The Case for Abolition

Over at Strike the Root, Glen Allport makes the case for abolishing government (and the slavery that he believes necessarily accompanies the existence of government) altogether. Like the Ring of Power from the Lord of the Rings, Allport argues, no one can hold the power that is vested in government without it necessarily corrupting them.

(If Allport is right about government and his analogy is apt, then Ron Paul is Tom Bombadil because power has no influence over him. If you don't catch my reference, you need to dust off your Tolkien and read.)
