/xsu27e2gb3” (“COERCION IS THE CENTRAL PRINCIPLE OF ALL GOVERNMENT” is shown on an image) was posted on X/Twitter by dagwolf on April 21, 2011. “Coercion is the central principle of all government”  (“COERCION IS THE CENTRAL PRINCIPLE OF ALL GOVERNMENT” is shown on an image) was posted on X/Twitter by ѕyndιcalιѕт on June 28, 2013.
 
“Coercion is not consent” is another popular “coercion” saying.
