Thanks, Andy. To let you know, I'm thinking representative government is step one in statism. I'm considering government is best when it doesn't exist. Why do I consider that? Because it makes sense that when a person cedes his thinking and acting, even if only partially, that his enslavement has began.
I'm thinking the Wild West wasn't wild after all. The individual is a defensive being whose offense is in retaliation, a reaction, not really an offense. Therefore, let life live. The individual can and does fine on his own.
For the most part, we see this lifestyle in our lives daily but conversely can see the opposite lifestyle, oppression, because government and businesses are one entity creating life so that the individual, in his abidance of their rules, asks them for permission to do for himself, that is, the individual cannot act on his idea then and there, allowing the individuals he interacts with to regulate themselves therefore him (in that sequence, mind you, always, always an inside-outside-therefore-inside relationship -- the individual's regulation, freedom's regulation).
So, down authoritarianism regardless its name such as government or otherwise and raise freedom.
