The following debate originally took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artworkbeing shared by the page, “AnarchoChristian”…
“Liberals: Cops are shooting black people based on race. Also Liberals: Only cops should have guns. Republicans: Don’t question cops when they use force. Also Republicans: The 2nd Amendment is because we can’t trust the government”
Sam B.: You’re right. The cop shouldn’t have a gun either.
Rayn: But… without an army of domestic terrorists, funded by victim extortion, and operating under color of law, how exactly do you expect to disarm an entire population of innocent, peaceful human beings?
My Commentary: If government derives its power from “the people,” then they can only do those things which “the people” have the right to do… “The people” cannot delegate to the government rights which they do not have. This is bullet-proof logic, and yet, for the Statist, it simply does not compute, because they cannot accept the cold, hard truth that NO ONE HAS A RIGHT TO STEAL, OR INITIATE VIOLENCE against others…
“Understand then all of you, especially the young, that to want to impose an imaginary state of government on others by violence is not only a vulgar superstition, but even a criminal work. Understand that this work, far from assuring the well-being of humanity is only a lie, a more or less unconscious hypocrisy, camouflaging the lowest passions we possess.”
– Leo Tolstoy, “The Law of Love and the Law of Violence” (1908)
As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artworkhere, being shared by the page, “Government Does Not Exist,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“You don’t like it? Then, move to another plantation!”
My Commentary: The “logic” of the average Statist… has all of the depth and consistency of a puddle.
