When I got to the end of that post, I felt something truly bizarre. I know I have often railed against the government and the political system and talked about 646 lamp posts and so on, but for the first time I seriously wondered whether actual violence would be the only way to really change things.
There just seems to be so much inertia, so many vested interests, so many quangoes, so many ACPO-like empires, so much "third-sector" collusion that has built up over so many years that I can't see any simple way of legislating things better. And I can't see that Cameron is even interested in legislating things better, anyway. And when Labour have their next turn at the levers, it's not going to get better.
It's very soul-destroying. Changing people's minds, one at a time, seems like such a mountain to climb, especially when all you have is the idea of better control over your own life when there's a generous bribe being dished out by the other guys along with a promise that no matter what happens, it's not your fault and you never have to tidy up, either.
But upon reflection, I can only chalk my lunatic idea up to frustration: how could any libertarian suggest the use of actual violence against people in the name of a system that is so firmly opposed to the use of force? So I guess I'm left with that mountain to climb.
