Albert Jay Nock was not a reformer and found offensive any society with a “monstrous itch for changing people.”….The only thing we can do to improve society, he declared, “is to present society with one improved unit.” Let each person direct his efforts at himself or herself, not others…

I can think of at least one academic who would accuse A.J. Nock of hypocrisy; by his instructing of others not to impose, he was imposing on them!
