Truth Only v. The State

The state needs defense.  Truth Only needs no defense.  Therefore, the state is not Truth Only.  As the state becomes closer to Truth, it needs less defense.  But this is a subjective measure and cannot, therefore, assure peace.  The only way to end the need for the defense of the state is to abolish the state.  Truth - state = Truth = peace.

But how can the state be ended in peace, peace being the outcome of Truth Only?  Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Gandhi's teacher, showed that when we do not take oaths, as described in his book, The Kingdom Of God Is Within You, an interpretation of The Sermon on the Mount, we abolish the state in peace.

To spread popular knowledge of this concept, I am running for Texas Governor with the endorsement of Dr. Noam Chomsky (Intellectual of the Age).  I will not take the oath of office, as I hope millions of others will not around the world.  At critical mass, the state conception of life ends, and that which is left is a more peaceful world.  The powerful are kept from building their power centers (the state and its offspring) and resulting wars for more power centers.

The result is a world of smaller schools run by locals, monetary policy of barter and private coinage, property in land ownership in small communities, no gun control laws, a constitutionless world driven by conscience alone, etc.
