I’m a prisoner

During discussions about the system of enslavement (‘Statism’) that is currently implemented worldwide, one of the things that’s often brought up by others is the question of why I’m making use of things (facilities, services, etc.) inside this system while I am opposed to it. That would seem hypocritical upon first glance, and this question, often phrased in a variety of ways, is a very valid question.

The primary reason for this is that I’m a prisoner of this system (just like most people living on Earth today, whether they realize it or not). Much like the famous president from Uruguay, Jose Mujica, explained:

I can’t fix this as a government. I’m a prisoner of this myself. […] It’s crazy, unjust. I oppose that world. But I’m a prisoner of that world.

Consider what would happen if a group of people would one day kidnap you and place you inside their prison. You might be opposed to this group of people and their ideology, but while you’re forced to live inside their prison, you’d have no choice but to make use of the facilities that they provide you. You’d even have no choice but to eat the food that they give you. Someone might say: “Hey, you oppose these people and their prison system, but you’re eating their food and using their facilities! You’re a hypocrite!” But I’m sure you can see how that would not be a fair assessment of the situation. And that’s because you’re not inside their prison out of your own free will, but they are keeping you there by force, and you have no choice but to make use of their facilities and eat their food if you want to stay alive.

That’s the same situation I find myself in today on the plantation (‘country’) where I was born. The owners of the plantation consider me to be their property (i.e. slave) simply because I was born on a large piece of land that they claim to own, after having stolen it in the past. I oppose their system of enslavement, but I’m currently a prisoner of that system. The system forces itself on me; I’m being held hostage; my right to life is being violated. The slave masters and their overseers in the criminal government force me to comply with whatever they want on ‘their’ land. For example, I might not want to contribute to all of their crimes with my labor and my income, but they force me to contribute via ‘taxation,’ threatening to punish me if I refuse to comply. Via income taxation, they confiscate part of my income and use it to fund their criminal enterprise. I might not want to stay in their prison, but I have nowhere else to go. All ‘countries’ in the world today have basically implemented the same system of enslavement. If I can manage to cross the border without permission (i.e. a ‘passport’ and a ‘visa’) of the slave masters and escape to another plantation, I’d basically have gone from one prison to another. If I move to an isolated area inside the prison I’m currently in, for example to the interior to live “off-the-grid” (and this is already ‘illegal’ on some plantations today), it’ll be just a matter of time before representatives of the criminal government will be at my doorstep again with their demands. Like I wrote before, “you can run, but you can’t hide.”

Of course there’s a lot that you can do to try to minimize contributing to the system as much as possible, and I have taken steps to minimize my contribution. For example, I’ve stopped working directly for the criminal government and related organizations back in 2015. And I’m constantly looking for new ways to stop contributing. But there’s a limit to how much you can stop contributing while you’re living inside their prison, unless you consider suicide to be an option.
