    If the state protects property by state police, it requires taxes. However, taxes are expropriation. The state thus becomes an expropriating property protector. And a state that wants to maintain law and order, but can itself issue laws, is a law breaking law maintainer.

    Albert Jay Nock used to say that the state was created for the criminal purpose of creating a dependent class without access to property, for the benefit of the elites with access to land. The Brazilian state, in its uncompromising defense of big corporations’ “private property” combined to its ever dedicated effort to deprive poor of their property and control their access to land, is proof of that criminal intent. After all, from whom are the all the World Cup and Belo Monte property-less going to claim restitution?

But do you include faith in the State as another false belief????????
Faith in the State is simply the heir of faith in ancient deities. It is no coincidence that the birth of the Social Contract theory of government (“We” are the “government”) occurred as absolutism was falling and Church and State were decoupling.

    C4SS Media presents 's “The Forever of Anti-Capitalism” read by James Tuttle and edited by Nick Ford.

    Some radicals not usually thought of as economists foresaw the essential principle. Howard Zinn envisaged a time when “[c]ertain basic things would be abundant enough to be taken out of the money system and be available — free — to everyone.” Even Rifkin’s view of a downsized capitalism persisting “in a more streamlined role … thriv[ing] as a powerful niche player” was anticipated by Bertrand Russell: “Provided the sphere of capitalism is restricted, and a large proportion of the population are rescued from its dominion, there is no reason to wish it wholly abolished. As a competitor and a rival, it might serve a useful purpose in preventing more democratic enterprises from sinking into sloth and technical conservatism.”

    The rise of anti-capitalism is the rise of free markets.

    Nationalism does nothing but teach you to hate people you never met, and to take pride in accomplishments you had no part in.

    It can not even be said that the State has ever shown any disposition to suppress crime, but only to safeguard its own monopoly of crime.

    Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.

    You can’t say “I don’t do politics”, because silence is a political statement.
    — 

    Tariq Ramadan (via uniteforpalestine)

    Actually I can, just like an atheist can say he “doesn’t do religion.” Atheism isn’t a form of theism any more than apolitical strategies are political. To renounce superstition is to affirm reason, and to renounce politics is to affirm an alternative way of life that is ethical, peaceful, and productive. To reduce evil in the world, you begin by ending your participation in it, which in this case means the wholesale rejection of the State and the mob rule of politics. Afterwards you begin promoting that which is good, such as cooperative, voluntary, and apolitical means of improving the world.

    The state is an organization of mere mortals who, by one dubious method or another, have been allowed to don the mantle of political legitimacy and to command obedience on pain of imprisonment even of those who never consented to the preposterous arrangement.

    When a legislature decides to steal some of our rights and plans to use police force to accomplish it, what’s the real difference between them and the thief? Darn little! They hide behind the excuse that they’re legislating democratically. The fact they do it by a majority vote has no moral significance whatsoever. Numerical might does not constitute right, no more than a lynch mob can justify its act because a majority participated.
