If Archation is OK…

Maybe archation isn’t a problem. Maybe you do have the right to initiate force and take, damage, or otherwise violate the property of others.

Where does that lead, if that’s the case?

Theft, murder, rape, kidnapping, vandalism, trespassing… it’s all fine. If you have the right to do it, then no one has the right to stop you.

Or, maybe some would argue that only a government— a group of people claiming “authority“– has the right to do those things, and only as necessary to do the “job”.

Where would that lead?

To the exact same place, but with people pretending it’s all fine. Individuals shouldn’t do those things, but if an individual who belongs to group that claims “authority” does them, well that’s just peachy.

That’s part of why statism just doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.

But, if I’m wrong… well, I’ll leave that for tomorrow. See you then.
