Got Priorities?

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by Voluntaryist, Robert Higgs, and originally shared it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Robert Higgs: On any given day, the U.S. government murders innocent men, women, and children in various parts of the world or gives direct aid and comfort to those who do. From the American public comes barely a timid chirp of protest.

But let some nincompoop actress make a racist tweet, and all hell breaks loose. I hope no one is so dense as to imagine that I am defending the tweet, but I cannot help but notice how telling this event is in regard to the misplaced ideological priorities of the American public and the media who cater to it. Really, amigos, is a stupid comment on Twitter more important than your blessed state’s endless mass murder?

My Commentary: Got priorities?

Imagine No Countries and No Sociopathic, Narcissistic Pretenders “Ruling” Over Society

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared an acquaintance, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Image there are no countries. No sociopathic narcissists demanding that we kowtow to them, do what they tell us, and thank them for the privilege of lying helpless while they do what no one has a just right to do - at our expense. Imagine that these preposterous pretenders have been laughed off the stage. Imagine that we have finally awakened to an understanding of our natural rights and the need to insist that they be respected by everyone. Imagine. It's easy if you try. We would finally have emerged from our species' prolonged childhood and become mature human beings at last, no longer crying out for a stern and violent Big Daddy or Big Mommy to save us from the bogeyman they tell us are out there. Imagine. Sure, you may call me a dreamer, but I'm not the only one." - Robert Higgs

In Stagnant Pools of Filth, Scum Always Rises to the Top!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Free Talk Live,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"On Election Day, the voter is in the same position as someone who opens up his septic tank, gazes at the larger pieces that have floated to the surface, and announces, 'I like this one better than that one'." - Robert Higgs

My Commentary: In politics, much like all other stagnant pools of filth, the scum always rises to the top!
