Government is the problem and has to go, for good.Submitted by qaoss on Wed, 06/27/2012 - 11:52
Whenever I talk about anarchy people always throw out the old tired cliche`: if you want to live without any gov't then go live in Somalia and see how you like it.
So if Somalia is a country of murderous, druggged out thugs, then how would taking a select few of those people and putting them in a gov't change that? That would only create a gov't of murderous, drugged out thugs who have been centralized and given all the power and authority. You thought they were bad before? You ain't seen nothing yet.
The problem IS gov't. No moral, responsible adult needs to be governed by anyone. If you have a society, however, of immoral, irresponsible people, then the problem isn't lack of a gov't, it's the morality of the people. No gov't can change that, only the people can.
Creating a gov't is the absolute worst thing to do as we can see in every single country around the world. It steals money from people, abuses the people and doesn't do any of the things it says it can.
The gov't doesn't need to be revamped, it needs to be tossed in the garbage.
