Is "the state" our enemy?
I am seeing a growing trend of antipathy towards "the state".
This is coming from all sides of political discourse. But Mostly, none of it is qualified by what this "state" is.
I find that confusing.
I assumed that "the state" was a collection of "us" and that the "democracy" we support is simply a process of having representatives make laws which we agree to obey ..
SO .. let's have a look!
Is our state antithetical to our own agreement?
Please let me know what you think the "state" is and why it is your enemy?
If we can get some kind of understanding for that, then we might be able to advise our representatives. We vote for them after all .. is that just "entertainment"? Or is it real?
