But, Without Government, Who Would Institutionalize Systemic Injustice?

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by an acquaintance from hereand originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"American Injustice: Authorities uncovered that Wachovia bank laundered $378.4 billion for a Mexican drug cartel. The bank was fined just $50 million (2% of its profits) and no one went to jail. But, we lock up kids over a dime bag of pot. Let that sink in."

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Voluntary Virtues Network,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"There should be a draft where every young person has to do one year of something - military, public works - something so that we feel invested in the same game, because that's the part we've lost." - John Stewart ""We should extort money from people and pay men with guns to force people to do arbitrary, and sometimes criminal things, for at least a year. That way, we'd all feel united as slaves." - Translation, by Jeff Berwick

My Commentary: Never forget that, in the end, every law is enforced at gunpoint, and under threat of abduction and imprisonment. So, please stop suggesting the use of State violence against peaceful people in your hopelessly naive, pathetically misguided attempt to “help.”

Think volunteer public service is a good idea? Cool! Then, get off your ass, and get to work! Try leading by example, and stop stooping to coercion!
