You do understand that Billy Beck wasn’t kidding when he said the following back in 2010:
…We now live under The Sucker State. There will be no voting our way out of this, and that is as it should be, in at least one aspect: free people do not supplicate to government. They become manifest in their actions. In any case, however, whole generations have gone down under the rampant delusion that the sources of life spring from everything but individual human productivity: they believe that government can steal for them forever.
The hideous noise that you hear all around you in this culture, now, is only the beginning intimation of how wrong they are. It is the sound of savages scrambling around the lip of the government cannibal-pot, into which all values must eventually be collected by force and from which they will be dispensed under heavy guard. If you are capable of one moment’s sense and are not a goddamned deliberate liar — like an ex-president — then you can see where this is all going…
Read the whole thing – carefully, for emphasis.
Then get back to work.
I will do the same.
