22A001 Where Will All the Bullies Go? by Jim Davies, 1/4/2022
All government people are bullies; they pursue their careers so as to enjoy power over other people, of whom the more the merrier. They love the ability to issue an edict and see hoi polloi jump to obey. They live for that.
Exceptions? Possibly, a few. Most use terms like "entering public service" as if they were sacrificing themselves for the public good, rather than wriggling into a position of ordering the public what to do; it's very deeply hypocritical. But just perhaps, there are some - in the lower levels of employ - who genuinely believe cant of that kind, and wish only to be of help. Deluded, but sincere. I cannot say there are none of that sort - but they are not the ones calling the tune.
When the happy day comes that the last government employee walks out of his office for the last time and so closes the door on the government era, what will become of these bullies? - will they somehow cease to be bullies? Will their psychopathy somehow dissolve?
As suggested in my LewRockwell article The Fix, they will be among the last to convert and quit - especially Law Enforcement people, the very teeth of the State. Some of them will do so reluctantly, seeing no practical alternative. Those may well retain their power-hungry natures.
Recall, though, how the process will happen: first, re-education because a trusted friend recommends it, eg TOLFA; then at graduation a decision to find others to do likewise, and another to quit any government job held. So the choice to walk off the job will be deliberate, motivated by a serious and well-considered change of outlook. The hard-core, reluctant leavers won't be many.
Those dregs will not be happy, in the coming zero government society. There will be no position open to them, in which to exercise authority; as a market, all interactions between people will be voluntary and any exceptions to that will become matters for its justice industry to resolve. They will be "krimes." If someone commits one and refuses to follow the resolution ordered by the court, he will get shunned. He will find it hard or even impossible to do business with anyone - for example, to sell his labor in exchange for payment of a wage. So our former bully will find it a poor fit, and if he persists he'll starve.
All that provides him with a very powerful incentive to mend his ways, to cease to be a bully, and if necessary to get psychiatric help. Really hard cases like those who enjoyed power at the top of the heap might take their own lives, like Hitler and Göbbels, or perhaps emigrate; the places they might go to (still retaining a government) will shrink rapidly, though at first there will be some.
But always, the choice and responsibility will be theirs alone. There may be lawsuits against them for damages done, but there will be no criminal accusations, nor punishment. Any hell will be of their own making. So that's where the bullies will go.
