Imagine a world where people don’t fight over their imaginary friend.
Imagine a world where people don’t kill each other over disagreements about how their imaginary friend is worshiped, or how the holy symbols of the imaginary friend are treated.
No, I’m not talking about Christianity, Islam, or any of those sorts of belief systems. I’m talking about statism: the world’s largest, most popular, and most deadly religion.
The State is an imaginary friend. It only exists in the mind, and there is nothing friendly about that belief. Belief in the State is expressed in many ways, but people don’t usually want it expressed in opposing ways and continually kill each other over their differences. The belief in this imaginary friend is very harmful. It would be better to give it up. In fact, it is suicidal to not give it up.
