The state is an exploiter, a murderer, a violator of human rights. The typical response of the left is to say that they want a state that only does good things, such as share and care, and not bad things, such as steal and kill, but this cannot be. We might as well wish for a lion that only purrs and cuddles or a rattlesnake that only provides percussive accompaniment to mariachi music.The very nature of the state is it exists only through and for compulsion. To imagine otherwise is to not face reality.
