Faith in Authority

Check out my latest at The Partial Observer. Excerpt:
And yet people who have the authority, without your personal consent, to discipline your children in school, to pull you over on a highway, to inspect your business establishment, or to review your financial records, are really your masters – even if they are called "public servants." Their "right" to do these things is just assumed. It is taken on faith, even though there is no evidence whatsoever that any of these intrusions on your life, liberty, and property serves "the common good." The only people who really benefit are those in authority who are paid to do these things to you.
