Dear David,

I found your article, “Eat Me: The Cannabilistic Origins of the State” illuminating in some ways (worst views of the state) but somewhat simplistic in most ways.

Have you read much of Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, More, Erasmus, Locke, Hobbes and many other political philosophers on the origins of the state? You will find, as you read them, a much more nuanced and subtle read of the origins of the state.

It’s best to sit with the best and learn from them—when this is done, our perspectives are raised to a higher level--political anarchism is a thin and questionable approach to substantive political thought and action.
