Truth in Advertising

I often make my lefty friends angry, when I say that force and coercion are the distinguishing features of government. Ultimately, both good laws bad laws are enforced by men with guns, and we are forced to obey. The men, and the guns, don't care whether the laws are good or not.

My friends deny this, and say that in fact obedience is something we all WANT to do, because it makes us happy. And all laws must be good, because government wants what is good for us.

The state of Pennsylvania has abandoned the pretense. Well done, PA.

One of the major take-home points of my Principles of Microeconomics course is that government is the people who, if you don't do what they say, throw you in jail, and if you try to get out of jail, they shoot you. Doesn't mean governments can never do good things, but everything they do is backed by the power of the gun.

Well with no government, force and coercion would govern in a state of anarchy.
