In this series of podcasts I explain “Why Statism”. And why Anarcho-capitalism will fail. Also getting in a long over-due response to one of my YouTube listeners because his question and observations fit in perfectly with this topic.
Show Notes for “Why Statism?”
There are two species. Homo sapiens statist and homo sapiens anarchist. As I've said before, anarchist are born, not made. You come out of the womb capable and unafraid or you come out a slave. The one can never become the either. As I've said how many thousand times, the statist is Aristotle's natural slave. They exist and they outnumber us.
Why do the slaves choose Statism?
1. They can't provide for themselves.
2. They live in fear.
3. They value comfort and convenience more than freedom. Not just your freedom but their own freedom as well. Look at how happy they are to have the corporations know everything about then in return for easier shopping on Amazon. Yet they also hate capitalism. And corporations.
4. They can not provide their own direction, motivation or ethics. Religious people need Gods to tell them right from wrong and give them purpose. Statist people need governments to tell them right from wrong and give them purpose.
5. Natural selection and evolution would remove them from the gene pool. And they know it. The State circumvents natural selection and keeps the inferior alive. This is because the State can only survive with a multitude of inferior people. Superior people do not need that state.
6. They desire “things” and “stuff” without having to earn “things” and “stuff”.
This is not an exhaustive list. There are other contributing factors as well. In this podcast I'm going to take an in-depth look at the first two factors. I'll talk about the others in more depth later.
Statists will never reject statism because they need the State to provide for them. Even after 12 years of public school and four or more years of college they can't get a job without government assistance and minimum wages. Public schools server the same purpose as welfare. They perpetuate poverty. They don't prevent it. Statists can not provide for themselves:
1. They can not create value for others - thus can not make money.
2. They can not negotiate for what they want - thus the need for laws to force others to do as they wish.
3. Since they can't create value they need minimum wages and affirmative action.
4. Since they can not negotiate with others they need laws the prohibit smoking or hate speech or tall grass/weeds in a yard.
5. They are not smart enough to provide for themselves. Statist are the only animals that need to be told what to eat. All other animals can figure out what is and isn't food.
Statists openly declare they can not get a job, negotiate a wage, buy insurance, open a door, provide their own birth control, or protect themselves and their loved ones.
This is why the Life of Julia appeals to these people. They know they are incompetent and thus want cradle to grave supervision from the State.
This is why femistatists regard the government as their husband and the corporation they work for as their boyfriend. They aren't capable of keeping an actual man happy because a man has standards. Femistatists don't have standards and neither does the government or corporation.
