    ok, it took awhile to get a handle on what all that, "Order Condemning and Forfeiting property to the United States' was all about.

    Here is my take on it:

    Backpage was grabbed and charged with crimes involving a number of individuals. In effect, The bad guys were represented by a range of Law firms whom held, essentially in trust and drawing interest, funds given by the Law Firm clients, in this case all of the pimps and child traffickers. When they lost their case, all of the money held in trust was relinquished to the gubment.

    Getting rid of government means we need another system whereby we work, trade, solve conflicts, etc.

    There is no alternative currently and if we just get rid of government we will have mobs and warlords. We won't be able to drive down the street or across state/country lines without getting accosted, having to pay a 'toll', and that's if our stuff doesn't just get confiscated for the 'cause', whatever it currently is.

    I really don't understand why people don't see this.

    If we really want to get rid of government we need to do it collectively, rather than separating ourselves out and calling others names, like sheeple.

    Notice the eyebrow raise at 3:11

    To raise eyebrows means to cause other people to react with surprise or mild disapproval. To raise an/your eyebrow means to move your eyebrows up in a way that shows surprise or mild disapproval. Both of these phrases are often used figuratively. The following example sentences show how each phrased is used.
    "We are one thought away from changing the world!"
