    Hey, what do you think of this: What is the essence of Politics?
    Politics is basically misdirection. They distract the public's attention one way, so they can carry out their dirty deeds 'undetected'. They don't fool me though.

    Politicians are ALL liars. They are supposed to be the heads of society, but they lie to us and then they wonder why there is so much crime in society. How can they expect society to be honest when they are lying scum themselves?

    I'm a libertarian/anarchist myself. I don't have faith in politicians at all. Governments create more problems than they solve.

    I believe in the power of the individual over the power of 'establishment'.

    What are governments anyway other than a bunch of people who got together to try and control society so they can carry out their own selfish dirty work. **** all of them.
