To Make This Claim
Government is an organized criminal syndicate that extorts people for money and control.
We all know that extortion is when somebody is told "Do what we tell you to do or we will hurt you." We all know that extortion is what a bad person, a criminal, does to a victim.
Organized crime syndicates use a method of extortion called a protection racket. "If you don't pay us to protect you, we won't protect you (from us)." "From us" may be brazenly stated or only implied.
Politicians write rules. Politician's rules are written demands to be obeyed under threat of being hurt if you don't obey. The politician's rules called "penalties" or "fines" are the threats to hurt you if you don't comply. Thus rules of politicians, dictators, and monarchs are all extortion. Do what they tell you to do or be hurt.
These criminal actions can not be defended by logic or by morality.
Think or Run?
If you haven't clicked away from this page already, I expect those just now being exposed to this ugly truth to be feeling emotionally disturbed. I know that feeling because I have felt it also when I learned that what I was taught was actually indoctrination to put thoughts and thinking in my mind that buried and ignored the simple truth. That feeling actually has a name. It's called "Cognitive Dissonance."
Cognitive dissonance is a term for the state of discomfort felt when two or more modes of thought contradict each other.
I understand that I have just dropped a bomb in your mind. I understand because I have been where you are. I understand that this is a tough concept to accept. Especially when you have been indoctrinated to never question the indoctrination.
