Bootlickers are not only those who support and praise the state and those people who call themselves “government“. Bootlickers are also those who are quick to let you know just how much trouble you could get in by defying these predators. Renegades are well aware of the risks they take by trying to ignore the state and its demands. When you assist the state by carrying forward its coercion (threats), whether you agree with it or not, you are serving the state in a terrible way. The state thrives on fear, and reminding people exactly why they should be afraid is to strengthen the state. Thus, bootlicker. And that’s today’s two cents.
