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.

Our planet's lungs are dying...

Trees are like our planet’s lungs. Every second of every day, they’re absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and converting it into energy.

In fact, according to a study by researchers at NASA, each year, tropical rainforests absorb a staggering 1.4 billion metric tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.
