Albert Jay Nock Quote

“It can not even be said that the State has ever shown any disposition to suppress crime, but only to safeguard its own monopoly of crime.”

It is not a duty of government to suppress crime. At natural and Constitutional law, law enforcement is an oxymoron. It is the Sheriff's job to act as an agent of justice. Is the imposition of justice a disposition to suppress crime? It can be for some people, on certain occasions. The narrow band of authority for which Sheriffs may legally act at law is life, liberty, and property. Any government action taken to suppress crime is a crime. The extremely corrupt occupying statist theocracy infesting this land safeguards its monopoly of crime with extreme force. Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin has Amreicans murdered at will with out trial - with no consequences - for example.

So are the ways of everyone that is greedy of gain;
which taketh away the life of the owners thereof. ref: Rock.
We are at liberty to be good, not bad.
Therefore honesty, honor and charity of mind also lending to the poor and needy wanting nothing in return which removes the yoke of bondage means nothing to them..
They are all foxes . Sly !
Our Constitution is not a respecter of persons and nether is God, our inspiration !
More than any other people of the world we have the right
to glory in the invisible hand of God upon this nation. George Washington revealing his knowledge at his inauguration.
I am here to let you know that it is attached to a mighty right
arm. And it will be revealed before nations.
The tools of Wisdom and Understanding are brandished
through symbolism before all the world, yet they know not how to use them. Corruption in the highest degree.
Took only one man to have the key for the rest to know there is a house and it is built upon the rock !
Sly foxes they are !

Nock is absolutely right again. And the people have NO idea the extent to which they have been robbed because the state uses its power to keep the racket going.

Today's feeble facade of addressing censorship and more loss of liberty, the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land empowers its corporations, banks, etc. to grow in their criminal enslavement of "We" the individual sovereigns.

That being the case the state has never been in the natural human condition because human beings are by nature law abiding. That being the case then the enemy of the state is logically our friend.  You are our enemy  logically and the Socialist is our friend logically

Sillik, to your false ad hominems and other erroneous statements. Did you take into notice my reference to the latest political arrangement, 3 years ago  that my here reference did no include either capitalism or republicanism? Socialists and their theocratic enslavement (socialism) is a mental illness that is destructive to every individual sovereign, love, truth, the nobility of the specie, inalienable rights, liberty, nature's law and justice. As to the quote, socialism is a criminal religion that uniquely consists of mentally ill criminals who's only ambition is to lie, control and safeguard its own monopoly of crime.
