Here is the problem with being anti-state, and the reason that anarchy is untenable:


As a noun, a people permanently occupying a fixed territory bound together by common habits and custom into one body politic exercising, through the medium of an organized government, independent sovereignty and control over all persons and things within its boundaries, capable of making war and peace and of entering into international relations with other states. The section of territory occupied by one of the United States. The people of a state, in their collective capacity, considered as the party wronged by a criminal deed; the public; as in the title of a case, "The State v. A. B." The circumstances or condition of a being or thing at a given time.

As a verb, to express the particulars of a thing in writing or in words; to set down or set forth in detail; to aver, allege, or declare. To set down in gross; to mention in general terms, or by way of reference; to refer.

I certainly agree that the Federal government exercises extra-constitutional power and authority, but to dismantle it requires having standing in law to do so. In order to have standing, one has to have the proper status. Few realize that the 14th amendment changes their de jure status as a member of the Union States' body politics weilding sovereignty over the entire constitutional system to a de facto subject citizen of congress with no political power or sovereignty whatsoever.

When we unite in lawful de jure status once more, and secure republican freedom for ourselves again outside the control of Congress, we will find that to dismantle our States is folly, achieving only disunity and lawlessness, for there will then remain no body politic to exercise sovereign authority over any law.

Knowing the law is freeing, but eliminating law eliminates Sovereignty for everyone. There is no, and can never be, such a thing as "individual sovereignty" especially if you believe in the NAP. There is, however a big difference between statutory law and common law. In republican freedom we can design the protection of our freedom in any manner we choose. The trick is to get to a State of republican freedom.
