  • I’ve just found your site via Strike the Root, and I have to say that I am laready blown away. Currently I am at 12:49 in this video, and it is safe to say my mind is thoroughly blown.

    I’ve also taken a quick scan of your articles, and I have to say I can’t wait to dive in.

    I’m an atheist, anarchist and resident of Canada as well, if you care to know.

  • Permit me to play the devil’s advocate.

    Government may not exist in a physical sense. Aggreed. However, I do not think the physical existence of government is much of a problem.
    Just because “government” is solely a meta-physical concept, people may still voluntarily support government agents and voluntarily participate in government actions.

    I do not like this issue because it seems like preaching to the choir — to continue the analogies with religion. Statists can hear “Government does not exist as a physical entity!” and can simply say “Yes, we know that but we are not pretending otherwise.”

  • The real world out there is an idea in your mind. And it is a collective belief, a collective delusion?
