"Soft statists" and the irredeemable statists

I have nothing but contempt for "government" and those who support it.

Well, that's not quite true.

I have a lot of pity for most "soft statists"- the people who are just statists because no one has ever expected more of them. The ones who are what they are because it's the "culture" they grew up in, and no one ever pointed out to them how inconsistent and hypocritical it is. And how it doesn't work because it can't work- new "laws" are clear evidence of this. They can be reached, with opportunity,  time, and patience.

I also have pity for elderly statists who can't seem to change a lifetime of indoctrination at this late date. They can't be reached, and do a lot of damage, but their time is running out.

My contempt is reserved for those who have been shown the nature of statism and still won't reject the evil. They've been shown a better way and still refuse to grow up. Those who look for any objection they can muster to keep stealing and committing acts of enforcement- or asking others to commit those acts of their behalf. And, yes, I realize a lot of it is grounded in cowardice- due to them being afraid to take responsibility for their own life. Or imagining horrible outcomes of Rightful Liberty while glossing over horrible outcomes of statism which are occurring all around them right now- no speculation required.

So, contempt and pity for statists. Pity for those never given the chance to reject statism, and contempt for those who have been shown better and still refuse to grow up.



  1. A tactic used by the Vietnamese in the Vietnam War was to hand a live grenade to a small child and have them run up to an unsuspecting US soldier to blow them both to bits. The children didn't know any better or have much of a choice. They were the innocent victims. Nonetheless, it put a soldier into the position of killing an innocent child or dying.

  2. A tactic used in the United States War on Drugs was to coerce frightened teenagers into serving as drug narcs and destroying homes and families and sometimes getting killed themselves. These young people didn't know better or have much of a choice. They, and the individuals and their families that they were forced to rat out, were all innocent victims. Nonetheless, it put a paycheck in the wallet of the clueless but cowardly and guilty soldier in this immoral war.

    1. You missed the point, idiot. So I will spell it out for you.

      It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with making comparison between 'innocent' parties and the effects of their actions.

      A 'soft statist' is like the innocent child. While they may be unwitting participants in a violent action, they nonetheless pose a threat. They may not know better, but they are still a threat that needs to be dealt with.

      Brush up on your comprehension and analytical skills for next time.
