Statist Zombification of Non-Sequitur Logical Fallacy

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

(Donald J. Boudreaux) In his brilliant 1956 collection, Minority Report, H.L. Mencken stated:

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

“In recognition of your tireless efforts to defend those who subjugate and exploit you, and your ongoing devotion to fabricating excuses and justificatgions for both your own enslavement and the enslavement of your fellow man, you, _____________ are hereby awarded this Stockholm Syndrome Merit Badge
Know that you have earned the gratitude and heartfelt thanks of narcissistic megalomaniacs the world over, for helping them to enrich and empower themselves at the expense of everyone else.”

My Commentary: Horizontal enforcement, for the win!

Belief that the Government “Cares About” Humanity is as Laughable as Belief in Santa Claus

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

"Before you make fun of children for believing in Santa Claus, remember, there are still people who believe the gov't cares about them"

“Before you make fun of children for believing in Santa Claus, remember, there are still people who believe the gov’t cares about them”

My Commentary: But… “muh elected representatives” and “muh public servants”… 🙁
