A lot of people think that the root of government is freedom. But if this is true (which it is not), many people have forgotten their high-school math, because the complete answer would be:
?G = +/- Freedom
From the law of identity, we know that A is A. It cannot be both A and –A at the same time. Therefore, ?G cannot be equal to both Freedom, and the Opposite of Freedom. This would be problematic because of the +/- operator alone; we cannot definitively show that ?G = either Freedom, or –Freedom. Furthermore:
1. Given that: “Government is the negation of liberty” –or– [G = -L]
2. And that: liberty = freedom
3. It follows that: Government = -(Freedom)
4. Therefore: ?G = ?(-Freedom)
If we substitute either F or -F into our original equation, and do a little algebra; we are left with:
Freedom = Freedom*Freedom or -Freedom = Freedom*Freedom
So the “root of government is freedom” hypothesis is exploded, once and for all, because neither of these make any sense. But then what is the root of government?
Start from step 4 above and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Given: ?G = ?-(Freedom)
We know that the root of a negative number is imaginary. From whence it follows that whatever root we may suppose Government to have, it is purely imaginary, and useful only in making pretty fractals on supercomputers.
