You're literally telling me you're going to get rid of class society and then reinstate it all over again. What is so different about one group holding the monopoly of the legitimate use of violence in society... Just like class society.

Whether you want to admit it or not you are advocating for a hierarchy. One class legitimizing who and who is not eligible to own firearms. This totally sounds like a state.

Philip Goodchild : Speech And Silence In The Mumokan: And Examination of the Use of Language In Light of the Philosophy of Gilles Deleuze . This essay attempts to "extract interpretative methods and concepts from Deleuze's work in order to make use of them in observing exactly how language is used in the Mumonkan" — a language-based interpretation of koans. Interesting essay. Originally published in Philosophy East and West, Jan93, Vol. 43 Iss. 1

It's deeper than industrialization. The desire to domesticate one's environment and very life is something I don't think we can easily escape.

Industrialization is just a side effect of something much deeper that I can't ever find a good word for.
