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.”
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.
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.
Collectivism is the gas leak. As long as we accept a political system built on the assumption that office holders will be honorable and that it is good that they should direct our lives, we shall forever be victims of the predator class. Only fools would create a political system that depends on “confidence in man”.

The gun grabbers tell you they want more gun control in order to keep you safe. But that is the Big Lie.
If they really wanted to limit guns used most to murder people they’d target handguns, which are used in almost half of all homicides. Of 8,124 murders using a firearm in 2014, handguns were used 5,562 times. Rifles were used to murder someone only 248 times. And the dreaded “assault weapon” the politicians make such a kerfuffle over is a subset of rifles, so the number of people killed by those is much lower.
John Whitehead: “If you’ve been caught up in the circus that is the presidential election, you’ve likely missed the latest news about all the ways in which the government continues to erode our freedoms, undermine our sovereignty, abuse our trust, invade our homes, invade our privacy, destroy our property, hijack our bank accounts, and generally render itself above the law.
Then again, this is all par for the course from a militaristic government that is armed to the teeth, wages war against its own people, imprisons its citizens for profit, marches in lockstep with the corporate elite, and treats human beings as little more than cattle to be branded, bought, sold and butchered.’
