A voluntary forum of the people, independent of state, would be the means by which people would organize in the absence of the formal presence of a state.
What I am proposing is to establish such an organization concurrent with the presence of a state, in order to cause the state to exercise only those powers that the people have consented to give it.
The state legislature is a place for drafting law and playing politics. It is not the proper place, as we Americans have for too long assumed, to hold those general debates concerning the popular political will. This is the big lie.
We require political society that is independent of state. If we integrate political society into the state, the state will corrupt it.
