Z Man: The Power Of Belief


Or, “The Willing Suspension Of Logic & Reason Because Feelz”.

There are a lot of them.

And they want power.

    This was left on the forum comments board, what a wonderfully accurate assessment: “The way I look at libertarians is they are the guy in the trench who will start shooting their comrades rather than go over the top and face the enemy.”

  2. I have come to understand, through trial and error, that
    when someone, or in concert with others, are “not right
    in the head,” that him/her/they take out their aggressions on
    those that love them the most. When that happens, after much
    patience and perseverance, that is when Tough Love kicks in.

    “Every man to his family and his belongings”

  3. “At the heart of their zeal lies the age old religious impulse to save the world.”

    Almost. At the heart of their zeal lies the age old religious impulse that they are GOOD and therefore “ought” to “save” the world, forming it in their own “worthy” image.

    Religion = mans own efforts to earn favor with God and to assuage His anger. How many religions exist today??? How many religious wars are fought? “God is with us!” “No He’s not. God is with us!” Um… He ain’t with either of ya.

    Rom 3:12… “They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”

    God gave a single perfect religion to a small group of people to prove to them that it was impossible to follow. Man has yet to figure that out. He just wants to make stuff up as he goes to suit himself.

  4. “He just wants to make stuff up as he goes to suit himself.”

    To make the stronger point: “…you shall be as Gods…” (Gen 3:5)

  5. I’ll see your less than accurate broad-brush comment and raise:
    “Ok, I get it. You fucks are closet NeoCons!”

  6. Maybe it’s because the asshole in the trench nearby IS the enemy.

    Don’t want to be shot? Then leave libertarians the fuck alone.

  7. Excellent strengthening, thank you. And, sharpening to ultra fine… it’s little “g” gods.

    Gen 3:5 (KJB)… “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

    Eve must have been able to see for herself how magnificent lucifer (Ezekiel 28:12-17), the god of this world (2 Cor 4:3-4) and those angels who followed him were; not content as created in innocence, desiring to be “like” them, she believed his lie and did not follow Gods single command. Lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh, pride of life. Got us all…

    Thank God the cross takes us from the image of (man) ourselves (Gen 5:3) and, upon salvation, places us back into the image of Him who made us. Ain’t no way we could have accomplished as much on our own.

    2 Cor 3:18… “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

    “Maybe it’s because the asshole in the trench nearby IS the enemy.”

    That still leaves the libertarian as an enemy.

  9. I have trouble making any sense of what I read at Z-blog, because it quickly gets too complicated for me to follow as any kind of logical thread. There seems to be a lot of confusion in the comments, too. Libertarians want what they want, whatever that is, and the others want something different. Ok. But trying to put everyone each in their particular basket is a waste of time and effort. Each person veers in their beliefs, and none will ever agree TOTALLY with others, even of the same stripe. It’s why we get together, hammer out the differences, and come up with some kind of plan that most can go along with, obviously not completely satisfying everyone, and with clauses that shelter minority positions from being too butthurt. Other wise, give it a fucking rest. I don’t think even Libertarians themselves can define what they are. At any rate, they’re not liable to take over the American political scene any time soon. They should just call themselves Independents.

    (In loco parentis liability & too irresponsible for guns=too irresponsible to vote/use motor vehicles legltn might be useful approaches against the above)

    (Dare we hope that the appropriately modified methodology used for the ‘marriage equality’ campaign will be availed of in one for the above?)

    Rebuttals to the above 2 items.:

    (As before, having in loco parentis liability & too irresponsible for guns=too irresponsible to vote/use motor vehicles legltn ready would generate much consternation among campus carry opponents that’d be quite entertaining to behold & also very revealing about the anti-2A/pro-thug cult’s mentality)
