Cranky and wallowing in it

Am I imagining things, or are statists getting crankier? Especially when called out for their statist nonsense. They lately seem more desperate to justify their archation, and more bizarre in their criticisms of liberty.

In a lot of ways, things aren't going at all well for me right now. But I'm not angry at the world and trying to take it out on everyone. It is what it is, and it's not "the World's" fault.

Yet, it seems like that's the case with so many statists recently. Just angry, spiteful, and hateful. Willing to take their frustration out on anyone who crosses their path. Especially someone who calls them out on their hypocrisy, inconsistency, or lack of rationality.

Maybe it's just that I'm less diplomatic than at other times in the past, but I'm seeing it in lots of places, and not only in response to me. So that makes me believe it's not just me.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is this what encountering those on the losing side of history looks like?


Reminder: I could really, really use some help.

This blog is my job.
YOU get to decide if I get paid.


  1. It does seem like many more people are laying the blame for whatever their pet peeve is on government error, corruption etc. So government is being questioned. Unfortunately, many of the people complaining haven't realized, yet, it's a systemic problem, coercion based government itself, rather than the particular politicians or bureaucrats they don't like. That cognitive dissonance thing is pretty hard to shake.

    Honest introspection and identifying root causes are things humans learn to avoid. Rather, I should say, are TAUGHT to avoid. That's why blogs like yours which challenge people to actually think for themselves are so important. Keep up the good work.

    1. "If only we could elect the right people..."

    2. Kent for president!!! If only we elected you to be president, all our troubles would be over, we'd all be unimaginably wealthy, nobody would have to work, it would be paradise!

    3. Sounds like you are nominating me to be god-- since I'd have to have the ability to alter the nature of reality to give everyone all that stuff. LOL
