If someone believes in X, and uses that belief to kill and steal, it doesn’t matter much that X is all in their head.
The harm they cause is real, but, its not X’s fault; it is theirs alone. They have to be the one to make the choice to be the bad guy.
After all, X– be it “authority”, government, religion, or whatever– can’t actually do anything. It’s all the individual’s choice.
Every government employee is guilty of this, even when they believe what they are doing is good or necessary. For one thing, it is all financed by theft. That destroys any “good” that might have otherwise come of it. Every bit.
They shouldn’t ever do it. No matter what beliefs are in their brain, being acted out.
