“Anything” is a function of “everything”, therefore whatever problems or challenges happen to arise, crime or climate or education or pandemics or whatever, they are a product of reality…a product of that which IS.
I know this seems pretty meta, but stay with me.
The State is always the incarnation of a Collective Ideal, which is an abstract, transcendent, divine-like progenitor of all that IS as we know, experience, and sense it, including, naturally, ourselves…think the People, the Race, the Tribe, the Church, the Marxist Utopia, the Climate, Social Justice, Diversity…anything, really, from the hyper-abstract (e.g. the Divine Will) to the more pedestrian (e.g. the Common Good). This being the case, the State, in essence, as far as we shall be concerned, and certainly and most of all as far as the ruling class is concerned, is, itself, all that IS. The State exists to compel all of humanity and by extension humanity’s environment (the world and Universe) into itself. The State exists to bring everything into itself; to possess all that IS; to becomes ALL. The great Sin of man is that he possesses an awareness of Self distinct from the Collective Ideal, which is Divine, and the great Sin of the world and the Universe is that it gives man a place to manifest his Self. The purpose of the State is to sanctify man and his environment, and it does this by deconstructing both, by violence and deception, and then consuming them.
Now, lest you think that this insanity is simply a function of particularly evil, deranged, or ignorant rulers, know that it is in fact a function of the very nature of the State. The State is a necessary consequence of collectivist metaphysics, and the necessary consequence of collectivist metaphysics is destruction and death. No matter who is in charge, or noble the intention, the nature of the State is rigidly fixed to the philosophical premises from which it springs.
The nature of the State makes it entirely incapable of correctly defining anything at all, because what IS is always filtered through then lens of collectivist philosophical madness. The true nature of what IS is, as I said, rejected and replace with that of some kind of “original sin” of rebellion from the Collective Ideal; and “fixing” things only ever means forcing them into absolute and categorical subordination. Which is of course impossible because the terms by which the State defines reality and everything in it are complete lies. The State cannot correctly define reality and therefore it cannot correctly define what constitutes a problem and therefore it cannot correctly define what constitutes a solution.
The consequences of any State action to address problems in the world and society and man are only, inevitably, chaos, torment, misery, and death, because these are the only consequences its nature can allow.
