In a natural environment – let’s describe such an organic environment as an unhampered market economy – humans recognize the beauty and benefits of social cooperation. If you think about the meaning of social cooperation in the context of two or more individuals it is easy to recognize that each person has something to offer. First of all if it is a truism that every snowflake is unique how can it not be appreciated that every human being is powerfully unique.
Additionally each human being has seen the world through a different lens and as subjective human beings they have unique perspectives to bring to their surroundings. It is easy, then, to see that the division of labor began occurring as far back as human records and beyond. Even without assuming the great potential of creativity that is inherent in humans (and those dynamic implications), the diverse contributions made led to an advancement of the economic conditions, as is recognized and understood and documented in economic theory.
It is the diversity of humanity and the releasing of the human potentials within an unhampered market economy that optimizes the progress of civilization.
What is the State? It is a monopolizer of power and control and authority. By its very nature it undermines the potential of the human contributions to the economy. Its tendency is to function as a monopolist which is the opposite of the tendencies of division of labor, diversity of thought, and experiential subjectivism.
On grounds of pure logic – the State is detrimental to human civilization. That is without even considering how susceptible it is to corruption, and the destructiveness of the ego-driven when the monopolistic reigns of power are seized.
