Comment: I sympathize and yet there are a few problems.

(See in situ)


I sympathize and yet there are a few problems.

1. Big weapons and big swaths of geography that disagree and have governments.

And on the opposite end ...

2. Local governments, in essence, are basically 3rd party arbiters. They are corporations with special powers that simply exist through a contract with the community. They can't throw you in jail for not paying local taxes (at least in most cases), but they can basically run you out of town or make things very hard for you if you don't follow the rules and yet use their services. And the rules are clear and transparent (in most cases) and they are the rules because the local yokals agree to them. There are examples of abuse and we are human and there is never going to be a Utopia. But for your argument to hold water then these corporations are not governments ... right?
