Comment: While the state is not the villain,

(See in situ)

While the state is not the villain,

the state is the great enabler of villains. A state provides a convenient power structure which someone can seize for great evil. Without the power structure of German government, Hitler would have been just some local town hall asshole. The state is like the One Ring. It can only be used for evil.
