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.
Just a friendly reminder: every tyrant rose to power, always with some degree of popular support, while righteously railing against whatever authoritarian injustice came before. Mao did it. Stalin and Lenin did it. Hitler did it. Che and Castro did it. And so on.
They picture a giant hippie commune scene where everyone is happy and loving and caring and sharing, and there is no need for any control, or decision-making, or coercion, because in their imagination (and only in their imagination) there is no disagreement or dissent that needs dealing with.
If the people in power decide to rob you and abuse you and violate their own bogus rules, then you can petition a judge to please do something about it. But the judge is appointed by the robbers. And also paid by the robbers.
