0 Preface – A Natural State

Why should we believe the top-down state to be a necessary evil, assuming society would collapse without central control underwritten by a forceful hand? Wars, taxes and corrupt politicians are assumed to be a natural part of the human lot – an inevitable accompaniment to civilization. In this book’s Preface, I point out that we have experienced countless variations of the state, from pharaohs to parliaments, from popes to presidents, and keep hoping the next variation will get it right – vainly.  Perhaps we are not all natural-born killers and need not fight and kill each other to maintain a status quo that thrives on strife. Perhaps living in peace and harmony with each other, and our planet, is an easier and more natural condition than that we experience today.
