Evil individuals and sociopaths, without limit to their religion (or anti-religion), Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Atheist, rich, poor, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, ideology, whether they are Capitalists or Socialists, Feminists, Social justice warriors, black lives matter, Regressive Left, PC Principle etc. are incentivized to gravitate toward WHERE they can use monopolistic powers to initiate violence on other individuals.
Is it not rational for these individuals to go down the path of least resistance to achieve their true aim: POWER? And what is the most cost effective way to achieve this POWER than through the mechanism by which has the monopoly to initiate violence: GOVERNMENT?
In the same way, when you look at a Democracy, where a large percentage of individuals are on Government payroll either through welfare benefits or direct employment, is it any surprise that they would vote in their own self interests regardless of the mechanism by which they receive the “benefit?”
After all, if two wolves and a sheep get to vote on what’s for dinner, is it any surprise what the results will be? The wolves will make all sorts of intellectual arguments as to justify for themselves the initiation of violence on the sheep. And of course, the “sheep” are simply being “selfish” and “greedy” in order to protect themselves from the “tyranny of the masses.” Thus is the reality of our society.
