What's hiding beneath?

Statism has a thin, shiny scale of pretty-looking ethics hiding the evil beneath. It's sort of like nail polish on an infected, fungal fingernail.

Some statism shows its concern for the less fortunate while hiding its approval of theft. Other statism shows the world its concern for "family values" while hiding its family-destroying policies from casual view. And, the ethics don't hide just one evil, but a huge library of evils. All excused by the thin superficial layer of goodness.

The nice-looking ethics are good, but they stop short. They don't go far enough and don't redeem the evil that exists right beside them. It doesn't make you a good person to give the shirt off your back to one person while raping and murdering another.

All the aggression and theft is just below the surface, while the pretty, distracting scale of ethics hides it from view. But it only hides the corruption and evil from those who don't want to look.

The ethics embraced by any form of statism are only surface deep, used for less than ethical purposes, but the evil goes all the way to the core.

  1. That is what the old literary adage, a “cloak of respectability” was describing. A pretty fabric of superficial veneer wrapped around a core of expedient violence, theft and murder with the intent of deceit and disguise. Not by appearance, but by their deeds shall you know them.

    1. They dress themselves in the cloak of respectability and the veil of legitimacy. It's all just the Emperor's New Clothes to me.

  2. Knowledge such as that is precisely the reason statists are so afraid of anyone with a classical education, especially anyone posessed of a classical educatioin, and disagreeing with their diseased, delusional view of reality.
