In keeping with your style of writing...

It shouldn't be that hard for people to see that politics is the tool of sociopaths who only seek self aggrandizement and power over other human beings. It shouldn't be that difficult for people to see that the goals of a standing president, regardless his political label, are based wholly on self interest. It shouldn't be that difficult for people to see that the US constitution was written and signed by a tiny minority of people without the informed consent of every person over whom the contract document claims authority. It shouldn't be that difficult for people to understand that no legal contract obligates in any way, the posterity of those who sign it. It shouldn't be that hard for people to understand that social contracts rely solely on the passive acceptance of those being ruled by them, as they are mere concepts and not actual contract documents to which individuals are free to sign or not sign. It shouldn't be that hard for people to realize that if they distrust their fellow human beings, giving a small minority of those untrusted human beings a monopoly on the violation of their property is counterintuitive at best.

I forgot, you are the resident anarchist right?

Good luck with your delusion that the absence of government is a plausible ideology, or that it would even be ideal.

Why would I wish you luck? Well, it is just a nice thing to say.

That's nice of you. Why do you say that humans interacting voluntarily is a delusion? I'm assuming you mean that we will never be able to interact voluntarily and, I inferred that you don't think it's a good idea for humans to interact voluntarily. That's really where my curiosity was piqued.
