- Nearly everyone is confused about what government is. Change that, and you can change a lot of things.
- Can anything possibly make government legitimate?
- Do we need both terms – government and The State – to fully make sense of the world?

- Clear labels are necessary for clear thinking.
- Why there are no liberals, conservatives, socialists, or progressives.

I was most “affirmative” with No.6 because I have long believed in clear, distinctive labels and the unifying noun “statist” captures what is anti-libertarian/voluntary about those “left” and “right” political “feelings” (never clearly defined anyway).
At best one could use “conservative” as an adjective for “Socialist” or for “Libertarian” to identify non-radicals in each group. “Liberal” is a label only to be applied to 19th century British politicians, and a few intellectuals around the world who agreed with them. Few Americans since Grover Cleveland have qualified.
The distinction between [legitimate] government and Statism is very important, since it clears away the “noise” surrounding “anarchism” and other utopian ideals of a society without authoritarians.
