We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
More government requires more money. The citizen becomes a slave to the government. Than the various special interest groups form to extract more and more of that money from the government. The citizens aren't happy with this and demand change. Government's life blood is the tax revenues and they will not be changed. The special interest groups feel their free ride is threatened so the government allies with a coalition of special interest groups to fight back against the citizens. The citizens are poorly organized and prone to fractions and lose in their bid to reduce the size of government. The special interest groups demand punishment of the citizens so that they never threaten their "free stuff" again.
Kevin in WI: When you are calling on the destruction or redistribution of other people's wealth, and the tool you expect to use to do it is force, there is nothing libertarian or anti-authoritarian about you.
Anarchism and anti-authoritarianism (ends) may or may not involve using force (means) to eliminate existing power structures.
