Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats. –H.L. Mencken
It really irks me to hear an election anywhere described as a new government.
NPR reports that Italy got a new government on Sunday. The same thing is said whenever there’s an election in the UK. The prime minister “forms” a new government.
American’s fawn over the supposed “peaceful” transfer of power in one of our elections.
But the truth is, there are no new governments.
They are always just the same government as the day before the election, but with new tyrants in charge of them.
And strictly speaking, there is no such thing as government.
There are only people who decide to accept stolen money as compensation for enforcing the tyrant’s edicts with the threat or execution of violence.
