The emergence of a popular anti-state leader offering a plan for dissolving the federal government, and in a way that transcends or rises above the normal left/right divisions would likely have the effect of growing the anti-state movement. President Donald Trump has been something of a godsend to anti-statists because having an oafish creep as head of state is certainly a desirable state of affairs in the sense of its corrosive effects on the legitimacy of the state. Hopefully, Trump will inspire a wave of even more ridiculous and cretinous characters to seek and win elective office.  Keith Preston
