… the whole point of politics is to “divide” people, to separate people by principle and ideology and to have them slug it out, each trying to gain a majority support of the population.
Irrepressible Rothbard, p. 289
… men are not uniform … the species, mankind, is uniquely characterized by a high degree of variety, diversity, differentiation; in short, inequality. An egalitarian society can only hope to achieve its goals by totalitarian methods of coercion …
Murray N. Rothbard Egalitarianism as a Revolt Against Nature, pp. 7–8
The tactic is a two sided coin- us vs them, then using “them” or the big “problem” real, exaggerated or fabricated is used to justify more state power.
The gravest crimes in the State’s lexicon are almost invariably not invasions of private person or property, but dangers to its own contentment, for example, treason, desertion of a soldier to the enemy, failure to register for the draft , subversion and subversive conspiracy, assassination of rulers and such economic crimes against the State as counterfeiting its money or evasion of its income tax. Or compare the degree of zeal devoted to pursuing the man who assaults a policeman, with the attention that the State pays to the assault of an ordinary citizen.

Do you get extra rights by getting a job with a group called government? Does getting paid to do an immoral action, justify you performing the immoral action under the guise of “I was just doing what I was told to”?
To summarize Professor Jason Brennan idea:
Whatever you can do in self defense, or in self defense against others, against anything that I Jay Brennan do, you can do against the U.S. President.
Moral Parity thesis: The claim that, conditions under which you are able to resist injustice conducted by a government official, even when acting in the capacity of their office, are exactly the same as the conditions under which you’re allowed to resist non state actors.
Special Immunity thesis: Some government agents enjoy (are entitled to) a special kind of immunity against resistance
… my basic motivation for being a libertarian had never been economic but moral. … While I was convinced that the free market was more efficient and would bring about a far more prosperous world than statism, my major concern was moral: the insight that coercion and aggression of one man over another was criminal and iniquitous, and must be combatted and abolished.

… the State is the organization of robbery systematized and writ large. Th e State is the only legal institution in society that acquires its revenue by the use of coercion, by using enough violence and threat of violence on its victims to ensure their paying the desired tribute. Th e State benefits itself at the expense of its robbed victims. Th e State is, therefore, a centralized, regularized organization of theft . Its payments extracted by coercion are called “taxation” …

Any statute or administrative regulation necessarily makes actions illegal that are not overt initiations of crimes or torts according to libertarian theory. Every statute or administrative rule is therefore illegitimate and itself invasive and a criminal interference with the property rights of noncriminals.
Murray N. Rothbard – Economic Controversies, p. 406
In short, government regulation consists of coercively interfering in what would otherwise be a voluntary exchange, causing death that would not occur if the interference hadn’t taken place.
“Death by Regulation” is the title of a great book by Mary J. Ruwart, can be found here: http://www.ruwart.com/product/death-regulation
… in a world of voluntary social cooperation through mutually beneficial exchanges, where one man’s gain is another man’s gain, it is obvious that great scope is provided for the development of social sympathy and human friendships. It is the peaceful, cooperative society that creates favorable conditions for feelings of friendship among men…. the social relations formed by the division of labor tend to be permanent as individuals specialize in different tasks and continue to produce in those fields.
Murray N. Rothbard Man, Economy, and State with Power and Market, p. 101
James R. Harrigan is managing director of the Freedom Center at the University of Arizona and the F.A. Hayek Distinguished Fellow at the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE).
In very few cases have these anti-interventionists favored literal “isolation”: what they have generally favored is political nonintervention in the affairs of other countries, coupled with economic and cultural internationalism in the sense of peaceful freedom of trade, investment, and interchange between the citizens of all countries. And this is the essence of the libertarian position as well.
Murray N. Rothbard For a New Liberty, p. 330

… unlike private persons or fi rms, who obtain money by selling needed goods and services to others, governments produce nothing of value and therefore have nothing to sell. Governments can only obtain money by grabbing it from others, and therefore they are always on the lookout to find new and ingenious ways of doing the grabbing.
Murray N. Rothbard Case Against the Fed, pp. 58–59
Whenever a third party coercively intervenes in a voluntary exchange, the voluntary parties are both worse off.
