Discussing the “Extremism” of Being Anti-War

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “‘Extremist,’ You Say?“…

Rayn:

“If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want the government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist.” – Joseph Sobran

DemoRepubliCrats: (n) a group of Americans who vote to centralize their moral bankruptcy, murderous criminality, and insatiable desire for unrestricted control over the lives of others, into the shape of a violent, coercive, non-corporeal, unaccountable military-industrial plutocracy referred to as the “State,” largely in a legal effort to shield all individual members of said cabal from judicial prosecution, by diffusing and ultimately obscuring all personal accountability and private responsibility from the equation, while simultaneously creating a “legal” pretext for severely punitive, “State”-based enforcement of both 100% sponsorship for, and 100% participation in, said criminal racket, through use of extortion, conscription, violence, theft, kidnapping and imprisonment – all to the extreme detriment of the peaceful, non-consenting individuals who either currently live, or were originally born, within the imaginary borders of the “State.”

[note: being staunchly anti-war (i.e. terrorism, drugs, etc.), regardless of party lines, I’ve learned to take these “extremist” and “radical” labels being thrown at me by DemoRepubliCrats as a “Badge of Honor”! Why, thank you for noticing that I’m in no way affiliated with your despicable death-gang! Props to you!]

Brian J.: So what’s your solution? I hear complaints about Government, religion, and a lot of other things. The one similarity between aspies and atheists, is that we like to complain a lot, and not do anything. So what’s our solution?

Brooke N.: Well stated. Most of us agree on what is wrong but there’s a lot of disagreement on how to fix it, and there are a lot of obstacles in the way (mainly our “representatives” in government who really represent themselves, and their corporate sponsors, and the media who serve them also) in the way of change. Some people want to use violence, many have some original and compelling solutions, most are not in a position to so much. I sort of visualize this cauldron of ideas bubbling around. People are thinking just now about solutions, thinking of alternative ways to govern. At some point I hope that the pot will boil down and distill the best of those ideas, do away with left/right polarities and become practical, peaceful, participatory ways to govern. I hope it doesn’t boil over instead.
