Its not so much government is evil its more the fact that the people who compose government of any form are no different than anyone else. This is true for a monarchy, dictator, or democratically elected officials. The truth is that the people in government are no more evil than anyone else in the world except for one difference. The evil that lies in every person is always held in check by the inalienable rights of others such as a person who has no moral restriction to steal may be held in check when the person he seeks to steel from will object. This objection might cause him to think twice about the morality of his actions and provide an extra incentive to not steal. Simply put, the rights of other people keep our behaviors in check since someone's right to their property keeps us from stealing it but government has no check since it can act against our will even though it knows we object to it hence the reason why government is involuntary force in our lives.

The people who have power may be held in check by their own moral conscience that restrains them against abusing their power but how much can we trust their conscience when we know that they are no different and just as evil as anyone else. This kind of enviroment where they can act on all impulses with no check invites them to act on every aspect of their nature which can be both good and evil.

This have been the history of government from the beginning. No force has caused more suffering on this earth than government itself and it is because a deadly cocktail has been mixed together of human nature and the ability of the people in government to remove any ability of other human beings who are not in government to resist them.

They are now like the person who may not have the moral restraint to keep from stealing but always had others who could object to the theft therefore keeping his behavior in check. The only difference is that those they want to steal from can not object to that theft which makes government a breeding ground for evil in our society.

Govt is evil because it is made up of people.
Simple one. Got a more difficult one?

Yes but the free will of the customers not to engage in dishonest merchants keeps them in check. This can't be said about government since we have very little choice about it. When you actually can say that you are forced to buy products from a company then you can say you will be getting screwed over. In fact, I can garantee you will be since they know you don't have a choice about buying from them. Which is why freedom of any kind keeps human nature in check.

Government is inherently evil because it holds a monopoly on force in a defined area.

So you actually believe voting is worthless?

Im sure the founders would disagree with you.

How do you vote out an owner of a corporation?

How do you keep corporations like toyota from lying to you about their product so you can make a this choice you claim we can all make.

This current world economic crash was caused by the people who run the corps.

The failure of our government to police the market to keep the people safe.


What you want is world run by corporations.

What keeps toyota in check is them selling crappy cars. When they do that then they would cease to exist but since they can actually sell millions of cars repeatily it shows me that they have established enough trust that they can do this. When people stop buying thier cars because they know its dangerous then toyota will work hard to fix the issue at hand in order to stay in business. If they don't then I have the freedom not to buy their cars which means it is not problem for me.

The idea that the world is ran by corporations is a myth in all free enterprise systems since corporations require you to make a choice to participate in their 'scheme'. They run the world as much as the consumer does because both corporations and the consumer can't exist without the other.

Do you know why government is a weird place? Its the only job in the world where the employees don't have to ask you permission to do something against your wishes. Isn't that a strange concept?

I have seen a lot of your posts and this does not seem as it was composed by the same person. So who wrote this??

I see the progressive/neocon fucktards don't like you much either. Their pissy 5th grade playground mentality negative ratings constitute a badge of honor.:lol:

Which gives Toyota incentive to make a safer car. It's not profitable to kill off your customers.

Right.. So give Government the Authority to control the market? That's sounds pretty Socialist to me.. To keep people safe? If it were true and that easy I'd be for it..

Actually no.. I don't.. But hell, your alternative to Greedy Corporations is Greedy Government? Or.. what?

If you actually read what Capitalism is and how it works you'd realize Regulating the Market is a bad idea..

Laissez-faire is the way to go..

1: A doctrine opposing governmental interference in economic affairs beyond the minimum necessary for the maintenance of peace and property rights.

Thank you for stating an actual fact because up to this point I thought dead people could drive cars. Thank you for that piece of knowledge.
