"Coexist" doesn't mean you get to kill me

I can coexist with those who worship flags; who parrot "patriotic" utterances; who pretend a State can be anything other than a massive mafia.

Life is what it is.

What bothers me is that those people aren't honest about what they are supporting.  They pretend they are The Good, and everyone else is The Evil.  They pretend their favorite flavor of socialism, fascism, tyranny, and mass murder is none of the above.

Or, they are cryptostatists and pretend they aren't supporting statism at all, when they are.

Either way, I could let them go their own way if only they'd stop trying to force me to go along with them, and pretend that they aren't full of ... "humbug".

But that isn't the Way of the Statist.  Misery loves company, and rabid statists hate to see anyone who isn't under the same delusions they enjoy.  Their slavism is too wonderful to not be "shared"- with force.  Funny, but if you have to force someone to join you, perhaps your path isn't as superior as you pretend.

I wouldn't force you to be free even if I could, but refusing to allow you to feed off of me isn't "forcing" you to do anything.

Statists wish to be left to the wolves, whom they see as their protectors.  I simply don't wish to let them drag me along.  Not without trying to defend myself.  And, that, to a statist, is unforgivable.



  1. Well said Kent. The statist excuse is typically that we anti-statists are idealistic, impractical and/or don’t live in the “real-world”. So, therefore, it is acceptable to treat us like children or mental patients who are a danger to ourselves and society.

  2. A perfect example of this is the charge of "resisting arrest", or the excuse for beating someone to within an inch of their life because they didn't instantly obey an "officer".

    Simply asking why will get a person thrown to the ground, trampled, cuffed and charged with resisting arrest and "disorderly conduct".

    And it's not the fact that it happens all the time that is the indication of statism. It's that the number of people appalled by this is so low.

    Such abuse should be being decried by everyone. But no, the statists make the assumption that the cops are good first. An insidious form of statism.

  3. My, my Hawk and Mark and Curt. Are you gentlemen trying to convince me that two imposing upon one is NOT "justice"?

    Who'da thunk it.
