It works.

First it was Russell Mokhiber, now it is the human rat himself: David Weigel. He somehow confuses lewrockwell.com as being a conservative site. But then again, this is the same moron that thinks Bob Barr is a libertarian.

Why in the world would these people insist that libertarianism is in any way associated with the “far-right” when it is obvious that, if anything, it is on the extreme opposite end of the spectrum? That is, if you are only capable of conceptualizing in one dimension.

Anarchy in America is an exciting story about how the fight for freedom could play out. Not only does it show how good intentions enable evil when carried out through coercion, but It points to a new paradigm of liberty. By setting the stories in a time of crisis and chaos to allow for maximum conflict and drama, we also show how freedom can be built peacefully, even in the midst of chaos, and bring order to the community.

Although I strongly disagree with this video’s assessment of anarchy, it does a good job of explaining why democracy is pure evil. Taken to its logical conclusion, no government is the only answer.

To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wisdom nor the virtue to do so.

To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished.

It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored.

That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality

Butler Shaffer writes:

I am often asked if anarchy has ever existed in our world, to which I answer: almost all of your daily behavior is an anarchistic expression. How you deal with your neighbors, coworkers, fellow customers in shopping malls or grocery stores, is often determined by subtle processes of negotiation and cooperation. Social pressures, unrelated to statutory enactments, influence our behavior on crowded freeways or grocery checkout lines. If we dealt with our colleagues at work in the same coercive and threatening manner by which the state insists on dealing with us, our employment would be immediately terminated. We would soon be without friends were we to demand that they adhere to specific behavioral standards that we had mandated for their lives.

Should you come over to our home for a visit, you will not be taxed, searched, required to show a passport or driver’s license, fined, jailed, threatened, handcuffed, or prohibited from leaving. I suspect that your relationships with your friends are conducted on the same basis of mutual respect. In short, virtually all of our dealings with friends and strangers alike are grounded in practices that are peaceful, voluntary, and devoid of coercion.

Shaffer also points out:

Those who condemn anarchy should engage in some quantitative analysis. In the twentieth century alone, governments managed to kill – through wars, genocides, and other deadly practices – some 200,000,000 men, women, and children. How many people were killed by anarchists during this period? Governments, not anarchists, have been the deadly “bomb-throwers” of human history!

Yet society places a negative connotation on the word “anarchy”, or “anarchist”, when it is government that is truly evil.
