The coercive nature of the state is necessary for its existence. All decrees handed down from the ‘wise men’ on high, are upheld and enforced on the promissory action of state sanctioned violence.
If you want to test this, try not to pay the mandatory government extortion fees, also known as taxes, and see where you end up; the other end of a gun.
This promise of violence is especially true within law enforcement. All participation in arbitrary traffic laws, constructed for the sole purpose of revenue collection, is mandated through the threat of violence.
Consider the example of a seat belt violation. You cause ZERO harm to anyone by not buckling up, yet police will pull you over and claim that you owe them money for seeing you driving without your seat belt.
