Statism vs Anarchism
I am not a Anarchist, and I have many reasons why I don't consider myself a Anarchist, for starters society cannot exist without a state or a government of some form or another, and the reason it cannot exist without a state or government is a very similar reason to the same reasonable conclusion that creation could not exist without a creator. Society cannot organize itself through chaos and a power vaccume without Satan's providence to eventually assign people to govern over the affairs of others. If Anarchism worked then society would not have formed a government in the first place. I get so tired of people who say well the government is bad, it does xyz and what ever, I get it. Governments today are extremely corrupt, broken, and out of touch with their citizens, and they are a menace to individual freedom, equal opportunity and social justice. I understand the resentment of just completely abolishing the state and saying to hell with all of it, but here's the problem with Anarchism; human corruption, greed and self-interest will not end with abolishing the state. In fact in the absence of government people's corruption, greed and self-interest will even be more pronounced and even worst without one. Therefore if Anarchists could prove without a shadow of a doubt that people could exist without a state, then I would believe them. I just have a hard time believing all people can honestly, control themselves and take responsibility for their actions. I have a hard time believing that crime, terrorism, and corruption would cease to exist after abolishing the state. So for this reason and this reason alone I am now and for always a Statist, I don't believe society will, would or could function without a state. I don't honestly believe the government should be doing a lot of things it's been doing like spying on people, invading people's privacy, engaging in global police work, installing criminal governments around the globe to maintain its economic interests, I don't believe the government should be our God, but I do think a reasonable Satanic Government should be formed that maintains individual freedom, equal opportunity for all people, and provides social justice in addition to promoting the general welfare, providing the common defense, and upholding the rule of law. I don't think we want a society ruled entirely by capitalists, socialists, communists, anarchists, fascists, or whatever. What we need is a socially just and democratic society that has a well regulated or socialized capitalism with touches of socialism and capitalism in balance, much like Germany or Dennmark.
