The Haunted House

Suppose you are considering a house to purchase. You are warned by a helpful busybody that the house is "haunted". If you don't believe in ghosts, what do you care? That which doesn't exist can't harm you, after all. Granted, those who do believe in ghosts could harm you, either by charlatanism or by over-reacting to their own overactive imaginations. The well-meaning believers, or people who wish to separate you from your money, can cause you harm using the "ghosts" as an excuse.

Government is the same. It doesn't really exist except in the minds of those who believe in it. It can not harm you, but its "fan club" certainly can. Stop believing in it, keep a suspicious eye on those who believe in it or work for it, and stop letting it rule your life.
