you want the world to be as free as possible, you want you to be as free as possible, and you assume that means as little government as possible.
that would be great, if everyone on the entire planet was considered equally and treated equally. you forget totally to acknowledge SOCIAL power structures. or maybe you didn’t even realize they exist because you’re very likely a cisgender white guy or haven’t examined your surroundings because you’ve been somewhere inside reading ayn rand all these years.
in order to operate on the assumption that everyone is equal and would have equal advantages/opportunities/rights with minimal government, you have to completely deny the existence of racism, sexism, ableism, transphobia, cissexism, etc.
you perpetuate the very existence of these things by denying that they exist, ya dig? you erase other people’s experiences and traumas and truths for the sake of furthering your own agenda. is that worth it?
PEOPLE NEED PROTECTION FROM ASSHOLES AND SOCIAL STRUCTURES, for as long as they exist. we need mandates against hate crimes and racial profiling and rape culture. maybe, if we lived in an ideal world, we’d all be considered equal, BUT WE DON’T.
