The State and the Family
The State and the family are two closely interrelated mechanisms for suppressing the moral authority of the individual. The State is a fairly obvious case, in that it corrupts the morals of children for over a decade so they end up, at best, resentful but compliant – and at worst, worshipful. The corruption of these […]

Loving the State: Leviathan and Optimism
Here in Canada, we are about to surrender our infants to the State. Government daycare will be imposed upon us, and now not even the needs of their newborns will keep our citizens from returning to the tax-galleys. Another cluster of unionized State leeches will attach themselves to the body politic, hoping to feed on […]

De-Socializing Socialism - or - The Myth Of Being Nice
The current debate in Libertarian circles regarding whether the ‘origin of things’ is important or not misses the point. Whether the Fed came into being through corrupt political maneuvering, or whether State education was brought about by desperate and slightly incompetent teachers, or whether the income tax is legal or not, is all rather beside […]

The Blessing of Poverty
Two poor young men, Ralph and Bobby, each decide on very different courses. Ralph loves the party life; he drops out of high school, gets a menial job, goes out to bars, chats up women and generally has a great time. Bobby also takes a menial job, but takes night courses for years in order […]

A Middling Vice: How the average always loses…
There are two main groups which benefit from State predation, and both take their ill-gotten goals from the wallets of the middle class. The Poor The poor have always loved the State, because the income that it redistributes to them – though small in real terms – is close enough to the income that they […]

Concepts Have Taken Over: A Survival Guide To A Mental Plague
It is an odd but universal catastrophe that what was intended as a mute servant, sadly, become a roaring master. Specifically, concepts have changed from handy idea-categories to anthropomorphic devils in charge of our lives. Originally, concepts were mere descriptors; like numbers, they were derived from real things, and were utterly subordinated to them. Concepts […]

Why People Reject Freedom
Recently, I had a very disturbing argument. I was making the case for a State-less society, and a friend of mine said that leaders do what the people want anyway. If that is the case, I said, then there is no reason for compulsion. Well, he replied, the leaders do what is best for the […]

Death to God: The Cancer of Illusion
There are many atheists who believe that religious faith, while irrational and untrue, is a harmless hobby, a merely personal weakness, or a sentimental comfort. Nothing could be further from the truth. The belief in God is an active cancer in the world. Supporting this belief in any manner adds to that sickness, which is […]

The Relative Goodness of God
Surely one of the strangest and most prevalent notions is that, without God, ethics are relativistic. The term ‘relativistic’ here means that good and evil are mere opinions, subject to no proof, universal imposition or general enforcement. What could be stranger than to believe that the contradictory opinions of an elusive and invisible deity constitute […]

The Stateless Society: An Examination of Alternatives
If the Twentieth Century proved anything, it is that the single greatest danger to human life are the thugs of the centralized political State, who extinguished more than 170 million souls during the bloodiest rampage in recorded history. By any rational standard, modern States are the last and greatest remaining predators – and that the […]
