Statism-- Irrational excess and threats

I ran across a statist who assumed he was being reasonable about governing "better". He admitted that change is probably necessary but he advocated "rational reform based on moderation and compromise".

There's no such thing.

If you advocate political government you are advocating neither moderation nor compromise. You are advocating excess and making threats. You are demanding a one-size-fits-all approach, and the minority is just out of luck. That's not rational.

Those who would call for "rational reform based on moderation and compromise" are always government supremacists who would be upset that anyone would resist their enlightened benevolent governing. After all, "government is necessary". Statists are both irrational and superstitious. They are also elitists.

What they seek to rationally reform is those loopholes of liberty they don't like... by closing them. They propose to compromise them away because they are uncomfortable allowing them to exist.


Writing to promote liberty is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.
I hope I add something you find valuable enough to support.
