It amazes me how reasonable some people can make slavery sound.
They can play the part of the “adult in the room” while advocating mass murder conducted “constitutionally”. All they have to do is to mention that it’s the law, or that we are obligated to follow the “social contract” or “pay our fair share” and gullible people will nod in agreement and praise them for being so reasonable and responsible.
It is frustrating to me because they aren’t being reasonable at all.
No matter how sensible statism sounds, no matter how many people accept it without question as “how the world really works”, no matter how “adult” they pretend it is, it is the opposite of reasonable.
Statism is insane. Statists who seem reasonable are like the serial killer who seems rational and calm when they befriend you– but then makes a stew from your skin and eyeballs.
