Statists are people who view every aspect of society through the lens of government power.

see also Nanny State.

“With the statist establishment criminalizing everything, and the prosecution machine grinding out prison inmates every day, a dedicated “prepper,” gun-owner or survivalist has much to be wary of when dealing with of law enforcement officers.”

A statist supports greater power for big government, typically in controlling activities that would otherwise be conducted in the free market.

Quotes about Statists

  • Ronald Reagan famously said, “The ten most dangerous words in the English language are “Hi, I'm from the government, and I'm here to help.”
  • Among conservatives, libertarians and anarchists, “The State” referred to in “Statism” is big government that derives its power through coercion via the threat of violence. According to conservative libertarian pundit Stefan Molyneux, “The idea that The State is capable of solving social problems is now viewed with great skepticism - which foretells a coming change. As soon as skepticism is applied to the State, the State falls, since it fails at everything except increasing its power, and so can only survive on propaganda, which relies on unquestioning faith.”<ref>Quotes from Stefan on Accessed January 25, 2016</ref>

Snippet from Wikipedia: Statism

In political science, statism is the doctrine that the political authority of the state is legitimate to some degree. This may include economic and social policy, especially in regard to taxation and the means of production.

While in use since the 1850s, the term statism gained significant usage in American political discourse throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Opposition to statism is termed anti-statism or anarchism. The latter is characterized by a complete rejection of all hierarchical rulership.
