Have you ever read any columns by Joe Sobran? He wrote this column almost a decade ago. You may or may not remember he was one of the smart ones that left National review when it started becoming a wing of the Neoconservative agenda.
I may not be completely sold on him premise, but it really strikes a nerve with me when I compare what I now believe about the almighty federal government being the real problem.
My belief: There's really no need to secede, but we should be closer to Sobran's vision than we currently are.
My arrival (very recently) at philosophical anarchism has disturbed some of my conservative and Christian friends. In fact, it surprises me, going as it does against my own inclinations.
As a child I acquired a deep respect for authority and a horror of chaos. In my case the two things were blended by the uncertainty of my existence after my parents divorced and I bounced from one home to another for several years, often living with strangers. A stable authority was something I yearned for.
Meanwhile, my public-school education imbued me with the sort of patriotism encouraged in all children in those days. I grew up feeling that if there was one thing I could trust and rely on, it was my government. I knew it was strong and benign, even if I didn’t know much else about it. The idea that some people — Communists, for example — might want to overthrow the government filled me with horror.
