The State has never been created by a “social contract”; it has always been born in conquest and exploitation. A conquering tribe pausing in its time-honored method of looting and murdering a conquered tribe, realized that the timespan of plunder would be longer and more secure, if the conquered tribe were allowed to live and produce, with the conquerors settling among them as rulers and exact tribute...
