  • Bad means are often needed to achieve good ends
  • The State should initiate force to achieve social goals
  • People who work for The State can morally do things that would be criminal for others to do

Statism is anti-social and anti-community. It rejects empathy, The Golden Rule, the Zero Aggression Principle, and individual conscience. It favors initiated force over cooperation and persuasion. It practices sociopathic politics and criminality at the expense of true government.
