Government Is A Parasite


“I really don’t understand what is your proposition with the Peaceful Anarchy page. Going back to tribal societies?”

No I am not a Primitivist or Luddite. I do not think civilization or technology is the problem. Indeed I believe it is no coincidence that both of these magnificent things have developed in conjunction with each other throughout the epochs. The comforts of modern day civilization are the direct result of entrepreneurs and creative inventors who, through the use of their superior imaginations, have solved many of the basic problems that have plagued our ancestors for time immemorial. We have slowly developed the ability to grow and store more food, improved our health and longevity through improvements in medicine, sanitation, and sewage treatment, live in more advanced dwellings, insulated ourselves from the elements with good quality cheap clothes and shoes, and increased our ability to travel to distant locations with machines such as cars, helicopters, and planes.

Keep in mind these are all the results of peaceful individuals engaging in consensual and voluntary trade AKA Free Market Capitalism. This has absolutely nothing to do with the group of bureaucratic parasites and violent sociopaths who form the entity known as “government”. By definition parasites can only exist when there is wealth and productivity from which to derive their nourishment. They produce nothing themselves and would immediately die should there be a lack of foodstuffs for them to feast on.

I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means – except by getting off his back.

About Danilo

A practitioner of Eastern Healing arts with degrees in Acupuncture and Chinese medicinal herbs, I have always questioned the status quo, a path which led me to peaceful anarchism. Through my journey, I have worn many hats, that of a classical pianist, avid chess player, philosopher, comedian, and now father of two little anarchists. My wife brands me as a Cultural Critic, but I am simply following my thirst for knowledge and passion for writing.
