This paper is a critique of how the state, the legal system, and the criminal justice system function in American society. The paper argues that the racial disparities in society are not by chance, but design, as they represent the original intent of the rich, white men that drafted the Constitution.

Time is spent debunking preconceived notions of anarchism and explaining why it is a viable path.
