The true risks

in anarchy •  3 years ago 

Of all the dangers in the world, and all the possible ways to be violated, the risks coming from anarchists are so minuscule as to be nonexistent. As far as I can tell, I have never been violated by an anarchist.

No, all the dangers I face out there come from archators, looking to take my stuff and violate my person. And the vast majority of them archate through The State. They are statists- the largest segment of the archator population.

When I look around and realize that almost everyone I encounter supports bullying and theft, it can be a little scary. Sure, most of them "only" support evil within certain parameters- as long as the bad guys call themselves government and only violate me as much as their "job" allows- or as much as they can get away with.

No one has a right to be a statist who puts their belief into action. That's because human rights and statism are incompatible. Archators- particularly the variety known as statists- are the real risk, but they want you to worry about those who are no risk to you, so they can promise to protect you from them.

Don't fall for it.

I am going to put myself in harm's way (for the sake of science, of course... I feel.like Ben Franklin now) and try to aggravate you.

Maybe the reason you were never violated by an anarchist is that the state still protect you in all kinds of ways?

For this to be true it would stand to reason that statists would have never violated me either, since the State doesn't discriminate (as long as we aren't counting its employees), yet I've been violated many times by statists- even those who aren't part of the gang.

So are you saying there should be no states at all? Or maybe no social order of any kind?

States are the opposite of social order. I'm a fan of social order, but not so much of those things which destroy it. I would suggest reading this if you are interested in learning the difference between the State and society: Our enemy, the State, but that's a bit long. This much shorter piece should give you a foundation to build on: The Criminality of the State
