2. Once you start making assertions that your claims are factual, we are definitely going to ask for evidence or examples.
which 'claims' aren't 'factual'?
'government'/'authority' can't exist, that is a fact, 'government' injects more immorallity into society, that is also a very clear fact.
'government' can't have more power then people have, also a fact.
So, you must be also religiously attached to the idea of a 'government' then.
Oj, well first I am not trying to persuade anyone.
And oh! You haven't read this whole thread yet, I see.
1. No one never said that government was perfect. etc.
3. With that being said, government is still very important and very essential to our everyday lives.
There is a common assumption that without government modern civilization would crumble. Many people assume that anarchism is a kind of disorganized spontaneity.
This is the reverse of the truth. Anarchists actually want much more organization, though organization without authority. The prejudice about anarchism derives from a prejudice about organization; people cannot see that organization does not depend on authority, that it actually works best without authority.
To be governed is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, censored, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown it all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonoured. That is government; that is its justice, that is its morality
1. If that were true, you would simply tell the many people who have been disagreeing with you, that we must agree to disagree, and then leave it at that.
Belgium has managed without a government for 461 days. Its economy is surviving and it has taken part in the Libya campaign. So do we really need a government?
With no government to impose austerity measures, it might come as a surprise that Belgium has not yet suffered a debt crisis, like Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, even though its debts equal 97 per cent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
Prof. Edward Stringham argues that government may not even be necessary at all.
Should government provide law enforcement? Most would argue that government is absolutely necessary for law enforcement. Prof. Edward Stringhman, however, argues that government may not even be necessary at all.
To come to this conclusion, Prof. Stringham asks a few important questions. First, if something is really important, does it logically follow that government should provide it? Second, are markets capable of providing law enforcement and security in the modern world? Third, how are disputes currently settled between people of different countries?
Looking at the first question, it doesn’t seem to be the case that important things must be provided by a government. For instance, think about food. Food is necessary for life, and yet, markets do an excellent job of providing food to consumers.
Even if you’re convinced that markets can provide important things, you may think law enforcement and security are a special case that markets are incapable of providing in a modern world. However, markets already enforce private rules and provide security. Disney World, Las Vegas, and malls all have private rules that are enforced by private security.
Accepting the arguments above, you may still be skeptical about market’s abilities to settle disputes between different systems of rules or law. This, in fact, was Ayn Rand’s primary reason for advocating a minimal state. Current interactions in the real world provide examples as to how markets resolve these disputes. Think about an international soccer game or international trade. In both instances, individuals are interacting across state boundaries, and are only subject to the jurisdiction of their own territory. In these situations, these individuals contract with the arbiters such as a soccer league or a private court to resolve disputes.
look at the outcomes of the covid-hoax-crises.
