Constrained by Reality and Society

Statists will argue that individuals on a free market aren't really free to choose, because they are constrained by reality and society. Then they propose Government as the solution. But Government isn't above reality, and neither is it above society. Its choices are just as constrained. All Statists actually argue is that they support the arbitrary use of force by rulers to coerce citizens into doing their bidding.
