According to an excellent article on The Intercept we should all declare our independence from all of the world’s “leaders” as soon as possible. Everything in that article is in line with what I’ve written in my posts “Statism: A System for your Enslavement” and “Politics: An Exercise in Futility”. Here are some quotes:
WHEN IN THE Course of human events, it becomes necessary for the Sane People of this Planet to dissolve the political bands that have connected them with their Leaders, and to give getting along without Leaders a real Shot, courtesy requires that we should declare the causes of this long-overdue separation, just so we’re all on the same page.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that Leaders are a pretty dodgy proposition — that even the best ones are Self-Absorbed Prima Donnas, and the rest are seriously Craze-o Lunatics.
