The American Form of Government

Recommended Posts

I hope you perceive that tyranny is something governments do. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/15/world/asia/thailand-lese-majeste-tongdaeng.html

Tyranny is government and government is tyranny. The overlap is 100% from the perspective of each. In a household Dad rule (tyranny) is the usual case. He governs. Government (tyranny) changes its forms as the human conglomerations increase.

Government is. Tyranny is. There's no getting rid of it. If you don't want one form change it or move or do what you can. The anarchist might find some relief by moving to the sticks or writing screeds or deep philosophy showing how immoral, wrong and evil it is and how possible anarchy (fallacy alert!) is.

saying we don't need government is like saying we don't need rocks--there's a case to be made for each--but they aren't going away no matter how far you throw them

Tyranny is government and government is tyranny.

I have have due regard for what you say and think. However, it matters that tyranny is something that governments do.

The organic founding documents of the United States were supposed to limit what U.S. governments can do.

Agreed.

And to a revolutionary degree they made the best compromise that they perceived that they could.

Their progeny let slip the dogs of war on it's own citizens.

We have a pie. You cut it in half and made a true statement about your half. I have made a true statement about the whole pie. Yours is a derivative or secondary viewpoint. We have no argument--no argument unless you want to argue about what I am writing here now.
