Libertarian brain-twisters: Do governments commit crimes? Can laws be illegal? Retweet
“Government is cops and courts.” That’s most people’s baseline view of what government is.
What if you could subtly undermine that simplistic view?
What if your friends and neighbors began to view cops and courts as organized crime, and most “laws” as illegal? Might this “twist” their thinking toward a new view of what government really is or should be? Might they come to place new limits on what they will accept as law?
We have a group of Mental Levers designed to accomplish these goals. Check them out.
- When is a government committing a crime?
- Is it possible to be a passive participant in crime?
- Is human psychology bred for captivity?
- Can an argument be made that democracy is just as bad as other forms of rule?
- Does democracy pervert self-rule?
- Can morality be divorced from law?
- Is all legislation lawful?
Our Mental Levers are mini-articles that present key libertarian ideas in bite-size chunks.
