Hate Taxes, Government, Regulations and Gun Control: Move to Somalia Now

I keep trying to get anti-state anarchists aka anti-state conservatives to have some sort of debate, but they must be very shy. Anyway, here’s a humorous message to them, but with a serious side: if you have a pathological hatred of any form of government, if you are immune to the conservative philosopher Thomas Hobbes’ argument that without a state to keep order, the life of man is ‘nasty, brutish and short’, you might like to note that Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world, reflecting its violent, failed-state situation, and male life expectancy there is 48. Indeed for many life is indeed ‘nasty, brutish  and short’, but hey, they’ve go no taxes, government, regulations or gun control. Some think the latter is the cause of the former. So go see. Enjoy:

    The cartoon is optimistic–a power line!
