A cette préoccupation de la défense des particuliers contre les malfaiteurs, s’ajoute une préoccupation politique. Les gouvernements auraient constamment à se défendre par la force, si les factions politiques, qui préfèrent à la voie légale trop lente à leur gré, celle des armes, pouvaient librement fabriquer, entreposer, détenir celles-ci et s’en munir, quand bon leur semblerait. Aussi voyons-nous la législation due le port d’armes osciller entre le libéralisme et la sévérité, selon les époque calmes ou troublées.

Il Governo inoltre dovrebbe promuovere e favorire la costituzione di quelle benemerite associazioni private, che ànno per iscopo di concorrere con la polizia nella lotta contro la delinquenza.

Vincenzo Manzini

1910 - Italian private associations against crime

El Somatén es la Paz: pero que debe estar dispuesto para la guerra cuando ésta es justa y legitima, porque la sangre que así se derrama es el mejor riego para el árbol de la civilización.

Paz y tregua

1913 - El Somatén Armado de Cataluña

Le Pattuglie cittadine, “sorsero ed operarono quasi sempre senza esplicita autorizzazione governativa per supplire alla insufficienza della Forza pubblica di fronte al dilagare della delinquenza e del teppismo o ad incomposte agitazioni popolari, ma si mantennero sempre nella legalità costituendosi in Corpo armato, sciogliendosi e ricostituendosi secondo le esigenze dei vari momenti e confortate dal tacito consenso degli organi statali”

Ettore Vulterini

1922 - Arditi comunisti e Squadre d’azione fasciste

El trabajo requiere que se mantenga la normalidad pública, para su adecuando desenvolvimiento, y por otra parte es un factor importantísimo que por medio del ahorro contribuye á la creación de la propiedad individual: de aquí que la seguridad de las personas y la defensa de la propiedad, sean los objetos característicos de la misión que vienen á llenar los Somatenes.
