On Power III

Clamoring for violent third-parties to use their power disparity on behalf of workers against fat capitalist pigs is a triple-edged sword, two edges against workers. The first edge is the fact that violent third-parties (government) have their own agenda. They’ll be all too happy to assist workers, but they’ll charge a heavy toll in the form of, among other things, income and payroll taxes. The second edge is the fact that violent third-parties don’t discriminate on who they assist. They’ll be just as happy to assist fat capitalist pigs, by way of hindering competition, in exchange for wealth of various forms and promises of position alongside them. It seems to me that violent third-parties, governments, are a bigger threat to the life, liberty, and property of workers than are fat capitalist pigs. But since workers were raised in government indoctrination centers, schools, they’ve been conditioned not to notice.  That’s too bad, and today’s two cents.
