There is authority of the state, the police, the law, you create this authority outwardly, because you have a piece of property which you want to protect. The property is yours and you don't want the other have it. So you create the goverment, a goverment which protect what is yours. So the goverment become your authority. It's your invention to protect you, to protect your idea, your system of thought. So you establish gradually through centuries a sytem of law, of authority, the police, the state, the goverment, the army to protect you and your mine. How about yourself? could you protect yourself without asking the other to protect you? Then authority come into being because of greed, then authority rule over your life.

What you say is true. When you let the Authority or Bureaucracy, get too big then you start losing all of your freedoms and rights. This is what is happening in the U.S. right now. We have let the Bureaucracy get too big and they are taking over everywhere. We used to have large States rights and small Federal rights and now it it reversing itself. We are in big trouble as a country. The average American used to have many freedoms, but each day we lose more and more. Shalom~Adoniah

At this time someone agree with me, usually they always deny what i've try to say althought they know it was true.
