Willful ignorance and statists

Is it just me, or do statists seem willfully ignorant to you, too?

They try too hard to complicate matters and miss the point. I say I'm against political government so they lecture me for rejecting cooperation and on the wisdom of forming a group.

Or, they say if you're an anarchist, you'll soon starve to death if government goes away because without "law and order" there will be no food.

Or, if you talk about abolishing government schools, they'll insist that you want to cause a new Dark Age of ignorant peasants who can't read.

When you say "abolish the police" they imagine you just want to rape and murder without consequences. And that you must hate civilization, women, the handicapped, and old people.

They don't think beyond their rehearsed soundbites. If you try to show them the truth, they shut you down or ignore you.

It's pretty obvious they aren't even trying. I wonder if they ever were.


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.
