The abuses by government are so blatantly obvious it really does surprise me that more people aren't anarchists.

People cling to their delusions because they need to feel better about being victims.

"The abuses by government are so blatantly obvious it really does surprise me that more people aren't anarchists."

Many people have this idea in their mind of how "government should work" that is much like a young man's idea of a perfect woman. When you show them that our USA government sucks, they will agree and tell you hair raising stories that you did not even know about. But then, if you say that government itself is wrong, they will think you a nut. It is real hard to get a man to overcome a lifetime of propaganda and see that government itself is the root evil.

Men think that there is some "fix" to make government "work". A progressive at some sites will holler that we need "more and better Democrats". A right-winger will often holler that all we need is to get rid of the damned socialists.

Government is an institution that will destroy us. It must be dealt with. (good luck on that)

Stockholm Syndrome. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome

Quote
In psychology, Stockholm Syndrome is an apparently paradoxical psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. The FBI’s Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 27% of victims show evidence of Stockholm Syndrome.

The vision of the helpful and protective state is the most pervasive and counter-productive ideology in the world today.

Well said. I had a similar conversation with a new acquaintance the other day. He's a progressive who is all about trying to get the government to do the right thing. I kept telling him it's a lost cause, but he droned on about how that attitude perpetuates bad government. Unfortunately, it was in passing and I didn't have time to get into a real spiel.
