Convince me that humans have the right to initiate force and damage the usefulness of each other’s property.

Then convince me that government— the State– is the proper way to put this into action.

Convince me I’m wrong, or convince me that I’ve stated the problem incorrectly.

Really. Convince me. If I’m wrong, I want to know. I want to know why I’m wrong and how I’m wrong.

And here’s why: I don’t feel like a success. I’ve always been financially broke, even long before I embarked on making money (or trying to) through writing. If I weren’t wrong, I believe I might be (or feel) more of a success. I see those around me who embrace statism profiting greatly. I realize the sample is skewed since those are the only people around me.

No, I’m not jealous or envious, but I can’t help but see their success as a finger of accusation pointing right at me. Pointing out my shortcomings. And, I’m perfectly willing to accept that my problems might stem from some other personal flaw, having nothing to do with my post-statism. Still, if I’m wrong, I need to know.
