Just Stop Believing
Is “The State” a real thing, or is it only a figment of the believers’ imaginations?
The buildings associated with The State are real. The consequences of getting caught violating the multitude of its counterfeit “laws” are real. There are a great many people who work for The State who would tell you the State is real.
But, what if everyone stopped believing in The State? How long would it outlast the cessation of belief? It wouldn’t. Not by one femtosecond. The State’s existence is completely dependent upon belief.
I don’t believe in The State. I believe in thugs who band together and call themselves “the government” or “The State”, but those are completely separate issues. Stop believing in The State, just recognize all the aggressors for what they are, and stop pretending there’s a difference between the warring gangs. They are as they do.
