Without Government

November the 10th was Remembrance Sunday a photo opportunity for nationalist and state flunkies to show their pseudo emotions and faux morality.

Hobbes though that without a strong central authority, civil society would fragment and people descend into a primitive and brutal life. There’s even a kind of meme that you can google that goes something like this “without government … people would run around killing each other”.

As a remedy to all this soldier and state glorifying pomp, let’s unwind that double-think with a little bit of reality check. Because it seems to me that government people have a long history of running around killing each other and a lot of people who were just minding their own business.

The fallacy here is that a civil society with law is impossible without a state and a central authority. I’ve covered this falsehood in many previous programs.

Slave Soldiers of Switzerland

So slavery was abolished ages ago right? Not really…

“Switzerland has mandatory military service for all able-bodied male citizens, who are conscripted when they reach the age of majority, though women may volunteer for any position.” Wikipedia

Slavery is still alive and well in 21st century Europe and people seem content so long as only young men are the ones being forced to do the labour. This reflects the way men are regarded as disposable objects for social exploitation.

Why would anyone want to protect a society that denies people their most fundamental freedoms?

Armed Forces Day? An Imperialist Circus!

In this program I deconstruct the false moral narrative of “duty” imperialists use to co-opt popular support for their deadly programs of foreign intervention.
