In A Society ... Adventure, Property, and The State

In a society that has destroyed all adventure, the only adventure left is to destroy that society.

I don't agree with that quote, but I believe in the sentiment. There could be multiple ways to reformulate that quote to better reflect an anarchocapitalist/libertarian ethic.

When __________ destroys all __________, the only __________ left is to destroy that __________.

But first, what is questionable about the quote? Well, has society really destroyed adventure? The easiest response is: no, and that the government is really the culprit. But in that interpretation one needs to address the culpability of society in the aggressive usurpation of power by the government. And what is "adventure?" Is it really the act of being alive? Has the society-enabled state deadened the adventure of being alive?


The quote is in your face, shocking, but to  be more accurate and hopefully constructive:

When a state destroys all property,
the only ethically act left is to destroy that state.

Of course, destroying the state does not require violence.  You can destroy a state simple through, for example, nullification, and similar nonviolent means.
