I have hope sometimes with Trump for the really long game, because in my eyes, his administration has been making the government a satire of itself. My hope is that it sparks the political Eureka we need that we're better off looking to each other to directly provide for the general welfare and mutual defence rather than expecting it from the State.
When we demand those things from the State, we look for others to act as a sovereign over us in order to accomplish an end that can only come about through voluntary consensus. We defer our responsibility to enact justice ourselves and thereby attempt to avoid accountability by blaming that sovereign when there are injustices in the world. That's why I believe the more local sovereignty lies, the better, as long as that sovereign is respecting all individuals justly.
What breaks my heart most about the world is that we have enough wealth so every one could live with access to food and shelter, yet we haven't figured out how to share with one another intelligently enough to expect that world from one another. It's almost as if we saw our neighbors in the same way we saw ourselves, we'd see the path toward all that is Good.
I know I'm just as guilty as most in my allowance of the current state of the State, but I don't think giving arrogant and judgmental people the authority to use state-violence (imprisonment, temporary enslavement) to punish non-violent offenders is going to make our country any Greater. I don't understand how such punishment can be called justice.
