36 Comments on Government Is The Biggest Threat To Humanity with Mike Maloney

    • If you can get enough folks to say ‘boo’ to it (never be a majority but even a small but resolute minority will do), it’ll slime off in terror, no lighter needed. These so-called ‘elites’ aren’t supermen, omniscient, or omnipotent. They’re just practiced in scamming ordinary non-sociopathic people who just want to live and let live.

  1. Mike’s close, but he’s still consenting to violent, spendy, and untrustworthy middlemen by accepting that the functions he listed that government is _supposed_ to do can’t be done many times better by genuinely private companies. Walter Block, Tom Woods, and others from the Mises Institute along with you, Jeff, have discussed this ad nauseum and I was convinced by their solid ideas decades ago. Like the old cliche goes, what’s the difference between a libertarian/minarchist and an anarchist? About six months (and that’s if they’re slow, thinks I).

  2. Love ya’ Mike, but I guess you haven’t figured out that Trump
    is trying to crash the economy ON PURPOSE.
    Fiat is going away, this is not a new concept to you.
    Exactly how did you think this was going to happen ??

  3. Government is a parasite and banks are too. All on the backs of hard working men and woman. If satan and evil is real, they come in the form of war, taxes, fear and control….

    • As Larken puts it …
      “You are not Christians. You are not Jews. You are not Muslims. And you certainly aren’t atheists. You all have the same god, and its name is ‘government.’ You’re all members of the most evil, insane, destructive cult in history. If there ever was a devil, the state is it. And you worship it with all your heart and soul.”
      ― Larken Rose, The Iron Web

    • It’s a pleasure hearing you publicly declare yourself as a friend of individual liberty. Leaders are fine; rulers are not. Rulers have special protections and double standards under the law. Voluntaryists seek governance without government and rules without rulers. The difference is whether there is impartiality under the law or not. Governments are not needed to defend a people from invading armies. That is what a voluntary militia is for. Check out Virginia’s Declaration of Rights, Section 13, for further details. Peace, love, and anarchy to you both, friends!

    • GoldSilver (w/ Mike Maloney)

      Do you have a second, personal account?

      The reason I ask is you’re the second Mike Maloney I’ve ran across on YouTube comments.

  4. Great video. However, people are not good. People are evil! “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9. Humans being evil is, in fact, why those governments are so evil.

    • Gary Geiser

      Man is neither good or evil.

      He is programmable which is why the ruling class has always worked to control information and be the programmers.

      GIGO – garbage in, garbage out.

      Mark Passio covers this in his Natural Law seminar.

      Worth the watch.

  5. The only problem with the word chaos is that its definition is assumed by propagandized people. Through the use of word pairing, which creates associative modeling of how we mentally perceive it. Dig into the etymology of the word and you’ll find that ~chaos~ like “Luck” is good or bad depending upon circumstance, but we are terrorized and threatened to associate chaos with ‘destruction’ and ‘violence’ when it does not infer that in the least. That is the lexicon of a pro-terrorism culture. Chaos means the expanse of emptiness, a gaping chasm (as opposed to a top to bottom pyramid of crushing oppression), chaos means the abyss, chance, random happenstance, chaos is the randomness that cannot be escaped which occurs naturally in the universe to create harmony. Chaos IS Anarchy, philosophically because it represents an empty throne, no leaders, no slaves. I get so tired of hearing chaos blamed for the trouble with defining anarchy. Chaos is not destruction and violence, just like order does not mean peace and harmony, what is “government” but built in order which brings corruption, absolving chaos of the true blame, while masking it as the blame worthy cause of any and all corruption and failure of ~ordered~ society. People blaming chaos for the failure of anarchy as a political movement, irritates the hell out of me, because anarchy is NOT a POLITICAL movement, it is not meant to polarize, draw a line between, create a distinction, divide by a ruler, separate by distinction and state-us, putting mankind under the yoke of an overseer/ruler. Terrorism does that, politics functions upon exploiting built in bias’s and eliminating social trust. The message behind all government brainwashing is this, “these people are not your friends, but don’t worry so long as there is governmental “order”. It is a fundamental lack of faith, not an exercise of faithless bigotry and order worship, transplanting the philosophically defined god with the incorporation of belief without evidence [God], order is ~good~ and anything left to luck is “chaos and destruction” against [God] or religion. [government and religion] *(the philosophical definition of god as I present it is: that which cannot be proven or dis-proven to exist, basically something that you can point towards without providing evidence in conversation, which can be understood, but not used to justify moral distinctions)

  6. Police were never intended to protect people. They were formed from gangs to keep ethnic groups like the Irish and Italians in line and out of certain urban areas.

    • Daniel Earl

      They originated as slave catching patrols and years after the supposed end of slavery, their job hasn’t changed.

      They’re still catching slaves based on laws written by slave masters.

  7. “You are not Christians. You are not Jews. You are not Muslims. And you certainly aren’t atheists. You all have the same god, and its name is ‘government.’ You’re all members of the most evil, insane, destructive cult in history. If there ever was a devil, the state is it. And you worship it with all your heart and soul.”
    ― Larken Rose, The Iron Web

  8. I just watched a live stream of Gregory Mannarino, and he asked the chat what the purpose of government was. He basically outed himself as a friend with his answer. Maybe consider having him on as a guest?

  9. “People are good”? Hmmm…I wonder. I do want to believe that. I’m reminded of the “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. In the “niced-up version”, the small boy cries out, “Why is the Emperor naked?” The crowd hears him, realizes he’s telling the truth, and comes out of its delusion. In the original version? The crowd (good people?) turns on the boy…and beats him…to death.
