Classical Liberalism: Fail

• Fr33 Agents / Jim Davidson
Why does the state fail? Was it not founded with the consent of the governed to secure the rights to life, liberty, and property? The short answer is no, and because the answer to the second question is no, the state cannot possibly succeed.

Oh yeah. I forgot the fourth reason for a government to exist. It's to BE an oppressive government.

Anybody or any group who controls others for the purpose of order and organization is GOVERNMENT.

The only 3 reasons for government to exist are:

1. For people to unite in organized fashion to fight cruel natural disasters.

2. For people to unite in organized fashion to help each other further some kind of a productive project that would be too difficult for one person alone.

3. For people to unite in organized fashion to protect themselves against oppressive governments.

Any organized movement among people, small or great, is a government, whether it has a single person as its leader, or if everybody is working together entirely according to each person's ow dictates, or anywhere in between.

The Continental Congress is a Government.
