Statists helping anarchism

On "social media" I constantly witness (and sometimes endure) jabs from statists who are trying to ridicule the passion (and rationality) for Rightful Liberty.

It doesn't really bother me when "conservatives" or "liberals" try to belittle liberty lovers.

I'm happy that they are that willing to make fools of themselves without anyone else even lifting a finger to help. It's nice when your enemies do all the work for you.

Sometimes instead of mainly trying to jab, they instead spend their effort making "reasonable-sounding" statist claims that don't stand up to scrutiny.

I am especially amused by the reasonable-sounding "conservatives" whose objections fall apart if you actually examine them beyond the most superficial glimpse. They claim anarchy is "Utopian", and that their beliefs reflect the "real world" while insisting that "good government" is possible, in spite of the entirety of human history as evidence against that notion. Seriously, I sometimes wonder if some of them are anarchist trolls setting up fake accounts to caricature "conservatives" and make them look foolish.

I should get into a habit of thanking them, but then they might shut up and stop discrediting their superstition.



  1. The "real world" means that Americans hate freedom. They want a babysitter.

    1. They don't just hate freedom. They're scared to death of it.

  2. One of my facebook friends posted a meme about the "right to work" legislation having the sole purpose of breaking up unions and allowing businesses to lower pay and benefits to workers.

    I asked her "Do you think it's fair to compel people to join unions?"

    And she unequivocally replied "Yes"

    Now, my friend and I are not americans, so we dont really have a dog in that fight... but even the statists in the Great White north are convinced that without legislation and regulation, people would be forced to accept menial jobs for no pay, indentured servitude, and chain/chattel slavery would ensue.

    It's revolting.

    And so even though I'm not in favor of any legislation or political action to promote the "right to work", I find myself in disagreement with my statist friend...

    1. I worked in a "right to work" state for a while. The state charged me a "right to work" fee. LOL! The bullies hit you from all sides.

    1. I try not to. But I sometimes slip and call them "stupid".
