Exercising Authority in Service to the “Will of the People”, like other Transcendent Notions, is Mysticism–it is Not Rational

Anyone who claims rulership and/or leadership according to a “mandate from the people” (which cannot exist), or “God’s calling” (whatever that means), or any “authority” which is purely transcendent and abstract, claims such rulership and/or leadership based upon a purely presumptuous, subjective, and irrational right and moral obligation to compel obedience to him or herself and/or the institution under which auspices he or she functions via force, which is violence, and not upon the idea of cooperation between and amongst free, rational, self-owning individuals. This kind of governing system must inevitably dissolve into tyranny, and will inevitably collapse…usually into a massive crater of death and damage.
