On Bootlickers II

Like their threat-forwarding cousins, those who attack ideas outside of the political status quo are another type of bootlicker. It’s been said that within any given population, 90% prefer the status quo, and 10% are the thinkers and innovators. This would be no less true for the politico-economic realm. Few people try to imagine ways that society could be truly better off than they are today. Even fewer are those who imagine better ways to do things that don’t involve politics. This minority of minorities puts their hopes and dreams into implementing new ideas to better satisfy people’s wants and needs, only to be attacked by government busybodies wielding red-tape guns. Those who ally with these violent busybodies against thinkers and innovators not only lick their boots, but gleefully eat the shit off the bottom, too. And that’s today’s two cents.
