What is the alternative to The State?
The State should be replaced by consumer-controlled governance.
Consumer-controlled governance will begin when violence-based funding ends. You will set your own budget for governance and choose your own providers of governmental services. We will create a culture of choice. Choices like these . . .
- Habitat for Humanity vs. HUD
- Underwriters Laboratories or NSF International vs. OSHA and the FDA
- A personal security firm vs. tax-funded police
- Decentralized approaches to national defense vs. a politically managed centralized military
You can fire and replace consumer controlled institutions. Governmental services need to work the same way. If you want to rule government, rather than having The State rule you, please join us by subscribing to our free email newsletter.
