Yes, I was on the verge of endorsing full anarchy before I learned a few things. But to suggest that I am an anarchist because I don't believe that one man has the right to tell another man what his life is worth is stretching things a bit. I have come to comprehend the true nature, in law, of the state and its necessity as well as it's unique American attributes.
"State, n. A people permanently occupying a fixed territory bound together by common-law habits and custom into one body politic exercising, through a medium of an organized government, the independent sovereignty and control over all persons and within its boundaries, capable of making war and peace and entering into international relations with other communities of the globe."
~ Black's Law Dictionary, Fourth Edition
So, to assume that any "centralized authority" read: organized government formed by the people, would have any legislative authority over the people, who are the state, is a fallacy, because it is contradictory to the protection of the natural rights of the people, as well as the hierarchy of the creator and the created: the the creator in this case being the people and the created being their government.
That government, by the consent of the people, would have legislative control, however, over privileges which fall outside of natural rights. Such privileges would encompass the establishment of corporations and other artificial persons for what ever reason not limited to limited liability, and perpetual existence.
But these privileges, and their regulation by the government, have nothing to do with the people who exercise their natural right to life which extends to the free exercise of their liberty to contract and trade their lives for objects of value, necessity, or profit.
The biggest issue for the peoples of America is to figure out which state they pledge their allegiance and enjoy the free exercise of their natural rights?
