Is Government Really Necessary? (video)



The lively Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society discussion happened on December 9, 2012. (http://www.meetup.com/thinkingsociety/events/85461612/) Below is the description of the event on the Meetup page:

Most discussions about government start from the assumption that we need a government, but is that really the case? Will society fall apart without it? At this Meetup we'll consider the issue using the following definition of government: an organization with a monopoly on the use of force within a specified geographical area.

Arguments will be heard pro and con while alternatives will be looked at.

Lemonade and Raw Milk Rebels (Video)

They came to Washington DC from cities and small towns, from near and far, to break the law. Their crime? Selling raw milk and lemonade without permits nor licenses. Fortunately, the civil disobedience went well. Unlike last year the police didn't interfere and the protest went off with no one arrested.

Police State Checkpoint Nullification in Upper Moreland, PA

The problem with these checkpoints is that they're warrantless, arbitrary searches. This goes against all standards of civilized behavior and is not tolerable in a free society.  Not only are checkpoints violating our rights they're not effective. "Traditional police patrols are three times more likely to locate genuinely impaired drivers than these suspicionless checkpoints," according to James Babb, founder of the Valley Forge Revolutionaries. "So not only are these checkpoints blatantly immoral and illegal, they're also a waste of police time and tax dollars. It's long past time someone took a stand for fiscal responsibility, the rule of law, and plain common sense."  That's exactly what happened on Friday night:

A note on staying out of trouble and keeping the activism going, don't talk to the police. Stay alert for the tricks they use to provoke a problem that they then use as an excuse to arrest or threaten to arrest activists for. I want to thank my fellow checkpoint nullifiers for having the discipline and level headedness that kept us all safe from the police.
