One of the greatest appeals of the State is to appear to produce wealth without the effort and resources necessary for wealth creation. If the State offers you something for “free” check your wallet or the future debt of your progeny and you will realize you have been shamefully pilfered and bamboozled. There is no such thing as a free lunch. In order to provide something to you for “free” the State must first have coercively taken from you. Then it flamboyantly displays your stolen goods for all to see as if to proclaim it as being the origin of matter itself.
Make no mistake, the State is as affable to the productive and industrious as tick is to the host on which it is fastened. Calling theft as taxation, mass murder as the War on Terror, the war on people as the War on Drugs, mass spying as surveillance, and mass indoctrination as public education does nothing to alter the original definition of the words. One must observe the effect of actions in order to understand their true nature. Political euphemisms permeate our landscape and infect our thinking as effectively as a scourge wreaks misery on the people. We mature as a people when we cease believing political actions solve any of our problems. Only the individual acts! Only the individual thinks! Only the individual loves! Merry Christmas!
