Peel back the layers of any statist argument and you will quickly discover at its cold, dark heart the notion that you do not own your self. You are, to some degree, the property of another. As such, you are to be ruled, governed, harassed, intimidated, harangued, searched and taxed in whichever way the owner deems to be “in the interest of society.” It’s enough to make the questioning individual cry… or laugh… or both. Either way, their message is clear: Free men are not to be trusted with their own lives. It’s time to tell these people to mind their own [insert expletive of choice here] business.
The best way to get kids to read a book is to say: ‘This book is not appropriate for your age, and it has all sorts of horrible things in it like sex and death and some really big and complicated ideas, and you’re better off not touching it until you’re all grown up. I’m going to put it on this shelf and leave the room for a while. Don’t open it.

Isn’t it kind of fucked up how Kinder Eggs are illegal in America because they’re “too dangerous”, but you can get a gun in Walmart..
Might want to look into that a bit more.
It’s a bit silly to try to argue that candy is harder to get than firearms which are heavily regulated.
Kinder Eggs are actually widely available in the US. And yet another(as if the 1920’s wasn’t enough) good example of why the prohibition thing you support is a beyond an absolute failure.
You are the reason I do not need feminism.
Well this is just some fucked up garbage, isn’t it?
None of WAF had said anything like this
"Sometimes domestic violence is good for feminism."
They actually said something like that about Elliot Rodgers killing spree
What is it with feminists assuming that anyone who isn’t a feminist can’t form their own opinions and must be victims of misogyny in some way. It’s annoying as fuck.
It’s easier than making a counter argument
I am utterly disgusted. This is why I don’t support feminism anymore.

Ludwig von Mises and Batman
The Batman Chronicles #11 (Winter 1998)
Paul Pope’s Elseworlds Batman takes on Nazi Germany and rescues the personal library of Ludwig von Mises
~~~ ~ ~ ~~~
"…Ludwig Von Mises escaped to the United States when the Nazis ransacked his apartment in 1938. It was his landlady, a friend of his mother’s, who told the authorities Von Mises was working on a new book which challenged Nazi social and economic policies. They slowed him down, but they couldn’t stop him. He continued work on a book which was eventually published in ‘49, called ‘Human Action’, now considered one of the great libertarian works of our times. Von Mises anti-authoritarian ideas were first a threat to the Nazis, then the Soviets, and to all increasingly regulatory governments in our own times. He was against socialism in all its many forms. He was an advocate of individual liberty, free speech, and free thinking… and so, should I add, the Berlin Batman. The Batman, as we all know, got better at what he does, and the legends of his exploits continued to grow to this day."
Cops Beat This Father of Three to the Point of Hospitalization. 'Oh Sorry Wrong Guy' - informationliberation →
“All three of them started beating me on the head, it was unbelievable, I couldn’t believe it was happening to me.”
by Mike Sawyer
Roger Carlos was taking pictures of a building in the 10600 block of Westover Hills Boulevard in San Antonio, TX, when his life changed forever.
Carlos was photographing a building of what was soon to be home to his wife’s medical practice when all of the sudden he was ransacked by an undercover drug task force officer and two SAPD SWAT members.The officers were looking for Josue Gonzalez, who fled from police after they tried to arrest him for possessing a controlled substance.Gonzalez had ditched his car in the parking lot of a restaurant that happened to be a few hundred feet from where this father of three was excitedly taking pictures of his wife’s new venture.
Officers approached Carlos and before he could comply with their demands, they began to pummel him, striking him over 50 times.
“All three of them started beating me on the head,” said Carlos, ”It was unbelievable. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me.”
Bleeding and in handcuffs he wasn’t released until a fourth officer approached and said that the suspect was in custody nearby.
Carlos meanwhile, was hospitalized after the beating. He was treated for a large gash above his eye and a broken tooth.
Swelling of his head was so severe, doctors performed a CT scan of Carlos’ head as well.“I could understand taking somebody down hard. I can understand the need for that and securing them, but that’s not what happened. I got on the ground, I was no threat to anybody, I was fully compliant,” said Carlos, who has no criminal history.
The three officers who beat him, claim that Carlos had his hands underneath his body during the beating.
When KENS 5 news interviewed SAPD police chief William McManus, he stated that “Clearly it was a case of mistaken identity. From the report that I’ve read, from the photo that I saw and from your description, I’ve not seen anything at this point that would indicate to me that anything out of order happened.”
Just to recap, the chief of police thinks that an innocent man being beaten to the point of hospitalization by incompetent police officers mistaking him for another man, indicates that nothing “out of order happened.”
And this is the scenario that so many American citizens find themselves in today; an unapologetic brutal gang of uniformed thugs operating with almost zero accountability, laying waste to those who they’ve sworn to protect.
Carlos has filed a complaint against these officers with the FBI. We won’t be holding our breathe for the results of that investigation.
One thing is for certain, if any civil suit is brought forth, the monetary consequences from the negligent behavior of these cops will passed on to the tax-payer.
