Statists Face Headwinds

Yeah, a storm is threatening
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Lord, I'm gonna fade away
--Rolling Stones

Statists are people who seek to employ the strong arm of government to get what they want. What they want may be tangible economic resources or intangible psychic income from seeing others being forcefully restrained.

Statists face a problem, however. Using force to get one's way conflicts with natural law. Not only is the application of aggression on others morally wrong, but it conflicts with axiomatic behavior that defines economic man.

Thus, although statists might feel a sense of finality when government programs such as Obamacare or QE or the Sixteenth Amendment are passed or upheld by courts, it isn't over. Natural forces build in opposition until they no longer can be restrained. When those forces of nature finally let go, statist initiatives get wiped away and social order returns.

Statists face relentless headwinds intent on removing aggression and restoring peace to the social system.

The highest manifestation of life consists in this: that a being governs its own actions. A thing which is always subject to the direction of another is somewhat of a dead thing.
~Thomas Aquinas
