Competition and the competitive mindset is detrimental to any civilization, yet a vast majority seems to be okay with it and always ready to walk into the “same” trap over and over and thus accepts to be the enablers of their own demise.
Voluntarysim is a neat concept but just there will always be bigger fish eating up small ones
The word “voluntaryism” implies non-coercive principles because fighting what is deemed “evil” requires a bigger “evil” to be applied. And so on. The world has been marching toward its day of reckoning sold to the masses as the only way to buy Peace. Military budgets are skyrocketing on a planetary scale. Yet a vast majority is stubbornly more interested in football, celebrities, crypto-speculation and living beyond their means.
Anybody speaking of voluntaryism is deemed as an utopian and the principles of non-coercion trashed because the Truth is way too painful to realize. So buying into the Armageddon scenario, hoping that the enemies will be destroyed first and quickly, must be endorsed no matter what.

I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them. One would think that such irresponsible and reckless behavior would have the citizenry aroused and the media reporting the risk. Yet, there is only silence. It is more important to the media whether NFL players stand for the national anthem and that some male politicians show sexual interest in women in inappropriate ways.
