Doublethink is the Only Real Way to Accept “Authority” of the State as Legitimate

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “The Art of Not Being Governed,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"The Rise of the Warlords: The claim 'warlords would take over' is baseless speculation without an explanation of how they would manage such a feat.With no government to gain control of, and no ban on weapons, leaving people defenseless, how would one individual manage to subjugate a whole society?Any potential warlord is massively outnumbered and massively outgunned. The only way for a warlord to control a society is if the majority of people want to be subjugated. This is how states formed and why they exist today."
