Why is it OK to hate rapists, but not government? After all, government, by which I mean The State, rapes, murders, kidnaps, steals, etc. on a scale that dwarfs all the similar deeds done by all the freelance bad guys throughout all of human history. Yet, one isn't allowed to admit to a hatred of this gigantic evil? That's insane.
I have said before that I don't hate "the government"; I love liberty. Government just happens to be the opposite of liberty. Government isn't important enough to hate. I do hate almost everything that is done in the name of government. And I will never come down on someone who admits they HATE government; I'll just hope they are consistent in that hatred and don't change their mind when "their guy" is in power.
