“You have the emergence in human society of this thing that’s called the State. What is the State? The State is this organized bureaucracy. It is the police department. It is the Army, the Navy. It is the prison system, the courts, and what have you. This is the State — it is a repressive organization.

But the state — ‘gee, well, you know, you’ve got to have the police, cause if there were no police, look at what you’d be doing to yourselves! You’d be killing each other if there were no police!’

But the reality is..the police become necessary in human society only at that junction in human society where it is split between those who have and those who ain’t got.”

— Omali Yeshitela
Chairman, African People’s Socialist Party
