This talk examines the eternal war between human civil societies and the egalitarian State, explaining in close detail how human social bonding naturally creates a myriad of in-group privileges without which there can be no group bonding. This in turn explains why states that abandon an original foundation in liberty in favour of a foundation in forced equality of outcomes necessarily commit themselves to a loyalty battle with their own civil societies. In a process described here as “substitute caring” the state relies on tax privileges and a myriad of public spending programs to weaken the natural bonds of civil society and convert them to loyalty to the state itself.
