I believe if there will ever be any hope for humanity, it will be in its inherent and voluntary form.

If humans can't govern themselves then what hope do they have to govern others? How can you grant someone the right to do something that you don't have the right to do yourself? I don't need faith. I need justice. If the world explodes because of freedom, it had to end sometime.

One need only Google or Youtube Council on Foreign Relations to see how Propaganda has intellectually stunted the American People, preventing them from finding truth in Media Publications or Broadcasting.

As the Supreme Court ruled, News Media is not required to tell you the truth.

False choice.  People working together who work together and elect a government fall under both options.

Yes, if by government you mean like the chess club where you can join or quit whenever you like. I can't secede from the US government though.

You need to look up what the word "secession" means. Hint: It doesn't mean abandoning your land and moving somewhere else.

Then we agree.  You can't secede.  Nonetheless, people working together who work together and elect a government fall under both options of the poll.

Yes, they do but since I don't consent to be governed by these elected people then that option of the poll doesn't quite work.

Interesting reply.  It seems either of the poll options applies to you. 

What would you add as a better third option?

You don't think that the "they" we always refer to bought bitcoins? My guess is if they haven't bought any now, they they'll just crash the market and buy them cheaply. Then endorse them as a great idea.

Why not both? This hard-line shit is just childish. Regulation is required for some things, but where this line is drawn is a matter of debate.

Both are very similar to democracy.

The only difference is in democracy you get to choose the PR every 4 years.
