Wish somebody would subsidize my sloth.

Well…anybody but the government.  Though, technically, the latest lack-of-blogging is more due to apathy.  Apparently news has become too outrageous and has blown all of my circuit breakers.  Put simply:  America is rapidly transforming into Airstrip One.

The appropriate reaction to statist welfare, assuming one cares enough to fight, isn’t in tough-sounding phrases like “government’s perversion”.  Ooooh, so butch!  Such a courageous group of (unnamed) Trib editorial writers!  Government’s perversion.

There is no such thing as government perversion.  You may as well rant about the perfidy of cutlery or the immorality of nightstands.  Governments are tools, and have no moral dimension whatsoever.  True, all of you vertebrate creatures seem to disagree, but that has absolutely no bearing on the truth.

Those editorial writers accuse the government of perversion because the actual truth is too impolite.  It’s not the state that’s perverse, it’s the millions of people who act in its name or sell it their dignity for a bowl of stew.

Instead of punching the wind, the Trib writers should be hitting people.  By people, I mean specific human beings; by hitting I mean “calling them perverts.”

YOU:  “You support education subsidies and home mortgage deductions, right?”

THEM: “Of course!”

YOU:  “Why?

THEM:  “Because, obviously, we want as many educated and home-owning people as possible.”

YOU:  “But don’t you also support government welfare and subsidized single motherhood?”

THEM:  “Of course!”

YOU:  “Pervert.”

That is the only way to accomplish what the Trib editorial board apparently desires.  Not a useless diatribe against a faceless government; ten million buckets of cold water thrown in ten million individual faces.

Good luck with that.

    Hey, how about a post regarding nuclear war, fallout and the prospects of surviving a nuclear blast, providing one doesn’t live too close to a major urban center?
