All they have to do is leave peaceful people to be peaceful? Learn them to not aggress against someone, sure. But that’s what people do already. If someone comes at you with intent to harm you, do you not defend yourself? If you want freedom it will come at a cost and with some growing pains. It’s not going to be a utopia, and it’s not going to be easy.
Why should I be forced to pay taxes that support the bombing and murder of innocent people in other lands? Am I not really free to decide that? Simply because I was born on one plot of dirt I’m bound to follow it’s absurd laws? All I’m saying is to allow people to opt out of this “social contract” that I’ve never agreed to. Why does it go on? Because “The empire doesn’t require my consent”.
And you can’t just up and move to Antarctica, GOVERNMENTS of the world wouldn’t allow it! Shoot man people moved to New Hampshire in search and how much different is that from Antarctica? The US government doesn’t just allow someone to walk away easily and even if it did there aren’t loads of welcoming destinations. If it’s the land of the free then how about they try and let the people exercise that freedom that is so beholden? I’d settle for only crimes with a victim to be enforced even. Enforcement of victim less crimes is a clear indicator we are not free.
Trust me man I was where you are, but time taught me a lesson in life. As I got older and seen the world around me for what it really is, without thee blinders of red, white and blue glasses. I don’t expect to change your mind, I know no one would have changed mine. But the discussion is fun anyways.
