Freedom Is Anarchy
All governments use violence (in the form of police/militaries) and coercion (in the form of forced taxation) against their populous. Like a world-wide inescapable mafia, all the governments on Earth force us to pay their multitude of taxes, and if we don't, they seize our assets/asses and throw us in jail. As Stefan Molyneux puts it, "the state is a monopoly of individuals with the legal right and obligation to initiate the use of force against others in a given geographical area." But of course if all humans are indeed free and equal then none should have the right to initiate the use of force against others. The videos above are for all you government-apologist, Stockholm syndrome, invertebrates who constantly cry out "but what about schools and roads Eric!? If governments don't steal our tax money, what will we do about schools and roads and national defense??" I know you think freedom is scary, anarchy sounds negative, and it's radical and extremist to point out the utter illegitimacy and immorality of the state... but... I'm just calling a spade a spade. Government is violence. Government is coercion. Freedom is anarchy.
