Government is Violence

Timothy Birdnow

Government is force applied to the individual to compel obedience according to tthe direction of the rulers of the government. The benefits it gives are at the expense of some and are always the lowest common denominator in how things will be handled because there can be no finesse or subtlety where brute force is the key to the whole operation.

The Mafia is basically a government too, but one that acts at odds to the society at large.

Governments operate no differently, just they usually have a veneer of benefit to the society at large and people look to them as if they were some sort of demigod. It's a violation of the First Commandment, frankly.

And don't kid yourself; the Left always knew that. Read Rouseau's The Social Contract. He speaks about the Collective Will as the new god and the State as the new Church.

"It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes.

If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus.”

- Murray Rothbard, "Power and Market”

1 I agree totally, Tim.

2 It's why we should all advocate for a very limited government, as limited as we can get away with. You have to surrender freedom and civil rights to government in exchange for the "protections" they offer. We are all willing to surrender some freedoms for some protection, primarily military and criminal, because we cannot be our own army and police very easily. But every time we create some new government program we create a new mechanism for stripping away rights and freedoms. Then you reach a point where you surrender all liberties for the false security of the nanny state.

Ben Franklyn warned about that.

3 I'm not sure that Ben Franklin was aware of the idea of the bureaucracy, which is what has taken over our government.

4 I would think he would have understood bureaucracy Dana; the Brits certainly had enough of it as did the French. But he couldn't have forseen it completely taking over the whole government like it has.
