Okay. I was addressing the line I cited or, if you prefer, this...
> Whatever the impetus, the State seems to have been wherever there has been man.
I must admit I have over generalized. It is certainly true that there have been groups here an there, large and small that have avoided the pitfall of the State. Some American Indian tribes, Irish Celts, certain tribes in Southeast Asia are among those groups. About the only Stateless people now are those of SE Asia. What sets those societies apart? How were they able to resist the lure of the State as long as they did?
I guess my real point is that if we want to see the end of the State we need to understand it's beginning, the seed and the roots. I am tempted to go into a long gardening/agriculture analogy but I will spare the dear members of the forum.
