What do I mean by “statist-speak”? I mean words or terms which have zero meaning, except through the lens of the State.

For example:

“Resisting arrest”


“Tax avoidance”



None of those mean anything, unless you look at the world as the State directs you to.

It’s probably impossible to avoid all statist-speak all the time. But, when you see those words or phrases, remember what they are.
