- The mercantilist policies favored by Trump clearly show that he wants to make England great again.
- Republicans: Nothing says “free market” like removing the competition by force.
- When you “vote for the anti-establishment,” and they win, they become the establishment.
- Republicans are saying Trump isn’t a politician, but he is now that they have made him one.
- Politicians and corporate elite tend to stick together. I highly doubt Trump, or anyone else, is going to arrest any politicians. They long ago mastered the art of propaganda, and hardly ever do they sacrifice one of their own. They don’t need to. No matter how corrupt, “the people” don’t ever actually do anything besides “vote.” It might happen, but highly unlikely.
- Citing one politician’s crimes does not abdicate another politician of theirs. It’s one thing to point out the hypocrisy of the Democrats, it’s another to be a blind sheep who believes two wrongs make a right.
- Anarchy contains elements of both “chaos” and “order.”
It’s not a guarantee “chaos won’t happen.” It’s no a guarantee that people won’t be oppressed. Robbing people is not consistent with anarchism as a philosophy, but it doesn’t “stop anarchy” or mean “anarchy doesn’t exist.”
- I think it’s pretty creepy to have kids reciting allegiance pledges to “Government” regalia.
At least lots of so-called “illegals” actually work, while politicians stand around signing papers about how you have to live your life.
- When it comes to “taxation,” “regulation,” and indeed, “immigration control,”
The real question is does the state have the RIGHT to 1. charge compulsory dues 2. kick you off for not paying for things you never asked for, i.e. “tax.” If the answer is yes, then you are NOT the rightful owner. If the answer is no (which is my answer) then the State is a thief (which it is).
- Republicans by and large seem to have forgotten the real problem of the welfare state, and have been strung along to support these fascist blights on the face of individual liberty known as “tariffs” and “immigration control.”
- Republicans spent 8 years rambling on about how government is tyrannical, and now they worship it just the same, even as it’s increasing it’s control. They have a renewed faith in Democracy.
- After all the hype, you might think Trump would try to bring charges against Obama for violating the “U.S. Constitution,” human rights, etc., but the Republicans possess very short attention spans and have already moved on to committing their own crimes.
- “Libertarians” and “Minarchists” can be the worst.
At least “democrats” and such start off believing “Government” is a great thing, inherently legitimate, etc. “Minarchists” spend most of their time railing against “Government,” then turn around and support it anyway.
Anarchists believe that the initiation of force is illegitimate.
No one has the right to use/threaten force in situations where initial force or fraud has not been used.
Government/”law” IS force, backed by force, etc.
Every “law” which threatens force on people who have not themselves threatened force or committed fraud is illegitimate.
“Drug laws” are an easy example of this, but it goes all the way to down “taxation” itself, which is the threat of force to compel people to pay for ‘Government’ even if they do not want or use it.
Government, as it is based on the initiation of force, is inherently illegitimate.
- State worshipers often say that large organizations are not possible without the government. Well, then I guess we don’t have to worry about anyone or any group getting too powerful and taking over.Their claim is actually false, but the inconsistency of their logic is the point here.
- Anarchy is not actually an option.
An option implies there is another choice, but there isn’t.
Anarchy is inescapable.
- To “govern” is to rule, to rule is to control, so who “governs” you?
- Anarchism as a philosophy is not the same thing as anarchy.
Whether an individual adheres to anarchism as a philosophy or not does not change that we exist in a state of perpetual anarchy, i.e. nothing is controlling “society,” there is no “rightful ruler,” etc.
- The problem is not “power,” or the literal physical ability to coerce, though that can be problematic. Perceived legitimacy is actually the entirety of the problem. “Government” is just the hallucination that violence is legitimate when “some people” do it, based on their belief in Authority. Without this belief States would not become so “powerful” to begin with.
- What’s the worst thing that could happen “in Anarchy?” A holocaust? Some gang trying to control you, like “Government?”
- You do not need legislation to have rights.
You do not need legislation to enforce your rights.
Legislation does not alter rights, or morality, etc.
It is irrelevant aside from the case where “legislation” conflicts with rights, which it does inherently, as it implies it can by nature of the concept.
- Nobody “governs” you but you. Nobody possibly could.
Even if a person threatens another with violence and demands they obey, as the people in “Government” and other crooks do, there is a choice. Statists and other “authority” worshipers choose to obey because they believe in “authority.”
You have a choice, too, and you’re the only one who can make it.
- Every single statist wants the state to protect them. They see defense as extremely important, I’m sure.
Every single statist who thinks they support free markets says they are against violence and monopolies.
Every single statist supports a violent monopoly in defense, and claims it’s the only way there can be “civilization.”
- Taxation is theft because
1. The state does not own all the land in the “borders,” therefore has no right to dictate compulsory dues
2. They dictate compulsory… dues anyway, and take regardless of consent or usage. State advocates speak as if “high taxes” are theft, when the quantity is irrelevant to whether or not it’s theft. Do you call the firm with the higher priced commodity a thief? Of course not, because they don’t demand you buy and take regardless of your consent, like the state does. Do you say a person isn’t a thief if he only takes 50 cents without your consent? Furthermore, they speak as if their usage of state “services” has anything to do with taxes outside of propaganda. The state demands you pay before any services even exist to use, and continues to demand even if you don’t actually use it, e.g. “public school,” etc.
- The majority doesn’t vote, but these politicians won’t leave us alone.
- Voting isn’t actually a violation of the nap in reality, it’s just a superstitious cult ritual which results in people lining up and pushing buttons. Voters don’t actually threaten or do violence “in the world” unless they’re cops.
- Communists want to eat your cake and have it, too.
