The End of Oppression - Part 2: The Game

"The End of Oppression" is a six-part series of videos which show what it will take for humanity to finally outgrow and escape its long history of violence and oppression.

Part Two ("The Game") shows how tyrants use the game called "politics" to legitimize violent domination and to deceive decent people into advocating their own subjugation and enslavement.-

Quote of the Day: Diversity

“People prefer to be with people like themselves. For all the celebration of ‘diversity,’ it’s sameness that dominates. Most people favor friendship with those who have similar backgrounds, interests and values. It makes for more shared experiences, easier conversations, and more comfortable silences. Despite many exceptions, the urge is nearly universal. It’s human nature.” - Robert J. Samuelson

Anarchist Quote of the Day

As a libertarian anarchist, I am pressed from time to time to defend anarchy against those who dispute its desirability or its feasibility. But, really, why should I be the one who must defend this condition (that is, the absence of rulers)? I live in a world in which gangs of total strangers -- people I do not know, people who do not know me, people I want nothing to do with -- presume to order me about in countless ways and to strip me of my wealth at their pleasure, putting the plunder to uses that in many cases I consider utterly abhorrent and achieving this domination over me only by making credible threats to bring violence to bear against me should I resist their impositions. THAT outrageous complex of actions, not my embrace of anarchy, is the condition that requires a defense. Strange to say, although the prevailing rulers' insolence and moral arrogance rise to horrifying heights, many of their victims take completely for granted the legitimacy of the degrading and exploitative setup under which they live -- Stockholm syndrome writ large.-Robert Higgs
