In the news: Census worker hanged with "fed" scrawled on chest.

Actually this hanged man was not really a fed. Yet it is certainly understandable that some people might feel like killing feds. Federal judges and national politicians have violated people's rights with insane and poverty-producing decisions and laws which enslave. Yes, federal slave masters crack an excruciatingly painful whip over every day people who are just trying to mind their own business. But killing feds is not the answer. There are many reasons to refrain from killing feds. Here are some of the most obvious:

Feds are like fire ants

There is nothing to be gained by killing a fed. Other feds will come. Then even more. And yet more. Until their entire culture crashes, they can reproduce themselves and swarm all over you faster than you could ever kill them.

Misdirected sympathy would be created

Killing feds only creates sympathy for them, helping them to be viewed as martyrs and making it look like you are the bad guy. You need to find ways to create sympathy not for feds, but for yourself. They have victimized you.

Heightened brutality would be created

Feds are hopelessly self-righteous, making it easy to justify to themselves the most damaging personal treatment of those who they see rebelling among their rightful slaves. Slaves are supposed to be passive and respectful of their masters.

Personal psychological damage

Even though feds may seem to have ruined your life and destroyed your opportunities, you are still alive. It is extemely hard to live life to the fullest when you have taken a brother's life, no matter what justification you try to tell yourself.

There is a better way

If you want to put an end to federal slavery, study and really take seriously the lessons of Course in Political Miracles

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
