"Since time immemorial, governments have claimed moral superiority. Yet they use laws to loot the productive wealth of working people and build palaces, pyramids, religious monuments, military forces, and other symbols of their power."

Reader comments about this quote:
Government, and the mental image that it implies, is an abstract concept used by tyrants on mental deficients. Amerika is a great example: The attempt at a body politic where individual sovereigns would hire and organize servants through a republican form of representation of inalienable rights rapidly turned into a theocratic socialism. The occupying statist theocracy now infesting this land proves the quote with nothing more than the forced implementation of compelled compliance, government licenses, victimless crimes, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, social security, police state confiscations, etc.), non-recognition of inalienable rights and perfected allodium ( = absolute ownership, real, personal, or otherwise), funny money (debt) replacing tangible capital and the government's means and control of production and distribution.
