    Then, if this is true, how does one have governments & states?
    Because the alternative is even worse … something like Somalia or the area controlled by Da’esh ….

      The government is our servant. When it tries to alter that master-servant relationship, trouble is on its way.

        “The government is our servant.”

        Be nice if someone told the government…

      That’s fairly simple to answer: referism, recall and direct democracy.

      The state does what we want, when we want it to. f they choose not to obey, we sack them immediately. Should they try to avoid doing what we tell them, we sack them.

      Councils, for example would be dramatically more efficient if they were required to ask us what we wanted and knew that when they dig the road up for the nth time they should explain it. When they ask us where to cut costs, we sack half of them and reduce the salaries of the rest by 50%.

      It’s called democracy. The current state is utterly unfamiliar with it.

    Agree with everything you say, too.
    IU see no contradiction.
    But that is/was not apparent from the original post, was it?
