It always amazes me how often this government slaughters and kills innocent people even after the Declaration of Independence said, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
For example, the US government passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830 to force thousands of Native Americans off their land so the government could settle the Southeastern United States. This event included the removal of several tribes including the Cherokee, Muskogee, and Seminole Tribes. Nearly 4 thousand Native Americans perished fleeing their ancestral homes.
Human trafficking was used as a mechanism to wage economic warfare against other countries. The US government only outlawed chattel slavery after over 100 years in order to destroy the economy of another country.
The US government also forcibly invaded a sovereign nation during the mid 1800’s to prevent millions of people from seceding from its governance. During what was known as the Civil War, thousands of innocent civilians had their property and land ruined by the invading US army. The greatest atrocities were committed by William Tecumseh Sherman, whose army raped and murdered many hundreds of innocent people.
Just in case you believe that the Civil War was fought to save African Americans from slavery, you should read Abraham Lincoln‘s true thoughts on the matter in his letter to Horace Greely where Lincoln makes it perfectly clear that he wouldn’t outlaw slavery if he could get away with it.
“My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy Slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.”
August 22nd, 1862. There are many other quotes on this topic.
The United States government committed mass murder on Japanese people in World War II. A Colorado.edu document proves that Japan sued for peace before the Atomic bombs were ever dropped. Despite this, President Truman ordered the bombs to be dropped on hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and children even though he didn’t need to in order to defeat Japan. I don’t know why people would revere an action and defend it if it meant millions of people would be killed for no reason.
- “[T]he use of this barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender. . . .”
- ~ Admiral William D. Leahy
Today, the government continues to constantly drop bombs on foreign nations in the Middle East and Africa to expand the American Empire at the cost of lives, family, and property.
Murder, theft, robbery, taxation, and extortion cannot be justified by saying some politicians wrote a law to make it OK. If more people were to actually watch independent journalism and read about history there would be far more anarchists like myself.
I know that most people believe our government is a good government and keeps us safe, provides for the poor, etc. I believe most people want a society that provides for the poor and protects the innocent. I also believe most people haven’t studied economics or history very much.
There is one thing people should think about after reading this: Capitalism and private enterprise has given us answers to many of life’s problems. They’ve provided us with greater living standards, food surpluses, portable computers, handheld weaponry, and modern medicine. Capitalism has done incredible things for our society.
Do we really need the government to tell us what to do? People will say, “The government does a lot of good. They help the poor with their problems and protect us from the bad guys!”
I ask, do you need a government to do these things? Do you need someone to handle your money to get it where it needs to be? Can we not donate our money to say, charity organizations that we know on a local level and can hold accountable?
Why is it that the politicians always have fancy yachts and private jets? Why is it that the military industrial complex has money to develop fancy new toys? With what the military spends on developing new aircraft, you could end homelessness in America. There’s a problem here. We have no need for states or governmental monopolies over property. There wasn’t before, and there isn’t now.
