Government doesn't exist

1 post / 0 new

This may seem obvious to some but there is no such "thing" as government. There are only people. I call the voluntary peaceful interactions between people "society" and the violent, coercive ones "government". But these are only metaphors. On a related note, there is no such "thing" as the economy. It is only a metaphor for the sum total of all of the exchanges of goods and services that go on every day.

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
