Actually it is the system of capitalism that is really robbing you. We've had this discussion before.
Capitalists takes the majority wealth created by your labour for themselves, creating an imbalance in wealth that leads to poverty and all the social
problems that causes.
The state is the inevitable result of capitalism. Capitalism itself creates a hierarchical system, which is in itself a state system. The state is
any system that allows one class of people to lord over another.
Capitalists will always require protection for their capital. Without it there is nothing stopping workers from taking over their work places. The
state is designed to protect the privileged of capitalist ownership of the means of production.
I already proved to you in this thread...www.abovetopsecret.com...
that your idea of what capitalism, and anarchism are, is based on a lot of misconceptions. Capitalism is not free-markets etc. It is not the only
system that can make that claim. The only unique thing to capitalism is the 'private ownership of the means of production'. Which means our ability
to provide for ourselves is at the mercy of the few privileged owners.
Don't let this guy fool you folks, go get a sense of history, and what has really happened politically since the industrial revolution. We will never
have a state free society until we have a capitalist free society. A society where everyone has access to the machinery, tools, land etc., needed for
We have the ability right now to feed everyone on this planet but we don't, why? Because capitalism cares only for itself. Money is an illusion for
power and control, and poverty is a lack of resources.
In the developing world, more than 1.2 billion people currently live below the international poverty line, earning less than $1 per day.
Hunger persists in the U.S: (Source)
38.2 million people—including 14 million children—live in households that experience hunger or the risk of hunger. This represents more than one

“There is more than enough water in the world for domestic purposes, for agriculture and for industry. The problem is that some people –
notably the poor – are systematically excluded from access by their poverty, by their limited legal rights or by public policies that limit access
to the infrastructures that provide water for life and for livelihoods.”

It's capitalism that has caused this, the lack of availability of the means of production, because it is owned by the few who monopolize it for their
own benefit, the state is just a result of that. Give people what they need to survive, and they will survive. No need for handouts, no need for us
the people to finance the solution to the problems capitalism causes.
