If Ever There Were a Time for a Stateless Society, This Is It!

Gary D. Barnett

“How I wished during those sleepless hours that I belonged to a different nation, or better still, to none at all.” ~ Winfried Georg Sebald, “Vertigo” 1990

Why is it that mankind believes and practices the insanity of government and rule, and allows people they ‘believe’ to be like them to be their lord and master? Why do Americans that grew up believing in freedom think that they cannot survive unless they serve under a dominant tyrannical governing system? Is it that all men except those voluntarily chosen to hold political office are completely stupid, corrupt, and villainous, and cannot function without an emperor or president to control them? Is it that they have been taught to believe that they do not have the power to defend themselves, but if they choose a claimed ‘leader’ and give him power over them, that he will protect them? Is it because they have been fooled into believing these lies, and have forever lived as an oppressed society without knowing the real truth? Or is it that the masses understand that the spectre of government allows them to gain for themselves by using a proxy strongman to plunder and steal from their neighbors so that they can benefit from that armed robbery?…
