“Even back when I was a "limited statist," desperately trying to increase freedom through voting and petitioning and campaigning, deep down inside I already knew that political activism was totally pointless and hopeless--that it would never lead to freedom--but I kept trying anyway, because I just didn't know what else to do, and I refused to give up.
Now I realize that that is EXACTLY the entire purpose of the political process: to keep the peasantry obsessed with a game that will forever steal away their time, energy, money and hope, while providing NO chance of them ever achieving freedom. And all the while, the people as a whole had the power to be free the MOMENT they really wanted it, just by removing their cooperation from the "system."
"Politics" is a hamster wheel in an unlocked cage. When the hamsters figure that out, the game ends.”
