Enough problems without government

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for September 5, 2018)

If you build a house in certain neighborhoods in Hawaii, you run the risk of having your house swallowed by lava. Along most coasts, hurricanes and tsunamis are looming dangers. In mountains, avalanches and landslides are seasonal threats. If you choose to build in Moore, Oklahoma, remember that tornadoes seem to enjoy the local scenery, and build below ground.

Pick your spot, then deal with the risks which come with it.

Unfortunately, no matter where you choose to live on this planet, political government-- imposed on you by a ruling class or by your friends, family, and neighbors-- is a constant threat to your life, liberty, and the rest...

Thank you for helping support


  1. leeches, parasites. need a vigorous healthy host to infest to support them.
    bad for the host. vital for the leeches, parasites.

  2. re this: "The government buildings (and the employees who inhabit them) are things the believers will point to as proof of government’s reality, yet those physical things are nothing more than idols built to the idea — concrete monuments to a figment of the imagination."

    I'd say a more precise view of government is that it isn't quite a figment of the imagination - we have had a more or less unbroken string of people, backed up by weaponry, ordering us around and stealing from us and throwing us in cages, and there are documents stating their desire to continue to do so and laying out a plan of action to accomplish that. So that's real. And calling this ongoing organized crime gang the "government" is a shorthand that people unfortunately have been brainwashed into not unpacking. Brevity is great, but not at the expense of clarity or reality.

    And the government buildings aren't so much monuments as places to house this ongoing group of parasites.
