ISIS and The "Social Contract" Deception

By Chris Rossini

There's a very good reason as to why Obama and David Cameron do not want to call the newly-formed Islamic State a "State".

It's bad PR for existing States.

But what an opportunity for everyone else to teach their kids just how governments come into being. What a great way to shatter any illusions that they might have about "social contracts" and other nonsense that they're force-fed in existing State "schools".

Justin Raimondo smacks down Obama who tries do deny that The Islamic State is government laid bare:
And as for his [Obama's] claim that the Islamic State "is certainly not a state," the President’s tone is rather too defensive. He says "it is recognized by no government, nor by the people it subjugates," but none of these factors are relevant in determining what constitutes a state – which is nothing more or less than a monopoly on the use of force in a given territory. The horror that is ISIL is merely the process of state formation looked at up close: the terror they employ is simply an exaggerated rendition of how every state gains its "legitimacy" – by definitively establishing its coercive monopoly. While ISIL is doing so in a particularly graphic manner, in principle it is acting no differently than any other embryonic state in history, benign creation myths to the contrary notwithstanding.
Here in America, we're so used to our gangsters wearing red & blue ties, kissing babies, and looking "Presidential". But we're in the advanced stages of the initial crime.

American mental conditioning stretches back even before the 13 colonies seceded from the biggest Empire of their day. Their gangsters wore white powdered wigs, and looked very "Kingly".

It's not an easy task to break such strong (and reinforced) beliefs as to what the true nature of The State is.

ISIS is providing a good modern day example.

Teach your kids: "This is government laid bare".
