Sultan Knish: Evil Is The Motive Of Evil

“…Evil in all its forms wants absolute power over people. The ultimate form of absolute power over another human being is murder. It is the acts that killers commit that tell us what they truly are…”

And since totalitarians are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals, so too must freedomistas be equally willing.

Ol’ Remus: Default Looms, And The Scramble Is On

screw giant
…The economy has failed. We’re insolvent and well into the maneuvering phase. It’s both different and the same as “the” Depression. In the 1930s, bank runs happened on the streets, this time they happened on the upper floors of financial institutions, although at the start there was a parallel run on ATMs. By all accounts it was a bloodbath. By all accounts the Federal Reserve was more helpful than their charter, or even simple ethics, allowed. Meanwhile, our creditors see us paying debt with more debt and getting close to where we can’t even meet the carrying charges and interest. And worse, we’re spiraling into a black hole of prior commitments that couldn’t be met by a galaxy of tax-paying planets.

Anybody solvent is tip-toeing away, the rest are going Galt or long torches and pitchforks…

…The conclusion I have come to is simply this: they mean to take everything I have, imprison everyone I care about, and if possible, take me alive and torture me for the names of everyone I know. That’s enough for me…
