I will not attempt to counter each point...we disagree so profoundly that it can only descend into acrimony.
I find it curious that you agree that governments are formed by the violent to perpetuate the power of the violent. You advocate that the People need to form a more powerful benign government to protect them from the transgressions of the evil government. As I see it, granting power to some individuals to tax and coerce so they can protect you from another group of individuals who are taxing and coercing is nearly the perfect description of protection rackets. Power, once granted, inevitably expands until the protector becomes as bad as or worse than the original oppressor.
We have nothing further to discuss. You've made your points. I disagree. Our world views are too different to reconcile.
