«Without order there is chaos.»
We've been brainwashed by officials of religions and governments to believe that chaos is a negative thing. All things are already within chaos, only our rulers have made order out of the chaos to confine and control us with laws and rules.
The truth is, nobody knows why we are here or where we are going. And as Timothy Leary said, and I'm paraphrasing here, the officials of religion and government are just trying to comfort us by making rules and regulations. And in the process, they've become ardently obsessed with power, if you ask me. «To think for yourself you must question authority.»
As for my opinion of the government, I believe Pierre-Joseph Proudhon summed it up nicely : «To be governed is to be watched over, inspected, spied on, directed, legislated, regimented, closed in, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, assessed, evaluated, censored, commanded; all by creatures that have neither the right, nor wisdom, nor virtue ... To be governed means that at every move, operation, or transaction one is noted, registered, entered in a census, taxed, stamped, priced, assessed, patented, licensed, authorized, recommended, admonished, prevented, reformed, set right, corrected. Government means to be subjected to tribute, trained, ransomed, exploited, monopolized, extorted, pressured, mystified, robbed; all in the name of the public utility and the general good. Then, at the first sign of resistance or word of complaint, one is repressed, fined, despised, vexed, pursued, hustled, beaten up, garroted, imprisoned, shot, machinegunned, judged, sentenced, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed, and to cap it all, ridiculed, mocked, outraged, and dishonored. That is government, that is its justice and its morality! ... O human personality! How can it be you have cowered in such subjection for sixty centuries?»
Someone said that people are too stupid to live without government. I believe that this is because we've been dumbed down by it for centuries. It is probably too late now to fix our world, but those of us who can see that there is something very wrong with it should be able to independently continue the evolution of our amazing human minds and personalities which government has tried so hard to repress.
