The True Origin of Government

Thanks to the great work of Franz Oppenheimer in The State I was able to give a short presentation on the true origin of government for North Georgia YAL’s third meeting. As students of government schools, we are usually led to believe that the government formed from some collective agreement to establish a privileged entity that gets authority from an intangible, unsignable social contract.

This is, however, completely fictitious. Check out the video below for the story of how government really came about, and if you ever happen to be in Dahlonega during one of our meetings, drop in to voice your own thoughts in the group discussions that we have after our videos end!
