Day after day we read that cops or other minions of the ruling class never suffer any legal consequences for various and sundry vile actions on their part. No doubt you can find an example today and every day among the Strike The Root articles.
One working definition of government might as well be, “those people for whom the laws do not, in any real sense, apply.”
It struck me after reading one of these articles, that the rulers are themselves leading an anarchic existence! No law applies to them. Yet, they do not experience chaos in their personal lives. They do not murder their fellows over disagreements.
Of course this is not a perfect proof of anarchy, because there are in fact millions who have been murdered by the rulers, primarily those rulers in the United States in recent years. But let us not forget, this is an anarchic society of criminals, psychopaths and sociopaths. The worst do indeed get on top, as Hayek noted.
