Comment: Government by its very nature initiates force.

(See in situ)

Government by its very nature initiates force.

Shall we also petition scorpions no to sting, rain not to fall, thieves not to steal, and murderers not to murder?

No amount of petitioning will stop the State from doing that which is in its nature.

We are told that our government was formed to protect our natural rights to Life, Liberty, and Property, but it's very existence denies these rights.

First it takes your property through taxation, if you refuse to hand over your property it will take away your liberty through imprisonment, and if you refuse to give up your liberty it will take your life.

We are afraid of others depriving us of our rights to life, liberty, and property, so we create an institution that deprives us these rights, in order to protect us from those that what would deprive us of our rights?

The only way out of this is for masses of people to withdraw their consent from the state through individual secession.

The state is a house of cards, without your consent, it will fall.

We may not be there yet, but through continued education of the public, we can someday reach this goal.
