Marc Stevens - Government Violence & The Stockholm Syndrome
October 9, 2013
Marc Stevens is a voluntaryist, essayist and the host of The No State Project. He is the author of Government: Indicted and Adventures in Legal Land, a lawyer-upsetting people-helping book. He'll discuss how there is no rational basis for government. Marc explains how believing in government is the worship of psychopaths. We discuss how although government is a lying, killing, vile institution that defies the non aggression principle, people still fail to apply critical thinking skills and see government for what it is. Marc speaks about engaging with government agents and the lies they tell. Later in the first hour, we talk about the Constitution of the U.S. which many put their trust in. In the member's hour, Marc explains our "battered citizen syndrome" relationship with government and how they have infested every aspect of our lives. He'll give his position on what is required to neutralize the attack and rid the parasitic forces at play. Then, we'll get into government mandated licenses, permits and fees. Marc speaks about rejecting government programming, as the programming makes it possible for a few to control the world. We'll also talk about how the mentality of the people would change after government collapsed. Later, we address the human idea of rights. Can you prove you have rights? The hour ends discussing circular arguments he's encountered in court dealing with government agents and their lack of evidence proving their position. "The code applies because the code says so."

Toxic Relationship
It's been a lifelong dis-ease with this creepy entity called government and its many tentacles. It is a relief to find more and more people examining the scam and its coercive underbelly and that the unsettling feeling I've had from childhood with regards authorities was well-founded. The frightening reality that these unfeeling agents of state, education, police, judicial etc can do me great harm for living free and with dignity. And all the while claiming that they do so for my own good. It is a toxic relationship and the individual must choose to begin its dissolution. Marc's lucidity and humour were refreshing. Thanks to all involved.

What a driven man. Excellent foot work, brilliant wording and willing to persist for momentum. Not bad at all.

I holeheartedly agree with his term that if we undo the concept of govern-mind we will experience more freedom, but at the cost of less afraid perpetrators.

On the Stockholm Syndrome..:

What is the most that you can give?

Wait a minute, then answer again.

No, that's not it either. You don't no how deep you can go until you're there and the fact that you can anyway, is so terrifying you'll probably have suppressed the mental image I cradle at present, of that man alone on a hill in the desert, with a boulder on his arm and only a dull pocket knife in his pocket. That's why we get the freak shows we do and that's why some will keep loving the person when they get out of that box. To share something so numinous, so intimate, so powerful as that can be, is something you can't ever forget. You will be Chang-ed (big-head) and the change can, no - must give you a greater sense of power. If not, then your biological functions, will be over rided by the adrenaline forcing it's way through neuronic pathways so finely attuned at a speed that makes the alternative, any alternative, a preferrable one to the part of your brain that is most delicately connected with the seratonines holding the grandest emotions at bay. It's literally freak or dire.
