“The Anarchists are right in everything; in the negation of the existing order, and in the assertion that, without authority, there could not be worse violence than that of authority under existing conditions. They are mistaken only in thinking that Anarchy can be instituted by a revolution. “To establish Anarchy.” “Anarchy will be instituted.” But it will be instituted only by there being more and more people who do not require protection from governmental power, and by there being more and more people who will be ashamed of applying this power.” – Leo Tolstoy “On Anarchy”, in Pamphlets : Translated from the Russian (1900) as translated by Aylmer Maude, p. 22
For those who ignorantly believe they are “US Citizens”, election day is right around the corner. People are increasingly talking and arguing politics, trying to get people to vote for “their” candidate who promises to fix everything…Just like the same politicians they voted for 4 years ago. People seriously believe that government, despite all of the historical examples (past and present) of how its very existence creates war, poverty, economic inequality, etc., is still part of the solution. Government is only “bad” because the wrong type of people are running it. This feeling stems from the belief that government = We The People. But that belief is a farce, as it is wholly untrue.
The United States Government, and all global governments and nation states, are corporations. In law, any time you see an entity appear in ALL CAPS, for all practical purposes, it is a corporation, a fictitious entity that only exists on paper. It’s purpose, is to allow the sale, transfer, and ownership of assets, enabling Government to track and control all matters of life. People, 7+ billion, have been deceived into allowing the presumption that they, individually, are corporations as well! Don’t believe me? Pull out any form of identification. It doesn’t matter what country. Your name on all forms of Government issued identification, always, ALWAYS appears in ALL CAPS.
Still don’t believe me? Think about this: Why did the Supreme Court of the United States rule, in Citizens United v. FEC, that corporations ARE people, and thus, have the same right to contribute to election campaigns? It’s because (drum roll) corporations ARE people, and people ARE corporations.
Why is this important? When a real person engages in contracts with government (social programs, government ID, etc) one must consent to being treated as a “Citizen”, thus allowing the presumption that they are their fictitious corporate entity. A “citizen” is a legal subject of the government or nation state it is domiciled in. For all practical and legal purposes, citizens are legally inferior to government. The lies force fed about the founding of the United States and it paving the way for the spread of “freedom” around the world are just that: lies. The founding of America simply allowed a new paradigm of control to emerge. From kings and queens, to rulers wearing suits and ties.
Why do we need government? The money government uses for “the good” it allegedly does is provided by “We the people.” Considering government is arguably the most irresponsible, inefficient, wasteful entity on Earth, how does cutting out the middle man worsen our condition?
Anarchy is, in this author’s opinion, the next step in the evolution of human consciousness. The beauty of anarchy is that it starts at the individual level. Ultimately the only person you can control is yourself. By taking full responsibility and ownership over your life and actions, you make it easier for others to do the same.
If government directly and indirectly creates or exacerbates all problems in the world, by definition, a world free of government could be no worse. The only way this occurs, however, is like the quote above says: it will never be achieved by force, but rather, non-violently as more and more people withdraw their consent.
Says it plain as day in second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
You must CONSENT to government. What do you think that November ballot is? By voting, you perpetuate the very system that enslaves you.
