"We are actually living through a period in which the revolutionary left and the revolutionary right have merged — fighting the establishment to make government bigger — in a way that is mostly lost on their respective supporters."

I'm not quite sure what to make of this. The NYT describing the Islamic state stipend as theft, while missing the obvious question that raises for the same actions by other groups that claim the same right to do so. I'm having difficulty taking it seriously.

We've been a fed a myth about heroic individuals -- and that allows the 1 percent to prosper at everyone's expense

Proportionality of punishment springs to mind.

"There are only three possibilities where aggression is concerned.

1) Everyone can aggress against everyone else legitimately. Here we have barbarism. A complete lack of society. Might makes right and to hell with cooperation and peace.

2) One group of people can aggress legitimately against everyone else. Here we have statism in all its myriad forms. It fails every single time it is tried. It has resulted in more suffering and death than anything else. Over 240 million people were killed by their own governments last century. This doesn't even count war.

3) No one may legitimately aggress against anyone else. Here we have anarchism. A system where people must rely on voluntary agreement to get what they want.

Of those three only 1 and 3 are logically consistent. If you want society to exist then the only ethical choice is 3."
