The American State is a slave-state, and like every other State in history it is at war against the people it governs. It is still a criminal institution, regardless of how democratic or kinder and gentler it appears to be. Regardless of how much better living conditions may be in the U.S., we should never lose sight of the fact that the lesser of two evils is still evil. The State may not have to use armed might and force to control us simply because it has been more successful (than many other governments) in capturing our minds, and, thus, enslaving us. As Ayn Rand once asked, "What is my life, if I am but to bow, agree, and to obey?" If we are enslaved, what difference in principle does it make who is our master? A State is a State is a State,
regardless by whom, or where, or how its decisions are made and enforced.
