There is No Slowing Down Leviathan

Come over here and sit down for a second conservatives, political libertarians, alt-right people, libertarian universalists, alt-lite people, and many others. You need to come to terms with something …

You’ve lost.

There is no changing the values of the culture. There is no rolling back government. There is no slowing down the leviathan. The culture and the state are gone, and there is no recovering it.

Your feeble attempts to save the culture and the state are built on a misunderstanding of the cause of the problem in the first place. We live in a world created by public schooling, dependency, government manipulation of markets, government manipulation of currency, government usurpation of communities, government destruction of familial ties, and government manipulation of society in general. There is no good pottery to be made with this clay. This clay goes in the trash and you move on. You give up.

The people of 50 years ago didn’t suffer from such horrible incentives and they made the problems vastly worse. To believe that today, after suffering from vastly worse incentives, that people will just cobble things back together seems utterly delusional. You’ve lost, and it is time to accept that.

The only hope you have is not in going back in time, fighting degenerates, or getting your guy in office. The hope lies in the collapse of the culture and political system and for it to be replaced with nothing. In the remnants, people create what communities they desire to create and the market conditions that best fit their sensibilities in a decentralized world.

Maybe this vision of a decentralized world is delusional … but I think it is vastly more reasonable than believing that the government will shrink itself, the left will change its mind, dependent corporations will opt to be productive, old people will get rid of their government welfare, and banks will decide to give up their power.
