You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

In response to Thurstan McDougle's comments, every government believes it has the right way and is therefore right an justified in its actions persuading, coersing and forcing its subjects or citizens to adopt or obey its way of thinking. Individuals act this way at least some of the time. If we didn't, we'd not believe anything and be trapped in some post-modern world with no claims to truth. Perhaps this points up the inherent problem of government? Perhaps what we ought to be working towards are co-operative, consensual social organisations? If we meet to discuss the issues and decide our own fates, we begin to reform communities and so cease to need ID cards.
