    Yeahhhh… We always have these super-serious depictions of anarchy like GASP someone wants to abolish the government. I mean look at this guy’s face.

    Do you know how many tax laws there are on the books? Do you know how many laws there are, about stupid things that human beings could realistically solve themselves? Every election, we have government trying more and more to completely control the lives of people. Democrats/socialists want a screwy overtax system that everyone chips in so people are all on welfare. Republicans want a moralistic “religious” fringe government. Both of these models are extremely dogmatic, and incredibly extremist.
    The actual best thing we could do is have a government based on the original rules of US law, and do away with the leaders.

      Actually, the most accurate description I know of is the one Larken Rose provides in his book, “The Most Dangerous Superstition.”. There is a small group of humans, many of whom are psychopaths, who do their best to control their country or the whole world. They hire those who don’t know better, buy them uniforms and make up laws to fool those who don’t know better into paying for those uniforms out of some carefully constructed sense of moral obligation. They do all kinds of other horrible things too with the money they steal in this way. That is why I am so thankful for Peter Hendrickson.

      The best we can do is NOT to have a group of such people in any position whatsoever from which they can continue in this travesty of humanity. I grew up, developed my conscience, and am now working on helping others do the same. Most people have it in themselves to distinguish right from wrong and follow their conscience and thereby participate in our progress toward further improvements of the human experience. Sadly, most are also damaged and brainwashed and deceived into avoiding that kind of beautiful endeavor. The best we can do is to help them heal from such wounds by exemplifying high moral standards ourselves. Be a voluntaryist.

        Psychopaths enjoy creating a type of chaos which lauds them up into the spotlight as being the only one capable of solving it all; with the masses wailing,”Oh thank you, Savior!” If one were to describe our government, with all of its bureaucratic departments, one would notice that if it were simplified, it would be a heck of a lot easier to root out those who oppose efficiency and total progress, not merely THEIR progress.

        Quick segue – Psychopaths are everywhere, and their existence is something we have to be aware of, not something to police or regulate … isn’t that the whole point of this site?

        To Sam Rinne Hooker, who you replied to above, I wrote that the best thing that our government could do for all of us is to be able to guarantee constitutional, as well as, human rights to us …

        Imagine the decrease (from the bottom to the top of societal issues) in mental health crises, domestic violence calls, wage slavery, mass shootings, incarcerations, unemployment, government corruption … tons of different things. Not to come off as wholly idealistic, but those are exactly the sorts of things that we’d conquer if our government merely did its duty to its citizens.

        We live in an age where the word ‘Accountability’ is thrown around like it no longer means ‘A Lack of Responsibility’. When people have a responsibility and they don’t fulfill their duty to that responsibility, that is when they’re held accountable … So, the premise that holding people accountable is the first “go to” is a line of rhetoric which seeks to presume guilt and incompetence from the get-go. It’s rhetoric like that which keeps us all down, and keeps Liberty a mere notion and not a state of reality for all of us, not the work of a couple of psychopaths in high employ.

        Don’t focus on the chaos. Don’t let chaos creators sidetrack you away from the fact that our rights must be guaranteed. Everything else aside from that is meaningless to discuss until we establish and practice that.

      I think that the best thing that our government could do for us is to be able to guarantee, absolutely, not only Constitutional Rights to American citizens, but also, basic Human Rights to any humans in this country.
