I Did Not Volunteer

"I heartily accept the motto, 'That government is best which governs least'; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe— 'That government is best which governs not at all'; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have." Henry David Thoreau

The government that coerces my cooperation with force, and believes me born into subjugation for the duration of my life is an enemy to my liberty and freedom. I did not volunteer. I was born and immediately stamped and processed into a life long servant of the nation controlling the geography of my birth. I did not volunteer, and I am beginning to realize the extent to which I am truly restrained.
