No Government, No Force

Social Security requires a bailout that’s greater than the 2008 emergency bank bailout

Simon Black, the Sovereign Man: “A few weeks ago the Board of Trustees of Social Security sent a formal letter to the United States Senate and House of Representatives to issue a dire warning: Social Security is running out of money.
Given that tens of millions of Americans depend on this public pension program as their sole source of retirement income, you’d think this would have been front page news…

What’s really behind the Obamacare repeal/replace debate?

Bob Livingston: “Believing in the necessity of either force or corruption to govern men is the mantra of the politician and government bureaucrat, and they believe that, by the high and lofty positions they’ve obtained, they and only they are capable of governing the American “great beasts.”

The Death Wish of the Anarcho-Communists

Rothbard: Anarcho-communism, both in its original Bakunin-Kropotkin form and its current irrationalist and “post-scarcity” variety, is poles apart from genuine libertarian principle.”
Striker: Communism was, and remains, a version of totalitarian insanity a.k.a. Government. Calling the current batch of rebel socialists anarcho-communists, as we see almost daily in today’s web-spin, is a complete twist of reality.

Trump’s America Is a Constitution-Free Zone

John W Whitehead: “Policing is broken… It has evolved as a paramilitary, bureaucratic, organizational arrangement that distances police officers from the communities they’ve been sworn to protect and serve.

Under Socialized Medicine, The State Owns You

As Americans were spending time scrambling to give the IRS their annual protection fee, the court system in the United Kingdom, at the behest of National Health Service bureaucrats, abducted and murdered an 8-month-old baby. This brazen abduction was done in broad daylight with full press coverage and the UK government and courts claimed loudly this was humane and the right thing to do.

The Myth of the Constitution

In case any reader still clings to the platitude that the American political system is based on the proposition that ours is “a society of laws, and not of men,” I urge you to pay close attention to the events of recent years. Political behavior does not exist in abstractions, such as the “state,” or the “government,” or a “constitution,” but is activity engaged in by such men and women who find the machinery of state power a useful device for accomplishing ends that they value. Those who desire to control others through access to the tools of violence that define the state, have rationales to convince their intended victims of the “rightness” of their rule.
