Government power relies on violence and coercion, regardless of where and when.

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Government power relies on violence and coercion, regardless of where and when.

The author justly lambasts both the left and the right for playing favorites when it comes to the abuse of power by our federal government.

    Brilliant article! Although your description of it, only calls out the Feds. State and locals use force, just as often…

    I just had second thoughts about posting.

    I’m in Canada right now. Gota cross back tomorrow. The thought of getting persecuted as I crossed, gave me pause. So invasive is the fear they induce. But, I won’t be cowed.

    Wish me luck.

    All government is tyranny. It’s just a matter of degree. We form government to protect us from the tyranny of other governments. Taking power away from a central tyrant doesn’t make democracy a non tyranny… just a less focused one which is the best we can ask for.
