Stoller: Odd.

Don: Not when you realize that what I oppose is government use of force (except in defense from outside aggression, and as part of a minimal justice system). It does not matter to me if the government uses force to keep me from working, keep me working, or contribute to the benifit of widows and orphans. It's still force.

What world are you living in?

Government---or business, little difference---IS force, the force of one set of property relations upon another. To advocate a society where there exists no government is to advocate a classless society. But you're not doing that, are you?

According to your idealistic thinking, America should still be inhabited by the Native Americans and Mexicans. Are you advocating THAT? Or are you merely defending property relations AS THEY STAND NOW---after force has been used to set you up comfortably?
