Liberty Only Requires Removing One Lie

We don’t actually need to make people know anything new, or be anything new, in order to drastically improve society. While it’s helpful that there are in-depth treatises on Austrian economics, and thorough explanations of the finer points of the libertarian/anarchist philosophy, and all sorts of attempts to describe alternatives to the statist versions of “protection,” “welfare,” etc., none of that is actually essential to achieving a voluntary, stateless society.

Eliminating the vast majority of oppression, extortion, injustice and murder in the world, and achieving widespread peaceful coexistence, does not require teaching the human race anything new; it only requires removing one lie that almost everyone has been taught: “authority.”
