The Top Ten Reasons Why The Mafia Is Better Than The State

Reason Number 10: The Mafia has a sense of honor. If they say that they will do something, they stick to it. Nobody in the government has a clue what a sense of honor is. If they say that they will do something, you can count on it only if you're getting screwed.

Reason Number 9: The Mafia code of conduct is simple and clear, and unfettered by legal doublespeak and millions of regulations.

Reason Number 8: When competing Mafia families go to war, they don't kill hundreds of thousands of civilians as "collateral damage." War is the health of the state, but for the Mafia, it's bad for business.

Reason Number 7: Instead of conducting the war on drugs and the American people, the Mafia is perfectly happy to peacefully provide high-quality products to those who desire them.

Reason Number 6: When you buy protection from the Mafia, you get protection. The Mafia has a good track record for limiting violent crime in the areas that they protect. When you buy protection from the state, you can dial 911 and die.

Reason Number 5: The Mafia's protection is much less expensive than the state's. The Mafia wants ten or fifteen percent of your profits, while the various levels of government will try to snatch at least 40 to 50 percent of your profits.

Reason Number 4: Unlike the state, the Mafia wants your business to succeed. They know that ruining your business means that you can't pay for protection. The Mafia imposes almost no regulatory overhead, nor do they require that you waste your time filling out zillions of self-incriminating tax forms.

Reason Number 3: The Mafia won't keep you from having a gun to protect yourself and your property. The state prefers that you be disarmed. The Mafia will gladly sell you the means to protect yourself and they won't bother with a Brady check, either.

Reason Number 2: The state wants to regulate what you do in your bedroom. The Mafia not only does not want to regulate what you do in your bedroom, they will gladly sell you whatever you need to enhance your enjoyment.

And the number one reason why the Mafia should replace the state: Members of the Mafia have a great sense of style, dress far better than government bureaucrats, and are much easier on the eyes.

So there you have it. The next time that somebody argues that anarchy results in an increase in organized crime, smile sweetly and tell that person it would be a real improvement over the state.

I would agree.

You would probably love the "Anarcho-Piratism" I fashioned one time. I never actually believed it but it seems to be a highly distinct and functioning ideology with it's own set of advanced theories.

One could argue that the mafia isn't limited by anything (except sheer resources) while the government is often limited either by its own rules or the Constitution.

Then again, history disagrees.

George Washington had more honor than the mafia.

Reason Number 9: The Mafia code of conduct is simple and clear, and unfettered by legal doublespeak and millions of regulations.

The Constitution is more profound and concise than any mafia codes.

Reason Number 8: When competing Mafia families go to war, they don't kill hundreds of thousands of civilians as "collateral damage." War is the health of the state, but for the Mafia, it's bad for business.

Mafia conflict is smaller scale plus, the mafia will not hesitate to shoot up a restaurant.

Reason Number 7: Instead of conducting the war on drugs and the American people, the Mafia is perfectly happy to peacefully provide high-quality products to those who desire them.

The Founders had hemp and tobacco crops, drug war is a recent phenomenon thanks to Nixon.

Reason Number 6: When you buy protection from the Mafia, you get protection. The Mafia has a good track record for limiting violent crime in the areas that they protect. When you buy protection from the state, you can dial 911 and die.

The United States heartland has never been invaded since its inception, you can thank our advanced military defense for having no foreigners blowing up your house.

Reason Number 5: The Mafia's protection is much less expensive than the state's. The Mafia wants ten or fifteen percent of your profits, while the various levels of government will try to snatch at least 40 to 50 percent of your profits.

We had no income tax until the Rothschild banking cartel and Rockefeller mafia colluded to establish the Federal Reserve that robs us every month due to inflation.

Reason Number 4: Unlike the state, the Mafia wants your business to succeed. They know that ruining your business means that you can't pay for protection. The Mafia imposes almost no regulatory overhead, nor do they require that you waste your time filling out zillions of self-incriminating tax forms.

Governments get mass revenue under a booming economy. You can thank the international bankers and Liberals for the regulations hostile to business.

Reason Number 3: The Mafia won't keep you from having a gun to protect yourself and your property. The state prefers that you be disarmed. The Mafia will gladly sell you the means to protect yourself and they won't bother with a Brady check, either.

The Constitution guarantees the right to bear arms. Criminals admit that they want their victims disarmed. A just government ruled by the consent of the people trusts the citizens with guns. Even in today's draconian society there's 300,000,000 guns in circulation in America, we're far from disarmed.

Reason Number 2: The state wants to regulate what you do in your bedroom. The Mafia not only does not want to regulate what you do in your bedroom, they will gladly sell you whatever you need to enhance your enjoyment.

How many times has the government spied on you in your bedroom window and arrested you for sodomy?

And the number one reason why the Mafia should replace the state: Members of the Mafia have a great sense of style, dress far better than government bureaucrats, and are much easier on the eyes.

I always picture big fat cats with cigars as the mafia. The Senate wears fancy suits, look at Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, very snazzy.

So there you have it. The next time that somebody argues that anarchy results in an increase in organized crime, smile sweetly and tell that person it would be a real improvement over the state.

Mafia has no accountability to the public. Officials in Washington can get booted out, unfortunately the public is stupid. The people get the government they deserve. Fortunately the Founders ratified the Constitution to protect us from the mob rule and we all still have guns.

George Washington had more honor than the mafia.

He owned 316 slaves. Also, George Washington is not the government and was not the government. He was a small part of the government for a small chunk of time.

Reason Number 9: The Mafia code of conduct is simple and clear, and unfettered by legal doublespeak and millions of regulations.

The Constitution is more profound and concise than any mafia codes.

The Constitution has been used on both sides of every argument since it was written. It is also suspended in times of crisis, and suspended since about 1913-present.

Reason Number 8: When competing Mafia families go to war, they don't kill hundreds of thousands of civilians as "collateral damage." War is the health of the state, but for the Mafia, it's bad for business.

Mafia conflict is smaller scale plus, the mafia will not hesitate to shoot up a restaurant.

The State kills millions of innocent civilians, the mafia kills next to zero innocent civilians. If they do accidentally kill a civilian, they are more apt to make amends with the family and owe them a favor.

Reason Number 6: When you buy protection from the Mafia, you get protection. The Mafia has a good track record for limiting violent crime in the areas that they protect. When you buy protection from the state, you can dial 911 and die.

The United States heartland has never been invaded since its inception, you can thank our advanced military defense for having no foreigners blowing up your house.

This obviously references the police, which do not have a duty to protect citizens. The mafia make a contract with people for protection, and they abide by it.

Reason Number 5: The Mafia's protection is much less expensive than the state's. The Mafia wants ten or fifteen percent of your profits, while the various levels of government will try to snatch at least 40 to 50 percent of your profits.

We had no income tax until the Rothschild banking cartel and Rockefeller mafia colluded to establish the Federal Reserve that robs us every month due to inflation.

So you begrudgingly agree that government is worse than the mafia in this scenario. K.

Reason Number 4: Unlike the state, the Mafia wants your business to succeed. They know that ruining your business means that you can't pay for protection. The Mafia imposes almost no regulatory overhead, nor do they require that you waste your time filling out zillions of self-incriminating tax forms.

Governments get mass revenue under a booming economy. You can thank the international bankers and Liberals for the regulations hostile to business.

Thanks, Point mafia.

Reason Number 3: The Mafia won't keep you from having a gun to protect yourself and your property. The state prefers that you be disarmed. The Mafia will gladly sell you the means to protect yourself and they won't bother with a Brady check, either.

The Constitution guarantees the right to bear arms. Criminals admit that they want their victims disarmed. A just government ruled by the consent of the people trusts the citizens with guns. Even in today's draconian society there's 300,000,000 guns in circulation in America, we're far from disarmed.

Government in America has banned guns in several cities. Point mafia.

Reason Number 2: The state wants to regulate what you do in your bedroom. The Mafia not only does not want to regulate what you do in your bedroom, they will gladly sell you whatever you need to enhance your enjoyment.

How many times has the government spied on you in your bedroom window and arrested you for sodomy?

Zero, because I don't engage in it. Government has sent people to prison for buttfucking before: Prior to 1962, sodomy was a felony in every state, punished by a lengthy term of imprisonment and/or hard labor. http://en.wikipedia.org... Point mafia.

And the number one reason why the Mafia should replace the state: Members of the Mafia have a great sense of style, dress far better than government bureaucrats, and are much easier on the eyes.

I always picture big fat cats with cigars as the mafia. The Senate wears fancy suits, look at Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, very snazzy.

The Godfather, Goodfellas, Eastern Promises. POINT MAFIA.

So there you have it. The next time that somebody argues that anarchy results in an increase in organized crime, smile sweetly and tell that person it would be a real improvement over the state.

Mafia has no accountability to the public. Officials in Washington can get booted out, unfortunately the public is stupid. The people get the government they deserve. Fortunately the Founders ratified the Constitution to protect us from the mob rule and we all still have guns.

Most of the Government positions aren't filled through elections.

Government's monopoly on currency seems to have a pernicious effect as well.

So when I treat government bureaucrats like crap, it's okay? That's a relief on my back.

That's the old Mafia. It's not like that anymore.
Reason Number 9: The Mafia code of conduct is simple and clear, and unfettered by legal doublespeak and millions of regulations.

As is the constitution.
Reason Number 8: When competing Mafia families go to war, they don't kill hundreds of thousands of civilians as "collateral damage." War is the health of the state, but for the Mafia, it's bad for business.

The modern mafia does kill innocents, you are thinking of the mafia from the early 20th century. War is not the health of the state; war can be used to gain political support for a politician or cause, but it weakens the state. Same with the mafia; wars are started to shift political power within the organization, or to promote a cause.
Reason Number 7: Instead of conducting the war on drugs and the American people, the Mafia is perfectly happy to peacefully provide high-quality products to those who desire them.

Only because they gain a monopoly from it.
Reason Number 6: When you buy protection from the Mafia, you get protection. The Mafia has a good track record for limiting violent crime in the areas that they protect. When you buy protection from the state, you can dial 911 and die.

If you don't buy protection the mafia destroys your property, breaks your limbs, kills your family, than they kill you. The state has to abide by certain rules when protecting you, the mafia does not.
Reason Number 5: The Mafia's protection is much less expensive than the state's. The Mafia wants ten or fifteen percent of your profits, while the various levels of government will try to snatch at least 40 to 50 percent of your profits.

Since when is income tax 40 to 50%?
Reason Number 4: Unlike the state, the Mafia wants your business to succeed. They know that ruining your business means that you can't pay for protection.
If you can't pay protection, the mafia shuts your business down, and beats you to a pulp.
The Mafia imposes almost no regulatory overhead, nor do they require that you waste your time filling out zillions of self-incriminating tax forms.

That's because they don't want a paper trail, and their protection rate is not fixed. They reserve the right to boost the cost of protection.
Reason Number 3: The Mafia won't keep you from having a gun to protect yourself and your property.
Unless you are using that gun against the mafia.
The state prefers that you be disarmed. The Mafia will gladly sell you the means to protect yourself and they won't bother with a Brady check, either.

The mafia sells you stolen guns, in order to gain a profit. The state won't sell you guns, because they are not in the business of selling arms.
Reason Number 2: The state wants to regulate what you do in your bedroom. The Mafia not only does not want to regulate what you do in your bedroom, they will gladly sell you whatever you need to enhance your enjoyment.

Actually, the mafia have rules regarding that stuff. If you are in the mafia, you are required to maintain appearances. The mafia is not a government, they are a criminal organization. The Mafia is concerned with business, the state is concerned with society.
And the number one reason why the Mafia should replace the state: Members of the Mafia have a great sense of style, dress far better than government bureaucrats, and are much easier on the eyes.

You mean like the cheese-man?

Not really. There would be an increased in violence, theft, and extortion.
