“Makes No Sense” has taken over first place from “WTF?” as “Most Accurate Expletive of the 2014”. And rightly so. When basic logic, simple observation and rational thought clearly expose government “explanations” for Bullshit Flag-Throwing Propaganda, the only question left is: what are YOU going to do about it? Anything else is empty rhetoric…

There is a law of inverse political thermodynamics. Above a certain threshold necessary to free a social system from chaos, over time the more energy expended to maintain order by a governing body, the less order there will be. Government efforts to promote order often cause disorder, and in extreme cases, chaos. If the spending of governments around the world is a proxy for the energy spent maintaining “order,” then never has so much been expended in pursuit of that elusive goal, to such little effect.

In a recent “newsletter”, one of many that crash-land in my InBox each day, were the following observations:
President Barack Obama said, in a speech at Northwestern University:
"I am not on the ballot this fall … But make no mistake: [My] policies are on the ballot - every single one of them."
The primary thrust of the newsletter was that this latest “Me My Mine” from the Narcissist-in-Chief was a big deal. Quoting a WaPo weekend piece from Dan Balz: "This is an election that is … very much about how people view President Obama."

The Pragmatic Anarchist exists because Government doesn't work. Government has never worked and it never will - at least not for free people wanting to live peacefully in a free society; free from Government force, coercion, theft, laws, regulations, the by-products of Government that strangle Freedom and eliminate Liberty.
All government has consistently worked this way. No government has ever come into existence without the use of Force. Revolutions notwithstanding, that Force is ultimately turned on those who brought Government into being and gave it its power and authority. However, there is no circumventing Lord Acton’s infamous and correct observation: “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely”. With a monopoly on the initiation of the use of Force, it is only a matter of time before the corrupted Power of Government employs Force, first to limit then eliminate any semblance of “Freedom in a Free Society”.
Political “party” is irrelevant. Their entire reason for existing is to coordinate the accumulation of power unto themselves to achieve whatever ends will most benefit the members. Notions that Freedom and Liberty have a place in their “platform” is provably ludicrous, illogical and immoral. An open mind, critical analysis, objective reasoning and logic will reveal the lie that is “Government”.
Anarchy is the only answer left; the only moral solution as yet untried.
