Sustained Noncompliance Will Result in Execution

No government is ‘free’ and no government is really ‘more free’ than any other. Fundamentally, government is just some people violently imposing their preferences on others. The more those imposed preferences happen to align with your preferences, the more free the government seems to you, but the fact remains that sustained noncompliance will result in execution under all governments.

Don’t believe me? Try performing some simple victimless act like driving faster than the posted speed, and then simply refuse to comply when told to “stop,” “pull over,” “get out of the vehicle,” “show me your hands,” and “get on the ground.” I guarantee you’ll be dead before the experiment is over.

Here’s the kicker, though. The outcome will be the same regardless of the government or the specifics of which preferences it violently imposes on people. All governments are the same. All are willing to murder you if you won’t bend the knee.
