Theft or Slavery

For some reason we have a society that has grown up believing that Slavery and Theft are moral.

If a mobster comes up to you and says you are not allowed to sell your produce without paying for a slip of paper from him to authorize the sale, you are being setup to be stolen from. So this mobster is saying that you doing business with another person is now illegal by his standards because you are not including him in the process.

But lets go further on this. The same mobster decides that you must provide him a percentage of what you make on the transaction, or he will take it from you with penalties. Normally, this mobster is mostly powerless. You would just apply a little self defense to keep him at bay.

This mobster though, has cronies that he has hired to enforce his will, and you are paying not just for the mobster, but his cronies.

But this mobster isn’t satified with threatening you with his enforcement class, he has decided that everyone in his territory must be disarmed. But disarming people by force is not practical. So he sows the seeds of fear, so that the people disarm themselves out of fear of the weapons. And he bribes people with the money that he has stolen to “buy back” weapons from people that need monetary incentives to turn in their weapons.

But it isn’t even stopping there. This Mobster gives away a small part of his stolen lucre to people to bribe them into believing that they cannot survive without him. Sure, he invests into those services that make his job easier, that also have benefit to his victums, but these expenditures come with more expenses that he uses to justify stealing more money.

This mobster doesn’t even stop there, he works with other mobsters and other cronies, that when the time comes that he steps down, he ends up having a replacement that repreats his program, and gets used to the personal wealth in duplicating the process.

However, this mobster, in his desire for power, also works with the wealthy of the business nobels, to make laws that fafor them. Effectively creating regional and small market monopolies.

This mobster, in his coordination with the business nobles, his personal cronies, and others, make sure that when the people have the opportunity to replace him, only replace him with a junor version of him, who will preserve the status quo, but with different words and faces.

In the end, would you still allow this mobster to continue to terrorize you, if you saw this coming? Well, you do. And you are. And this mobster is called government.

With the word government attached to anything, it seems to become “moral”, even though it is amoral. Government Theft = Taxation. Government Enslavement = Prohibitions and Licensing. Iminant domain = Enslavement. Civil Forfeiture = Theft.

The next time you tell me that government is nessesary, you are telling me that theft, and slavery is nessesary. Government is not moral.
