: Well, I can see that nothing has changed during my absence. I wonder, does Lark's post count as an example of paranoia? They? Who is 'they'?
The Militia Movement and every armed neo-conservative 'individualist'
The United Klans of America,
The Aryan Nation(s),
US Political Soldiers,
The American Legion,
The Minute Men,
The World Church of the Creator,
The Christian Identity Cult,
The Freemason 'Illuminati' who control the banking and insurance systems globally from the US,
Etc. Etc. Etc. (EG that's all that come to mind just now).
: Anyways, what in the world is wrong with being armed to the teeth? The folks up in Idaho, I learned, have relatively easy access to weapons, much easier than here in California, yet have a much lower homicide rate than Ca. But in localities with tons of laws directed at idiots, notably Washington DC, the homicide rates are out of sight.
This isnt an anti-guns post it is an anti-armed and violent capitalists post.
: Switzerland is another example of folks being armed to the teeth but not creating havoc because weapons (real assault weapons, not what the pols say is an assault weapon).
Why is that possibly they dont have a laissez faire hell, racism and 'neo-conservatism'.
: Isreal? Same thing.
Isreal is a state in perpetual war, it doesnt matter how much homocide you commit out there as long as your an isreali citizen taking out palistinians (Oops! Better what out for Mossad)
: The notion that there is a correspondence between the number of weapons and the number of violent crimes committed is an old wives tale, like the notion that Communism can be made to work. Without brute state force anyways.
Here's a fact:
Neo-conservative individualism + Popular American Conservative fiction(The Turner Diaries) + Access to the internet = Oklahoma Massacre of the Innocents.
: Besides, given the comparative histories of capitalism (which is lifeless on it's own; it does need a political framework in which to survive, ie; the Constitution and the Bill of Rights)and Communism, which is both an economic and political system, anyone can see that it's the Communist state that produces not goods, but corpses.
Do I care? The violent threat is from racist, nazi, neo-conservatives who seem to have survived 'post-modernism'without flinching. There isnt any Commies etc. to blame your internationally fucked up economy on now loser, Soros and all the former free market profiteers are thinking, hey, maybe we should be sensible about this now.
