Only modern day statism can wage wars like they do.

    The state is violent in their goals and they have been open with us as they take our civil liberties from us.

    Only more federalism and displacement of power will solve this, not more. However, most modern day people "feel" the need to be rule over by distance bureaucrats and legislatures who act on "their" behalf.

    Gotta love "American Democracy" where they call you traitors for questioning the plutocrats who bought their power.

    Repukes are good at this. Dems are shady at this.

    The state is a violent force in of itself. That is why it will continue to perpetuate violent atrociousness upon unfounded war and erosion of civil liberties.

    Mankind didn't have any problem fighting wars that went on for decades BEFORE there was a modern state.

    If we abadon the concept of rule by representational governments in favor of rule by corporations (and that is where we're headed is it not?) you can expect that wars will them be conducted, much as they were during fuedal times, by the masters of property ...except in this case they're calling themselves CEOs, rather than Kings, and their domains are called corporations rather than Kingdoms.

    Wars have been always product of the states, not individuals.

    You truly do not know what you are talking about.

    What STATE did William the Conqueror represent?

    After he took over England who OWNED the whole nation?

    William, lad.

    Everybody else (including the peers of his realm!) was a tenant on HIS land.

    He was the Duke of Normandy, dipstick.

    You have merely redefined "owner" to be the same as "ruler." Does the President of the United States own the country?

    Purelyderivative is all worked up about "statism" but does not appear to even understand the basic concept.

    Tool.

    There is, indeed, a coercive power in "the state." It is pretty difficult to imagine any government that doesn't have a handle on some level of coercive power. It it has no such power, people will in all likelihood feel perfectly content in ignoring the "laws" promulgated by any such government. To an anarchist, that might be a blissful utopia. But whatever else it is, it is not a functioning government.
