Sometimes, the biggest enemy, to peace, freedom and intellectual honesty, is within our own head. Keep a cool head and think honestly and act courageously, before you submit to some form of ignorance.
How to think critically and not be swept up by the propaganda, into doing what “they” (either the terrosts or the government — or both) want you to do.
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).
The physical, emotional and medical effects of child abuse. You cannot understand or oppose the violence of the world without understanding its true source…
One of the driving forces that keeps statism going, is the fact that statists see violence from the state, as a solution to society’s problems. They are frequently calling on the state to utilize violence, coercion and theft, against various aspects of the population, to achieve their desired ends.
What these statists fail to realize, however, is that statism and violence, are the root causes of many of the problems in society. The big companies that statists often bemoan, are allowed to become so large and powerful, primarily due to regulations which keep competitors from competing for their market share. These regulations are enforced by government violence and coercion.
When statists call for more taxes and regulation, they are unknowingly enabling the already well connected corporations to maintain their strangle-hold on the market. They then see the side effects of these policies, which destroy the economy and the marketplace; they blame the free market and capitalism, then call for additional centralization of power in the hands of the state.
What you end up with is a self-reinforcing cycle which erodes the free market and replaces it with crony capitalism, where corporations and the state work closely to maintain the status quo.
