If you don't own yourself, what else matters? In most of the developed world we aren't allowed to ask a medical professional to help us decide when we no longer want to exist - the state thinks it's wiser in this regard. One more sub-national entity is on the side of reason, for now.
A Reddit post highlights the childishness of American legislative bodies with regards to professional sports. These trials get the kind of attention from legislative bodies that should be reserved for government scandals. Even John McCain fell prey to this in the last decade when he proposed a Federal commission on boxing. Why not a Federal NASCAR Commission then? A Federal Video Game Commission?
Professional sports are not government agencies. We don't need the Feds or anyone else wasting our money and attention on regulating them.
A commonly held theory of the emergence of states is that agricultural surplus encouraged the development of complex political structures. Previously I outlined a theory that agricultural production which requires organization is the trigger for state formation. Most of the time this happens with agriculture in marginal environments (deserts or desert-adjacent areas) which require irrigation and coordination with annual weather events, and explains why states don't emerge in rich environments (like volcanic temperate rainforests>) which would otherwise be more intuitive. In China, this occurred because the crop that was adopted and fit the local environment was labor-intensive. That is: in all these examples, food production and organization emerged together and created a positive feedback loop.
A new theory holds that agricultural production makes food (and neolithic wealth) transparent, and enables the kleptocratic aspect of states.
