    Well, as Étienne de la Boétie noted, they can’t kill us all and they can’t jail us all. Even prisons have riots, and even the Stasi’s regime fell under the boots of unarmed subjects.

    Even in a total police state, the state’s own armed agents often turn the regime’s guns on the regime itself.

    That’s not to say states can’t do a lot of killing and stealing in the meantime, of course.
