Giving Up, Sort Of

I have decided that I no longer expect that my libertarian ideals will ever be put into practice in my lifetime. When the KIngdom of Heaven is realized in its totality (and this could be trillions of years in the future) there will be perfect freedom and self government. For the immediate future, we are stuck with states or some yet to be invented meme complex that will supplant states as bases for social and symbolic control.

I'm still going to problematize the state and deny its legitimacy and try to evade its reach whenever I can, but I no longer expect anyone to pay me any heed when I do so, except for the secret and not so secret police.

That's a load off my mind.
