In Partisan Nation, you would use the IRS against your enemies because it’s there. And what else is it good for except reminding you that the taxpayers don’t have enough money to cover a new light rail system across the country or free bikes for all? In Partisan Nation, trust doesn’t matter because the default assumption is that everyone can be lied to non-stop or barraged with so much propaganda that they will do what they are supposed to. In Partisan Nation, America doesn’t matter, winning does.
