Government is bad. Now please applaud my intellect.
Then why does every society have one?
What does a place without goverment look like?
Is it just wild tribe of natives? running around inside of a forrest or on some small island.
Are things that much better there?
We tend to group up, in large clusters.
Without goverment, we cant funktion once that happends.
Yeah I was being sarcastic. BUT to answer your question... and speaking only as an American .. Madison wrote the constitution and the Rebels adopted it because rule of law is necessary! Being that he and the Rebels knew that governments become corrupt (it’s inevitable in all cases) they agreed to a constitution that put government in bondage.
The US Federal government has limited authority. Congress’s authority is enumerated. Find it here https://www.thoughtco.com/constitution-article-i-section-8-3322343
The US Federal Government used Prohibition, the creation of the Federal Reserve, War on Drugs, and War on Terror - to unchain itself from constitutional bondage. Killing over seas and exploiting foreign resources is common now, Imprisoning 25% of its own population for victimless crimes is common now, 30 years of indentured servitude to own a home is common now.
There were no Federal Taxes for 100 years after our revolution. Federal Funding came from tariffs. Each State taxed and policed itself. Land was Individually occupied and used which gave property rights to the family Improving on it. Just like the Natives method of land ownership.
what did the US look like with this lawlessness? It was the “Old West”. Manners were the difference between life and death. Bandits were in and out so community stood up for each other’s safety. It was a hard life — it’s arguably harder now that now that so many are dependent on low wages to scratch at a living.
Now there’s homeless, drug addicted, over crowded streets. There’s so many laws that we each break at least one a day and either don’t know or don’t care. Until we get caught. Then we get extorted for hundreds of dollars. Which is fine if you’re wealthy. But most of us aren’t. A fine can ruin your whole year. It’s become a classist system.
Im not against the way things are. I’m getting by ok. But I would like to find land no one is using and improve on it and call it mine. I would like to police myself. I would like to rely on community to create my safety. I would like to set free all people convicted of victimless crimes. I’d like to stop the killing of foreign families and Stop exploitation of foreign resources. In the mean while, I’ll happily enjoy my modern conveniences and simply abstain from voting for the duopoly.
Too much Government is an awful thing. Some Government is necessary! Socialist economy, where company ownership is shared amongst the workers is the awesomest idea. However a socialist government is too much government. Socialist government provides everything and to do so it takes everything. That strips independence and creates pure dependence. And anything it gives it can also take away.
True happiness comes from independence. Ask anyone who has no choice but to submit.
