Disproving the State: Four Arguments Against Government

The Militant Pacifist recommends that you check out the essay linked in the title of this posting.

Since the Militant Pacifist believes in the Christian doctrine of human fallen-ness, he cannot imagine a logically sound argument in support of humanly instituted government. Why (in the light of logic) should one depraved man submit or yield to another? The Militant Pacifist cannot determine any reason why, except that one of the depraved men has a sword in his hand! And that is not a good "reason." That is simply survival.

But then, the Militant Pacifist's thought has been swayed. He resides within a divine monarchy (a holy nation), a kingdom definitely not "of this world."
