haze - please help

You say we're only halfway there, but I see us being halfway there from a different direction.

Would you be so kind as to read my comment below?

Why is it that no one sees that government is just a tool. Government is being used by big business to shut the rest of us out.

At root is the money - fiat money, created by a private corporation (btw most (big L) Libertarians hate it when at is said, since in their world, anything "private" is good, while anything "public" is bad, and the Fed throws a monkey-wrench into that worldview), used by private corporations but enforced by the government.

It is all a system. Yes, the government has the use of force. But it is big business that is reaching its hand up into the institutions of government - writing the laws that favor them - that is just as much of an issue.

Big business is the puppet behind the government. Ron Paul touched on this somewhat - about the corporatism. But even he chooses to focus on government.

But let's not forget that even Ron Paul says that there is a role for government. He is not an anarchist.
