The real root of human violence, is not the lack of central planning, state control and laws. The real root, is the use of violence to solve problems. Its particularly bad when violence is used by parents against their children.
That’s why violence always achieves the opposite of the intended effect. Violence begets violence; therefore centralizing power in the hands of the state will simply result in more violence and a lower quality of life for everyone (except the parasites who benefit from violence).

Statism is little more than a vestige from our past, an anachronism. Like those ancient stone gods you see pictures of, such as those in the Amazon. If you weren’t part of that culture and indoctrinated with the bullshit from an early age, it has little effect on you.
Statism is just like those statues. We see it so easily when looking at states in other parts of the world or statues in other parts of the world. We think, “how can people go along with this and believe it.” Almost always, the reason people go along with it, is because enough people fear the consequences of not having a state, because they have been taught, from a very early age, that human life could not exist without rulers.
Human life can and has existed without rulers and it has the potential to thrive under such conditions.
Ok, I had a bout of inspiration as I woke up today. I had been a bit torn on what I would do as one of my first “full fledged” vlogs (with the new mic, backdrop, mixer, webcam, etc).
The topic of the vlog is going to be, “Anarchism/Voluntarism FAQ”. In this VLOG, I intend to answer many of the questions I often get, the easy questions and especially the tough questions. Feel free to add your question here and if I don’t know the answer, I’ll do some research; but it WILL be answered. Continue reading New VLOG Coming Soon: Anarchist/Voluntaryist FAQ→
