Thanks but the biggest mass murderer by far is government, nothing else comes close. Ref: https://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/MURDER.HTM . Governments and politicians like to take credit for good trends when those trends may not have come about because of government.

I mentioned the idea of anarchy with regard to your statement about humans thinking they know better than those involved trying to control them. The politicians make decisions for us that do not affect them. They don’t truly have skin in the game.

I think that our impasse comes to a difference in opinion on benefit/harm from politicians and their inclination to impose their will upon individuals. I’d like a bit less of it than you appear to be willing to submit to.

When Mao said that all political power comes from the barrel of a gun he wasn’t just talking about China. When the government helps you there is always a gun on the table.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
