How long have people been voting “for” one candidate, for the sole purpose of voting against another one, while saying, “at least it’s a step in the right direction”? I’ve even seen some people who call themselves anarchists doing this. But no, it’s never a step in the right direction. At best, it’s a step in a different wrong direction.
Yesterday I learned that one of my favorite restaurants ever–a simple little diner in rural Pennsylvania–has closed for good. It had been in business for a very long time, so it’s extremely likely that the bullshit shutdowns and other idiotic government-imposed restrictions were what killed it.
The way the ruling class manipulates thoughts is to have two groups of puppets spewing slightly different bullshit, and pretending that they represent the entire “spectrum” of respectable ideas.
If you’re sickened and outraged by the heinously evil crap that a lot of people in power have done, especially to children, GOOD! You should be. There are some evil shits who need to stop existing.
Evil bastards who understand psychology are particularly dangerous, because there are so many ways to bypass people’s ability to reason, by manipulating and playing off of their feelings, emotions, and just psychological habits.
Imagine how happy the control freaks have to be when they see that: people who know that statism is evil, being scared into enabling and legitimizing it anyway.
Can’t we all just get along? If you advocate the initiation of violence against innocents, then no, we can’t. And you are why we can’t, because you are the one condoning aggression.
Well over two hundred years ago, a few people scribbled some ink on some parchment, and pretended that that gave some people the moral right to demand money, under threat of force, from lots of other people (U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 1).
Well, no. It doesn’t. In fact, it fails to protect our rights from the authoritarian monstrosity that it created.
If you try to arrange things such that the political parasites can’t stick their noses into your business, they call it “money laundering.” Even if you’re not doing anything immoral or illegal, they will still demand the ability to track and snoop on whatever you do, while saying it’s to fight “money laundering” and terrorism.
