As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following quote, being shared by an acquaintance, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…
“Anarchists relationship with the state is akin to an arranged marriage. We didn’t want any part of it, yet here we are. Even worse, our spouse is the fat, Neanderthalic, useless, abusive dirtbag who chases brown kids off the lawn with a broom. Unfortunately we can’t run because they can find us anywhere, can access our bank account and have superior firepower.
This is why we cheat every chance we get with that sexy mistress known as freedom. Any creative way to circumvent the rules of this relationship are as euphoric as the blossoming of a new love affair after years of misery, and we will continue to do so until we eventually find a way to get rid of it once and for all.
Statists are the ones with Stockholm syndrome that embrace this relationship. Just like many victims, they don’t want to listen to our advice because they’re comfortable and complacent. These are the friends we generally avoid because we dislike their spouse.
Libertarianism is simply the spouse loving you back but still not allowing you to leave the house unsupervised.
That’s why it’s said ‘Anarchy is for lovers’. ”
