Silver Lining of Statism: Creating More Anarchists Every Day


For the victims of police violence - whether while protesting or filming inside a warzone like Ferguson, or the 50,000 SWAT raids per year, or the "asset forfeiture"or the daily cobweb of regimentation - it's hard to feel any sense of justice.

The system is designed to give law enforcement officials complete license to assault, maim, and kill - "qualified immunity" - without the ability of the public to hold them accountable. If state police were to be held to a higher standard of say, market forces and market regulations, then there would be far more peace officers and far less rogue cops. Instead of answering to us as customers, they answer to the politicians that assign them their budgets. And who pays for their budgets?

You and I. Or else. Fines. Tickets. Cages. House raids. And they will kill you if you resist their aggression if you fall under the mistaken assumption that you are free. We can't withdraw our consent or our dollars. We can't take our business elsewhere.

There is no justice for victims of state violence.
