I hear statists say that the public discourse has gotten too angry, vicious and divisive, and that we need more unity and cooperation. This would indeed be wonderful. It’s no surprise that someone gets angry when you boss them around and take their money, and then starts to dislike their aggressors. What causes so much anger and division is that the government legalizes coercion, and robbery through taxation. I bet that people would be more united and less angry with each other if they would stop coercing each other into doing things that they don’t want to do and stop stealing from each other and respect each other’s individual natural rights. Freedom is a very uniting force, not coercion.
