“The problem that governments are trying to solve is the existence of your freedom”

“The problem that governments are trying to solve is the existence of your freedom” was posted on X/Twitter by American libertarian writer, publisher and entrepreneur Jeffrey Tucker on October 1, 2023. That is, governments don’t really care to solve people’s problems. The only problem that governments really want to solve is that people have freedom—and often desire to exist without government.
