On Government Bankruptcy

Government is bankrupt in two senses: 1) The individuals calling themselves “government” can’t pay back their debts (wages, entitlements, and bonds) without stealing from other individuals, proving that they are financially bankrupt, and 2) The individuals calling themselves “government” will lie, steal, and murder to maintain their illegitimate authority, proving that they are morally bankrupt. By definition, then, government is bankrupt. And that’s today’s two cents.
