Government Will Die…(A Great Day!!)
Column by Alex R. Knight III
Exclusive to STR
But not by way of “Second Amendment remedies” or any such hyperbole. True, there may well (and probably will) be episodes of anti-government violence before we get to the zero-government endgame, but as my last piece here at STR pointed out, violence begets violence. And we know that government, by its very nature is inherently violent. It can exist in no other way.
So what makes me so certain that government’s days are numbered? I’m not going to try and replace the Nolan Chart here (Liberal-Centrist-Conservative-Statist-Libertarian), but maybe try updating it a little – this is after all the 21st Century, and the times, they are a-changin’.
As I see it, there are essentially four main things going on in two different camps. Those two camps we might call the Statists and the Anti-Statists. In the Statist camp, things have never really advanced beyond the old Left-Right paradigm. There really isn’t, in practical reality – a Ron Paul or a Rand Paul notwithstanding – room for much else within the context of statism. You’re either for a socialist welfare nanny State, or a crony-capitalist militaristic fascist State. Take your pick. I’ll take neither, thanks.
