General Discussion / Re: Easy Nominee for Best Essay of the Year

Only two kinds of people. Those who want to control other people's lives and property. And those who do not.

All of the labels and shades of gray that people ascribe to this dichotomy merely muddy the waters. Nobody can be just a little bit pregnant - or a little bit dead.

But free speech wouldn't exist in a private property society.
How so? Only governments can censor. Private property owners decide whether guns will be allowed on their patch, but you wouldn't say that violates one's right to bear arms.

FTR I also didn't understand what Chris was trying to say with this, and I too am curious.  I'm sure it was something; I just don't know what.

The future is totalitarian leftist tyranny. How's that for optimistic?
That is a completely optimistic statement if you are in one of the "Protected classes". You know.....pretty much anything that isn't a white male of working age. ::)

Well, Chris is both of those so it doesn't seem like a distinguishing attribute to me.  The more troubling issue for me, which Chris and I have indirectly discussed before, is that he seems to believe that "leftist" is a relevant descriptor of "totalitarian tyranny."  It may be an accurate  summation of our current times, but I find it totally irrelevant with regard to the nature of the object.

> the philosophy itself

Ahem.

Jesus Christ, Jim. You know exactly what I mean, so work with me here.

Yes, of course and I already conceded that one's culture and upbringing have a big influence.  Beyond that, there's not much to say about it.  There's nothing at all wrong with referencing "the philosophy itself," but never at the expense of ignoring what it means.  Otherwise, it becomes a sort of bait-and-switch.  That's why I wrote that.

> I support state secession. If Virginia had a vote tomorrow on secession, I'd fucking vote for it in a heartbeat.

Of course you also believe that if 98% of Virginians voted for secession, it would be okay for it not to happen.  Goose, gander...if you don't consent to abide the vote, then neither should the others.

You understand better than most the nature of the whole thing...sheer force and power.  I just don't see much point in pretending that it's anything but.

speaking of genetics, i think that's really our biggest problem.  it's our mammalian nature to seek a social hierarchy.  our challenge becomes to transcend our nature,
To the contrary, our challenge is to restore the natural hierarchy for humans - the family, lead by the father.

the politicians understand and even rely on this.
Yes, the Marxists understand the family is the final redoubt against the State, hence they seek to destroy it.
