The war I'm talking about is the war between individuals and the state.
You see, governments have already lost. They just don't know it yet.
There has been a war going on between collectivizing, coercive
government and the allied forces of individualism, freedom and markets
for quite some time. Exactly how long is hard to say because for most of
history it seems that the governed more or less accepted that they need
to be governed and accepted the brutality of politicians, whether those
politicians were tribal chiefs, pharaohs, princes or presidents. So
there wasn't much of a fight going on between the forces of coercion
(the state) and the forces of cooperation and peace (the market) for the
first few thousand years of human civilization.
