The initiation of force, and forcing things

My latest at Medium. Excerpt:

In a way, government mirrors the people it governs. I’m not saying it mirrors our policy preferences, but rather our personalities. For instance, government says we must prefer safety over liberty, and many of us protest and quote Benjamin Franklin (unknowingly) out of context. But then how many of us choose a career that promises financial security over the freedom of following our passion? We force ourselves into doing what we don’t want to do in order to achieve some theoretical greater, eventual good, but then the financial system collapses and we spent a life with neither financial security nor a fulfilling life.

Feel free to reprint. If you include the author bio especially with the Paypal link, that would be great!
