Yeah like what Hitler,Mao, and Stalin did was for the 'general welfare'.
I make no GD apology for not worshiping at the alter of statolatry unlike some.
There is nothing bigger than trying to control the world there.
Ah the ever-present and predictable Mao-Hitler-Stalin comparison. And so soon!
So, Neo, in your world there are only extremes? There is no possibility of any reasonable sets of laws, or any constitutions of government that in
fact do help or protect the citizenry?
How do you envision a nation of 320 MILLION or a world of 7 BILLION all competing for resources with no centralized controls, i.e. no governments, no
rule-of-law, no structure, no order, no way to impose any controls on rampant human desire and need to control? Are you relying on some implicit
human kindness? That we would all just share and share alike?
Who do you think comprises the "guvments" that you so seem to hate unequivocally? What do you think these people with the need to control and direct
others would be doing if they weren't in government? Do you think they'd just go away?
Do you truly favor robber barons over our representative republic? Even with it's flaws?
What is your alternative? How do you think life should be structured?
Are people so afraid of someone dissenting ?
See, that's just the thing. I admire dissent. I admire reasonable argument and debate, not that what many of us "plebes" do will make that big a
difference in the long-run. But, I don't see any reason or rationality, by-and-large, in what you've said in this thread. All I see is rehashed
political rubbish. The same catch-phrases and watch-words. The predictable short, snide, quips that really say nothing. I don't mean to simply
critique your posting style ... but, I just don't see anything new, ever. It's the same thing in every thread, on every topic, no matter what the
circumstances are ... baseline repetition of garden-variety Republican/Right Wing/Fox News talking points.
That's not dissent, my friend ... that's regurgitation.
If the shoe fits, and it does fit so well.
Trying to control the water, the air, and the land.
THE ENTIRE WORLD.
The track record of the globalists for the last 30 years hasn't been so great.
Say hello to the 'new world order'.
Championed under the BS of 'saving the planet'.
So, barring your descent into familiar jingles and inane sloganeering ... your solution is that we should do NOTHING either individually or (gasp)
collectively to curb what other people choose to do to rape, pillage, destroy, befoul, defile or poison our world? To eventually make the place
unlivable for our children? We should just stand back and let them get away with it?
That just sounds cowardly and base to me, friend. I guess it's different for you.
