So your friend thinks humans need government?

Let’s make this simple folks. Seriously, it isn’t rocket science.

Ask this person if they get along with their direct neighbors.

Odds are if they detest them, this person votes-lobbies-petitions in the extreme. If this is the case, simply continue to be friendly but stop trying to show them, trust me, they won’t see.


If this person enjoys and loans/borrows from their neighbor regularly you have an amazing opening. This is what you say, “you are through this interaction proving you do not need government.” They will question it of course. Tell them, if you can and do work with your neighbor why would you need government? After all, if there was no government what is to stop you from simply knowing more people and working with them to ensure roads are paved, water flows and everyone is fed?


It is simple, an agreement, you keep your word I will keep mine.  After all what benefit comes from harming someone that benefits you by being unharmed? Government is the harmful entity, for as a result of government we humans believe in fact strongly at times that harming another is simply something to do. After all, a neighbor when government is here may be a liability. Remember, if you see something Say Something, right?

I will always defend my family first, neighbors second. After all, when the badges come knocking, the babies burn.

Free the mind and the body will follow.
