In reply to comment: Militias and "organization" (see in situ)

I have more questions than points

Perhaps, we need to distinguish between Big G government and small g government?

Big G means what we have now... a bloated, abusive and criminal enterprise.
small g means a set of rules or tenants that facilitate organization and trade.

As an aside, from what I gather, the etymology of "gov" comes from ancient India. The name of the temple where gold was exchanged for cows was called... (I will have to hunt it down again), the name started with the root word 'Gov'. Govinda is one of the names of Lord Krishna referring to his occupation as a cowherd. In Persian, the word for cow is 'Gov'. The cows were kept in stalls beneath the temple.

Incidentally, this is where the concept of "interest" came into play. For example, when someone sold cows to the temple for gold to be used for some sort of venture. When the person returned to repurchase the cows, any calves born in the duration belonged to the temple.

You said, "... if the community already has a "government," they're ALREADY enslaved. Beth Noveck: Demand a more open-source government So what's your point?"

At this stage, I have more questions than points. I'm watching TED talks regarding the subject of government.

I have been using Linux open source operating system for well over 6 years. It's BETTER than Mac and Windows and it's FREE.

The difference? What's the difference between a few thousand paid programmers working in secret, on segments of code in a highly compartmentalized environment OR millions of programmers donating their time and expertize, co-operating in the open, sharing knowledge for the purpose of building better operating systems ----- including 1000's and 1000's of excellent open source applications and programs.
