Hi you guys! Joe Biden and the rest of the gang here! :) We’re looking for some awesome people to help us Kickstart our dream project of having a functioning federal government! That’s where you come in: all we’re asking for is a little help. And twenty trillion dollars.
As you may know, we (the United States government) are a little strapped for cash. Salvage a first-world government’s economy? In
Libertarians despise the government because the trolls that run it abuse their power while for some strange reason believe that the people running corporations are all descendents of Ghandi. Well, actually no, they couldn’t give a shit about Ghandi either, as he was obviously just another fame whore bent on “saving the world” and thus winning all the awards and accolades that go along with being The Great Philosopher of World Peace, and thus was no morally different than a CEO who happens to derive his/her personal reward in the form of money that is freely offered by consumers who obviously find merit in the product or service being offered. Be it world peace or Pepsi, consumers shape the world they want through the goods or services they demand. At some point it appears that people started to desire Pepsi more than World Peace, though this is obviously not the fault of Pepsi.
Where do we draw a line on hierarchy. Is submission to hierarchy truly acceptable if it is voluntary and the one who submits is socialized to submit? If one has no realization there is another option outside of submission does this justify the one who asserts authority over another? We see no violent persuasion. Where is the line of coercion? Media is a form of persuasion and coercion, so how do find a limit or line that is not crossed if any exists?
Real sugar is more expensive than fake sugar. It’s like we live in a world where what is natural is the hardest to get. Where what we can afford is worse for us.
The idea of love can be obtained easily at the cost of paper. I mean how much do prostitutes charge nowadays? $80? What they advertise is sex but what their clients really see is love. When you sell lawnmowers you are actually selling the lawn and the house sitting on it with a picket fence fantasized by all those who bought into this tangled web of security.
We trap our kind and consume them like it is natural. We have made our own kind of natural.
“We do not influence the course of events by persuading people that we are right when we make what they regard as a radical proposals. Rather, we exert influence by keeping options available when something has to be done at a time of crisis”—
The second law of thermodynamics is an expression of the tendency that over time, differences in temperature, pressure, and chemical potential equilibrate in an isolated physical system. From the state of thermodynamic equilibrium, the law deduced the principle of the increase of entropy and explains the phenomenon of irreversibility in nature. The second law declares the impossibility of machines that generate usable energy from the abundant internal energy of nature by processes called perpetual motion of the second kind.
“When one acts on pity against justice, it is the good whom one punishes for the sake of the evil; when one saves the guilty from suffering, it is the innocent whom one forces to suffer. There is no escape from justice, nothing can be unearned and unpaid for in the universe, neither in matter no in spirit—-and if the guilty do not pay, then the innocent have to pay it.”—
“If you need the government to protect your culture, it’s already dead. It’s like if you need armed guards to keep your wife in your house, your marriage is already dead. If you need violence to protect your ideas, your ideas are worthless to begin with.”—Thinksquad (via thinksquad)
