"Every law and regulation is based on coercion. If you disobey The State's dictates then eventually people with guns will arrive to compel you to comply. If you continue to resist then The State's agents will use violence against you to subdue you and punish you. They may even kill you. Only two groups behave this way. Criminals and those who work for The State. But unlike criminal gangs, The State is a massive monopoly, with little to constrain it within the territory it controls. For this reason it should not be surprising to learn that The State has murdered more people throughout history than all individual criminals combined." (12/19/10)
