Freedom from Government; Statist Delusions, available now at the FREEDOM FROM GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL ONLINE STORE
“No society can make a perpetual constitution, or even a perpetual law. The earth belongs always to the living generation…Every constitution, then, and every law, naturally expires at the end of 19 years. If it be enforced longer, it is an act of force and not of right.”
—Thomas Jefferson (in a letter to James Madison from Paris, September 6, 1789)
In ‘Freedom from Government; Statist Delusions‘, from Trent Goodbaudy, Trent challenges the philosophy within the most used tired old arguments for statism and offers viable solutions to our current wreck of a corrupt, old, tired, and bloated political system.

I suppose that since I have included the word “statist” in the title of this manuscript, before I proceed I should briefly explain what it is about. In case you are not aware of what a statist is, I will explain exactly what I believe a statist to be, and what I am trying to achieve by writing this book.
“Statist” as defined by Merriam-Webster.com is “: an advocate of statism”. So, perhaps the definition of “Statism” would be appropriate at this point; “Statism” as defined by Merriam-Webster.com is “: concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of a highly centralized government often extending to government ownership of industry”
That was a rather dry and uninteresting yet accurate definition, but maybe I should share what a statist is to me, in easy-to-understand, common terms.
In my mind; a statist has an unending, all enduring faith and whole-hearted support of their government and its practice of forcing compliance with its legislation through violence. A statist believes that government is necessary for society, and if you do not support your government it does not matter because you will be forced into compliance. There is no opting out of your servitude, there is only compliance. Comparable in ways, to hardcore theism, someone that is a statist often times believes that government is not only necessary, but should be involved in making decisions for people, to the extent that violence and coercion is used. The majority of statists are typically, literally stuck in the left-right paradigm of two-party politics.
Have you thought about your true political affiliation? Most of us believe that there are only two main choices; either Democrat or Republican. When in reality there are many more political systems. From communism to socialism, anarchism to state-capitalism, fascism to anarcho-capitalism, most of which are largely misunderstood by the general public. For example, did you know that The People’s Republic of China operates under a State-Capitalism political system; and not one of Communism as the majority of Americans believe? I don’t want to get too much into explaining what the many other political system models are and how they operate (as this would be a book in itself). Although I do want to build an awareness of what statism is, and introduce you to less archaic and viable alternatives to it. I believe that the information, when presented properly speaks for itself in terms of practicality and ethical alternatives to our current system.
Currently our society is based on the principal that we are unable to be responsible for ourselves, and as a solution, we have granted the government a divine right to rule over us, and the right to use force and coercion against us to get us to comply. Don’t believe me? Try not paying your taxes or driving your vehicle without registering it with the government and see how long it takes to be forced or coerced into compliance. So many other species live on this planet in relative harmony, but our species, the Human Race is compelled to imprison ourselves in a box made of government and as a result we severely limit our abilities as sentient beings with God-given rights, instead of government granted privileges. This type of society, essentially a security and control matrix, also inadvertently introduces a plethora of psychological issues including depression, hopelessness, anxiety, and many other conditions up to and including, suicide and homicide.
From birth we are indoctrinated to believe that we have masters. A great majority of Americans believe that the government exists to tell others what to do. They believe that people need to be “helped” into making the right choices by forcing them to do what the state feels is best for them in the form of legislation through law enforcement and corrections. What is wrong with letting people make their own decisions about every aspect of their own life? Except for when infringing on the free will of others or doing harm to others, why shouldn’t we have the liberty to do as we please during our lifetime? Why do we need to have a government that threatens us with violence and coercion that we must support it or violence and force will be used against us?
We only have one life. We have one chance. We each have maybe around one hundred years if we are lucky, to complete a fulfilling life here on planet Earth. Why do we need to grant the powers of master over us to a faceless corporate entity with no soul, and no motivation to protect us? This book is about the most common arguments I have heard people use that support statism, and why most of them are either obsolete or oppressive, and what can be done to improve conditions on this planet for all of humanity.
