The video is worthwhile, however it does not go into the alternative.
If our governments were to suddenly cease to exist, what would be the outcome?
We would revert to survival of the fittest without controls, laws and government. There is simply no way around that.
Without cooperative efforts, much of what we enjoy in life, like plenty of food, would no longer be possible unless a collective was formed once
Under this theory, when we were free in the Hunter Gatherer days, it was often necessary to kill your neighbor to insure a food supply. Life
expectancy was very short. No real medicine was possible and suffering would be widespread.
It is our needs that enslave us, not other men. Any man can kill another no matter how powerful, no matter how rich. When you eliminate law, morality
and a common goal from the equation, we would revert to the proverbial "Law of the Jungle".
Suppose we could rid ourselves of government and laws right now this minute. Open the doors of the prisons, fire all the Cops, close down the centers
of trade and eliminate all forms of governance. Immediately the most physically powerful would instantly take control. Living off the land would be
the only means of survival. Billions would starve the first year. Gangs of thugs would terrorize those who are left. Something akin to the situation
that Afghanistan was in under the Taliban would rule the day.
Half a story is often worse than the whole story. Returning to our wild state in this case is probably one of the worst options available to us. To
play along, the Matrix is likely far preferable to complete freedom. Look to places were government does not exist like the Congo for the true
alternatives to what we call civilized society.
