Reasons Why All State Political Systems are Criminal Organizations - by Greg Flanagan
The Case Against the World System of Political States.
A partial listing of their abuses of human rights.
government is only legitimate as long as it protects natural rights and upholds
natural law. The
State is a criminal organization and illegitimate because
all legitimate government is derived from natural law established by immutable
human rights which are completely rooted in individual sovereignty, the true
definition of a crime is that which violates human rights or natural law, for
there to be a crime there must be a victim. The State by definition is
criminal in its operations, it is a conspiracy by a gang of people to act
in collusion to continually commit crimes against human rights, to operate their
cartel and impose what is merely political opinion, and manipulate behavior to
serve the interests of unscrupulous racketeers (meaning special interest groups,
political activists and politicians). The crimes of The State are
endless and includes; theft (taxation), mass murder and terrorism (war),
false imprisonment (arresting and convicting people for acts labeled as crimes
in which there is no victim and therefore there is no real crime), extortion
(using the threat of violence to get people to comply with regulations, follow
the orders of their masters and hand over their money and property),
censorship, slavery (conscription), persecution of social and religious
groups and many other violations. Such an organization from its basic
assumptions to its inherently criminal activities is absolutely immoral and is
illegitimate as a justifiable system of government.
In the past the concept of sovereignty was religious and was attributed to the god that a people worshipped. When some thug was able to fight his way to power and beat other people into submission he, as the monarch, claimed to be the sovereign; he proclaimed himself to be a god or that he was acting in the place of or by the authority of god. As the divine right of kings was refuted, those who filled the power vacuum had to invent some supreme legitimacy for themselves, since people no longer accepted divine rule by a person they had to invent a new entity with the same deified status. The invention of the modern nation-state was born, claiming sovereignty over the lives of the people.
Thus the concept of the nation-state arose as an entity which is really no one and nothing, except a mob of people imposing its illusionary idol on others.
When a group of people invent their own concept of nationality, which is an expression of their own cultural values, and they set their nation up as a State against anyone else, they are imposing their own narrow culture and values on others. Nations are ethnic, religious, cultural or social associations that can only exist through free association, because cultures and concepts of nations are constantly changing. A nation has no rights, just as a club or a business has no rights, only the individuals who own and belong to them have rights and the only way they do have a right to these things is by respecting everyone else's equal right to make their own choices. When a horde of barbarians or a democratic mob try to impose their concept of a nation on others they are criminals against human rights, their nation-state has no sovereignty whatsoever, sovereignty is intrinsically a part of the human mind and cannot be separated from an individual, individuals cannot transfer their rights, though they may surrender them, and no one may represent your rights for you. Sovereignty cannot exist for an institution or for a group, except in the joint sovereignty of each individual within the group. That means, of course, that each individual is consensually participating in the group and retains one's full rights, including one's sovereignty and the right to leave that group and form or join another.
Either government belongs to the people under natural law and with it the right to make consensual laws to which they voluntarily commit themselves or "law" ( i.e.; political violence) remains the property of the few who seize power to be used as a weapon against the people in order for The State to protect itself and control peoples' lives. Sovereign individuals must join together to lay down the law to The State and other criminal organizations that seek to impose tyranny on sovereign humanity.
enough money and influence they can get just about anything they want; all they have to do is pay the money to the candidate who agrees to support their position, the big money almost always wins the election. And after the legislator is in office the pressure is really turned up on that person, with lobbying and the very heavy influence of contributions made to future campaigns, the legislator knows that if he is going to get re-elected then he had better play the tune the customer has paid for or his political career will be a short one.
States presume to license out rights to individuals as a way to control their behavior in order to serve those in power. No one has the right to tell others what kind of rights they can or can't have. All human rights are based on the sovereignty of the individual and are clearly understood through reason as natural rights that are inherently a part of being human. An individual must further define one's rights in relation to others in consensual contractual government and societies in accordance with the equal right of all people to the same liberty. The State presumes to claim the ultimate right for themselves, to change the way individual rights are interpreted, to take away the rights of some individuals who threaten to claim their full right to be free. This makes the concept of rights and human life itself nothing more than the property of The State. If one allows others to define and set limits on the kind of rights that one has, they will inevitably design a society that serves their own interests while denying those of others. The only equal and absolute right is individual sovereignty, all other rights are defined by this and measured against it. The reasoning process of determining natural human rights uses the law of individual sovereignty to test the soundness of all concepts of rights. Any right claimed by an individual that is consistent with individual sovereignty is a right. Meaning that a person has the right to anything that doesn't deny the equal right of others to the same liberty.
rights do not come from any government, The State can't give you your rights and
they can't take them away, they violate them, but they can't take something that
is an intrinsic part of a human being.
Supporting The State is absolutely morally wrong, paying taxes to it, or even making excuses for it or tolerating its existence is wrong. People have a duty to live by sovereign self-government by respecting each other's natural rights and interacting through consensual contracts with only justifiable force used as a defense against those who would violate individual rights.
civilzenship, nationally and forming their own contracts. To be able to operate the government or to do business or have a peaceful society where everyone's rights are respected depends on others living up to their choices according to their consensual agreements. In a free society, individuals are judged to be honest, innocent and capable of being responsible for themselves and to others.
immorality and crimes, because the political cartel undermines personal responsibility.
such as marriage, family and the personal respect civilized people should pay to each other. In a free society other people count on you to do as you promise, to live up to your marriage vows, to keep promises to your children, all business is conducted by contract, upon which others depend on you to abide, social rules are by choice, the government you enter into that allows people to organize all of these complex activities must be by choice.
licensing out what they call the "right" to do things, such as, to start a business, engage in a profession or get married.
a citizen of the state is synonymous with being a slave, an entity that claims
ownership of you at birth, they control you throughout your life, they tell you
what you may and may not put into your own body, censor your speech, they
regulate private sexual activity as though humans are barnyard animals, they
decide what kind of education you will receive, how you run your business, they
steal your money and force you to support things that are against your most
basic moral and religious beliefs. They keep people from founding consensual
governments and their own civil societies which must be freely chosen
associations to be just and in living by their own chosen nationality which is a
private cultural matter just as is their religion; and by denying people the
liberty to form and support their own police and defense that actually defends
their rights and not some cartel of gangsters.
Most contemptible is declaring that the only crimes are an offense against The State, (the only real crimes are against persons, for there to be a crime there must be victim). By assuming that all crimes are against The State it degrades human beings to the level of property, that a crime against a human life isn't a crime against a human being but it's considered a crime against The State because someone dared to damage their property. That's why they don't care about restitution to the victim, instead The State just uses the crime to further rob the victim of more tax money to pay for the crimes of the guilty; in a just government the entitlement to restitution belongs to the victim. When a person is the victim of a crime the criminal isn't made to pay for the crime, the victim is. In fact, the victim pays over and over many times, first in being forced to pay to support a government that is imposed on them and being forced to pay for the bill to the police for the actions of criminals and in having to pay for the criminals court costs and incarceration and on top of all of that the victim is denied the ability to get restitution from the criminal. This racket has the affect of denying people legitimate government and responsible police who protect peoples' rights without stealing from them and who collect their incomes from the criminals they catch and force to pay restitution as well as fines and from security insurance and security investments.
It's the conceit of The State claiming ownership of people's lives that makes it evil, that claim extends to the ownership of the person, they claim ownership of your body, you're judged to be incapable of deciding what to put into your own body, they presume you're not responsible enough to run your own business yourself so they tell you how to do it. Your money is not really your own, as a subject you are a serf who has to hand over whatever The State wants and are allowed to keep only whatever The State thinks you need to have to be productive and contented enough not to revolt. Their proprietary claims extend to ownership of society; with whom you associate, by what values you live; this can't continue, either The State must be destroyed or it will destroy the ability of humans to function as freely thinking personally responsible beings.
There is absolutely no justification for the existence of any State or for the imposition of any taxes or invasive regulations. All services that are provided by a "government" can and must be provided voluntarily as a service to people who actually want them and are willing to pay for it. The usual excuse statists give for taxes is that they are necessary to pay for the police and defense, which is just another name for being forced to pay off a protection racket which denies a person legitimate government, security and self defense.
Invasive regulations are confiscation of personal property, any need for any conceivable type of regulation can be provided voluntarily and internally by the business or industry which provides the product to the consumers as a service.
For people who are poor, unemployed, homeless or in ill health there are better, more effective and most importantly, more just ways of helping them while respecting everyone's rights, The State uses poor people to entrap them in the socialist welfare system to perpetuate a dependency on The State while using them to steal from others. The way to help people, if you really want to help them, (the socialists don't want to really help them, they want to use them to increase the power of The State over people's lives), is to develop systems of opportunities that allow people to help themselves without putting a burden on others in a way that develops independence and puts people on the road to pursuing their dreams on their own.
dependencies on The State.
Living under The State is intolerable and all-intrusive, the kind of society that they create is so immoral that you can't turn on a television or pick up a newspaper without hearing someone threaten your life, rights or property with the use of political violence to get what they want. It seems that violence, theft, force and coercion is a way of life, it is an obsession, people constantly think on how to use these tactics to gain more power over others to get what they want instead of thinking about how to do things honestly to accomplish goals and serve others while respecting people's rights. They don't think about how to work consensually with people to solve problems and provide what people want, they only seem to think of how they can use problems to gain more power. All of this is a culture of criminality, crimes against human rights are committed at all levels and at all times by politicians, business people or others who are involved in politics or those who simply look to and support The State to solve their problems and give them what they want.
passport to leave the country; (a passport is permission from your owner to leave your own country) they use the passport to keep track of their property, so if the slave gets a job in another country then their masters can claim a share of the earnings, just like slaves who were hired out as sharecroppers. This restriction on travel has lead to many abuses against human rights, refugees are kept in areas of war were many are persecuted for their politics, ethnicity or religion; some are imprisoned and murdered. All Political-States who refuse to allow freedom of travel are accessories to these crimes against humanity. Keeping slaves in and the aliens out is an orderly way for the world system of Feudal-States to assign property rights among themselves with human beings as the property.
political system turns people against each other.
ultimate evil of The State is summed up in the phrase that they use to justify
the taking of power in their fraudulent justice system, it is; the standard of
determination, that The State can assume any right or power to do anything it
wants, if it can show a compelling State interest.
the world political feudal system is necessary for the preservation of The
a free country" is sold in the package of "democracy", which is considered to be the most highly advanced form of government. So deeply ingrained is this superstition that the highest aspirations for human advancement are promised by the ideologues who rationalize or sanctify their system of parasitism; institutionalized robbery, slavery and murder is masked in the shroud of "democracy", "national interests", "public service", "welfare" and other euphemisms. The subjects must be kept under control, "law and order", by internal police and spies. With the direct State control of the media, or in some countries with the support of the media which is largely run by big corporations who are also military contractors and among the most powerful of special interest groups; they control and shape public opinion so that most people begin to think in the herd mentality under the direction of the media. Serious dissenters against The State are censored out of any public media or debate and ridiculed as extremists, a wacko fringe group and are unjustly linked with terrorists or racists. With their heard of subjects able to exert peer pressure, both social and economic, there are few individuals with the strength and courage to stand up against such widespread oppression as is found in the most comprehensively tyrannical of societies, that of a democracy. For those individuals who would dare to live freely on one's own property and conduct true free enterprise business instead of submitting what they produce to overlords, the democratic society is just as evil as any dictatorship in imprisoning or murdering people who would dare to keep their own money and resist violent extortion. When the politicians and their lackeys, democratic or otherwise, come to rob and kill people who are recalcitrant, they are nothing but armed robbers and murderers, their office makes them no different than a street thief, except in the minds of the slaves who have been hypnotized by the power of The State to submit unquestioningly; they accept the master-slave relationship as the natural order of things. The State becomes dominated by subservient people who were attracted to the service of power.
When The State speaks of freedom they mean the license for them to get away with anything they want, their idea of a free country means the license for a tyrannical mob to get away with committing crimes against natural human rights law. Anybody who thinks that their Nation State is a free country is a damn fool. Their country is an arbitrary and artificial identity, no country as an artificial person can be free, only individuals who exercise their inherent freedom are free. It could be said that a country of individuals are free where people live and respect individual sovereignty and self-government, but no such places exists today. What is most infuriating is when the foolish supporters of The State brag that their criminal cartel is a free country, damn them and their country to hell. That statement is most contemptuous of real human freedom and presumes people to be as stupid as they are in believing that a cartel that seizes control of people's lives, bodies, property and steals their money and claims the right to force people to do anything that is in the compelling interest of The State, is a free country. A statement as ignorant as that can only continue to be perpetuated in a society of people who have been so completely brainwashed that they don't understand any concept of freedom or individual rights and will accept whatever they are told by those who control public opinion.
Their claiming that their artificial entity is a free country is a statement of their monumental arrogance, that you don't even believe in freedom or understand it; that they regard their freedom as a license to continue violating the natural rights of humanity and continue getting away with it.

after selfish interests only want to use their power to benefit themselves and
any interest they happen to represent, but the collective idealistic, the
patriot and the statesman, are the most dangerous, destructive and evil of all.
It is these fools who insanely attributes virtue to serving the artificially
personified idol of The State or nation. They think that personal rights and
identity are bound up in the collective nation, (nations have no rights, they
are merely an arbitrary cultural identification that some individuals choose to
accept). Maniacs who commit mass murder and call it patriotism to serve their
nation are mentally deranged. They are the ones who are more malleable and
servile and have been molded through a lifetime of brainwashing to believe in
the artificial deity of the nation-state. To these wackos, there is no atrocity
too extreme when it is to serve the "nation", which is to serve a fantasy.
Cultural similarities between people living in a certain area may be called a

who says that it is the mandatory obligation of all citizens to do their duty in
service to the community or nation for the collective good is declaring
citizenship to be slavery; no community, nation or government can justify its
own existence that uses slavery and those who promote this intolerable evil are
at war against sovereign humanity. We must organize a universal human rights
defense to fight and kill these enemies of humanity. We have a moral obligation
to ourselves and humanity to go to war against the enemies of freedom, the only
thing the Statists understand is force. These vermin like to promote State
conscription to make other stupid automatons like themselves slaves to serve the
hollow worthless idol of the cult of The State, which is their god, and force
them to commit atrocious crimes against humanity. These cowardly pieces of
garbage that are a disgrace to the human species who are supposed to be

run the military-state and wage cowardly wars against mostly defenseless
civilians for political gain and egotistical nationalistic
The State projects the image of a self-perpetuating institution of indivisible strength, upon whose benevolence the people depend. In fact, the opposite is true; government rests upon the support of people. Without their support, it becomes fragile and will eventually disintegrate. A government is no more powerful than the individuals whose skills, knowledge, and collective power are exerted together either as a just consensual government or as a conspiratory mob who imposes its will on others and forces them to obey their idiotic illusionary concept of the nation-state. The State has no resources of its own. Every law it maintains is enforced by individuals. Every tax is a theft of an individual's private property. Their concept of the nation-state is in truth the legitimizing of the concept of might makes right. That the illusions of the nationality of the strongest group must be imposed on everyone for them to continue to live within the illusion. People must wake up to the fact that the nation-state is nothing but a group of individuals conspiring together to commit crimes against the basic human rights of other individuals who have not consented to accept what other's wish to impose on them. The tyrants who wear the uniforms and playact their rituals of nationalism are but individuals, who must live in a world and interact with other individuals and depend on others to continue to respect their right to live and function. Imposed government can only continue to work, not by brute force, but by fooling the people into accepting the illusionary concepts of those in power, for those individuals who rule have no more advantage over their victims than the acceptance by the victims of the rulers concepts, it is by this advantage that presumed legitimacy is given by the subjects to the rulers by which they have maintained the power to dominate and destroy. The State's only real resource is it's subjects, they are its lifeblood and since The State is only a parasite dependent on the productivity of others, all it takes to bring the system down is to educate people in how to live free and govern society without The State.
