Top 4 Government Perpetuated MythsSubmitted by Absolute Rights on Sun, 09/15/2013 - 23:38
1. We are the government.
Nope. The government is made up of the law makers and the army of men and woman they employ to carry out their will. It is an entity that is separate and apart from society.
They claim the right to harm the individuals of society without legal consequence...with legal impunity. Think:if a congressman votes for a law that puts me out of business, can I bring a court action against him?
2. The government works for society.
Nope. The government GOVERNS society...and it is not obligated to you in any way.
3. The government represents the majority of society.
Nope. The total number of law makers is minuscule. It is their will that becomes binding on the whole of society.
4. Paying taxes is paying for government provided services.
Nope. The government takes money from whomever it wants, as it wants, and is not obligated to provide any services in return.
It only provides services as it pleases.(to buy loyalty, dependence, and infrastructure it desires.)
These myths are word games they've used to keep us from realizing a frightening truth. We are ruled...by a small number of people...who employ an army to forcefully carry out their will.
I am for individual liberty and believe the primary rule which should govern society as a whole is: Do not harm another.
