Which is more accurate. A) The State exists to serve the individual OR B) the individual exists to serve the State
B. Smash the state.
Trick question: the people are the State.
It's cute that you think so. That's what keeps the serfs docile and obedient.
Good to see you, too.
Simple Q with a complicated A. The state exists to serve the populous and thereby the individual. The individual contributes to the populous, and thereby serves the state. I am not sure it's possible to extricate one from the other as neither would exist without the other.
Good Q Reb.
A should be.
B is what has become.
Picked A, but neither is particularly close to accurate. The state exists to serve the people, plural as in "the herd" (horde?), never any individual. B is just plain wrong, and has never been the case.
I'd say our current situation is closer to B hence why upwards of 40-50% of my annual income is being stolen at various levels and stages of government.
B is what is, A is what some people think should be, and a lot of idealists think can be.
