In 1935, Albert J. Nock published Our Enemy, The State, his classic.treatise on how successive.governments.conspire to increase the power of the State by stealthily decreasing the power of We The People. Nock bluntly describes the State as the common enemy of all industrious and decent men, a controlling bully that operates through deception and threats. This is a damning.observation, even more true now in 2022 than it was 89 years ago

The Irish State, according to James Joyce, is."the old sow that eats her farrow". The State is contrived to devour the wealth of its people and to stifle their freedoms and individual sovereignty. The outcome of this great villainy is austerity, poverty, servitude, suicide, eviction, emigration, bank bailouts, unnecessary taxation and myriad injustices and hardship, all leading to compromised health and early death for many people.

'State' and 'Government' are terms often used interchangeably but this is not entirely accurate. 'State' is more an abstraction, a nonphysical entity, while 'Government' is a collection of people.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'State' as: "an organized political community under one government; a commonwealth; a nation."

Max Weber describes 'The State' as: "a compulsory political organization with a centralized government that maintains a monopoly of the legitimate use of force within a certain territory."

Yet Murray Rothbard forthrightly defines the 'State' as "the organization of robbery systematized and writ large". In other words, the State is a huge mafia organization and the government is its 'wiseguys' hoodlums who are paid to enforce a plethora of 'laws' and to steal as much from the people as they can. The State, through the muscle of government, is but a glorified 'protection racket' run by the few to fleece the many.

So, if the government merely functions as mafia 'wiseguys', who then are the Godfathers?
The Godfathers are a small but all-powerful cabal of international banksters operating in the shadows behind the façade of the State. While governments may come and go, these omnipotent crooks are always in the background, scheming, grasping and controlling. They maintain their 'death grip' on the people by directing the activities of subservient governments. Those politicians whom they cannot bribe or cajole, they threaten, blackmail or destroy.
