arma virumque cano (et alia)
I would've thought that they ALL would have tanks; cuz that's the only way to make society polite is to arm everbody!
A picture of the world that E.N. and Laci want.
Greg, why do you (and your minions) take afright at the concept of ordered liberty and the right to exist peacefully in ones community? The policies that you associate with a "totalitarian" State, ensure life, liberty, and property against infringement by one's fellow citizen. here exists no more devious a means to degenerate a society, than to speak of "freedom" and "individual liberty", but show wanton disregard for fundamental rights such as the right to a safe and orderly community.There can be no liberty without subjugation, and the individual submission to the whim of the collective authority, for the benefit of all mankind.
But you repeat yourself.
No liberty without subjugation? Without individual submission to the whim of the collective authority?E.N., that's the comment of greatest evil that I've read on this site. You're quoting from 1984, but what you fail to recognize is that the novel is a warning, not a prophecy of hope.To everyone else, read E.N.'s comment and see where gun control and other forms of control lead. He's terrified of individual liberty. He sees all of us as fundamentally wicked and needing to be subjugated. Never allow him or his kind to gain power.
I wasn't quoting from 1984, although it is a beacon of hope, in the abyss of individuality.I support individual liberty, provided that it be reserved to myself.
Ooooooooooooh, that's gonna leave a mark, Greggy.Boy, you must be real excited about that gunzloonzwetdream of a movie, "Red Dawn", the re-make which is opening soon. You guyz'll teach them dogeating NoKo's a thing or six. Yeah, I can see it now; after the People's Liberation Army mops up the west coast (liberal punks there will prolly all be collaborators!) they'll be headin' for the heartland. All that will stand between the GODLESS heathen sortachinee and MurKKKa's kiddies and wimmenfolks is Prof. Greg Camp and his trusty sixgunz. I hope that they intend for the movie to be a comedy. The notion of North Korea invading the U.S. is so fucking far from reality that it's not even wrong.
Are you off your meds again? Just hold out a couple of more days Demmie. The government check should be in the mail any day now.
I wasn't planning to watch the remake. The Chinese whined about how they were portrayed, so the gutless producers changed the bad guys to North Koreans. I don't patronize wussies.
