    That ‘s excellent! I gotta put it my ‘Favorite Posts’ list, thank you for the tip. Imagine if everyone in the world saw that. It would be a very big deal.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe thinks
    the Right is always wrong

    and the Left is always right
    and facts don’t matter at all

    property rights -
    people’s rights to own it
    and control it

    not the state’s to steal it
    and give to someone else

    States come in pretty handy when having to deal with nazism, facism, imperialism, communism and islamofacism. If it’s not one thing it’s another.

    I too thoroughly enjoyed it.

    But it lost me when it said that the problems of war can be solved when people stop asking government officials to use force on their behalf. To build upon John Cunningham… I don’t think, for example, the people of Germany “asked” their nazi government to use force. And relying on the people to “stop asking” would have been a pretty feeble way to avoid being defeated by naziism. Same point with the others he mentions.

    In a world where people voluntarily enslave themselves to gods or ideologies, and equate virtue to enslaving others, we need a more muscular approach to defend liberty.
