The scientific method needs freedom to experiment and discover how the world works. Then we can use that knowledge to reach our goals. Having a state, or at least a powerful state, reduces our ability to experiment with how society works and then use that knowledge to improve our lives. The state does not allow for competing experiments and implementations of societal technologies like law, money, healthcare, and economics. It imposes its will over how society should work and in the process slows or outright kills a society’s ability to experiment and improve. It slows societies ability to evolve.
