    Is there a hint of localism in there?

    To be honest, I haven't read Murray's book yet. I think his argument is basically that given the power of government we now face that working within it to change it is hopeless and that civil disobedience is the only solution.

    Edmund Burke: "In vain you tell me that Artificial Government is good, but that I fall out only with the Abuse. The Thing! the Thing itself is the Abuse!"

    The reason for division is so no one wants to attack the government without hurting their preferred party.
    and as obvious as those things are so many will not see the truth
