Do you even know what the “monopoly on violence” is you brainlet? Just because citizens can inflict a few murders doesn’t mean that the government doesn’t have overwhelming domination when it comes to the ability to inflict mass organizational violence.

Heh, little do you realize you have fallen right into the rhetorical trap. Once the citizens organize to challenge the government mass violence vs mass violence, the monopoly on violence over a geographic area is broken and divided into smaller monopolies on violence over the territories of each of the competing factions.

See the Syrian Civil war for example.

But they do, you retard. The government and military literally have a monopoly on the ability to wage war -- politics is just an extension of, and the constraint, of violence; they have absolute control over it.

Don't they have? Have you tried to kill a person without the permit from a goverment? Or just beat up somebody? You will be severly punished because goverments don't like competition.

communist revolution
public uprising
Pick one and only one. I can't think of a single communist state existing or having existed that was built on a public uprising.

Should actually be a monopoly on legitimate use of force, and it's not just libertarians, I read pols and ir at uni and this is a dominant perspective.

The phrase is just so pointless an edgy. It supposed to be provocative but it really isn't. The government is a manifestation of the will of the people. We give it the power which it manifests into action. If you are in the yolk of a tyrannical government then overthrow it with popular support, if you have minor qualms then work within the system to change it, if you like it then great. So what the fuck is this phrase trying to say?
I hate libertarians. They are the people who constantly complain because they are never in a position of power and say stupid shit like this.

Government has a monopoly on violence
Government has a monopoly on request tribute(pulic taxes) to everybody under his power

Acting like the government uses violence as some market force is pure retardation. We don't have governments for no reason.

they actually do not. to even call a government violent is to not understand what a government, or a state, is.
