A Perfect Example

 
This is a shining example of the “collapse” root. It is a pristine example of moral decay and cowardice, intellectual bankruptcy, mind numbing irrationality, and the attempt by some to force contradiction into reality. And this is a man paid huge sums of money to report “the news”.

Everything coming out of Chris Matthews mouth is an inversion of reality.

When he says “ability to pay”, what he really means is being punished for your success. The more successful you become, the larger the chunk of your property should be taken from you via violence. By this logic, the most successful person in the country should be “allowed” to keep 0% of their money. They should be starved to death for being so successful.

When Chris says “helping people”, what he actually means is hurting people. Which is a soft way of saying “I will accomplish good by evil means”. Yet, evil means are incapable of producing good ends. Evil produces evil. Good produces good. An apple produces an apple tree. Humans produce humans.

Apples do not produce orange trees. Humans do not produce turkeys.

Notice how Chris avoids the questions of the interviewer. He avoids them because he is incapable of answering them. He is incapable of honestly answering them because the questions are adequately fundamental — to the point that they allow no room for dishonesty. If Chris were to honestly answer them it would be the equivalent of psychological suicide. It would be the equivalent of fully admitting, to his own self, that he were fundamentally evil.

Even murderous dictators like Adolph Hitler retain a pretense of “good”. On a much smaller, and less obvious scale, this is the evasion of reality that Chris practices.

That you have rights only so long as they are convenient for the majority. Which means you have no rights at all.

This is the literal meaning of most political discussion today. This is the root of political and moral collapse. If this trend is not reversed with a real time gamechanger, like Ron Paul, the only possible conclusion is total collapse. The translation of this into every day life is widespread pain, suffering, and the destruction of most if not all of your values, including the individual people you care about most.

A vote for anyone but Ron Paul in 2012 is a vote for death and destruction.

    What you’re saying(I’m trying to be agnostic in this for a moment) is that we shouldn’t have the “social safety net” because to have it you need money and money doesn’t come from nowhere so they take it from others or print it from the federal reserve. And you shouldn’t pay an income tax because the government is not supposed to do that, they are only supposed to enforce life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and the laws and amendments that can comply with that.

    What is your view on being poor and not having the ability to live means that your right to live is not present?

    I personally think that being poor doesn’t mean that your right to live has been revoked, but we should educate people enough so they know that they can get out of it even in the worst situations. And that the laws in place should be there so there are situations that the individual can try(which means enough food to live and the opportunity for a job or another way to make money).

    I also think that there should be laws in place that prevent the taking advantage of the situation for evil purposes that could prevent another person’s base rights.

    My second question is, how does the government pay for the enforcement of these laws and of the ability to run in general in these taxes and the federal reserve were eliminated?

      Daniel, I’m not saying we shouldn’t have a “social safety net”, or that we should have one. I’m questioning why anyone in government is even talking about it in the first place.

      If I were to run for president tomorrow and someone asked me what I thought about “social safety nets”, I would refuse to answer the question.

      I am rejecting it’s fundamental relevance to the institution of government, especially large ones.

      You should not pay an income tax because you have a right to your life, your liberty, and your property. Wealth is property. You have a right to every ounce of it.

      I am not interested in what government is “supposed to” be doing, as if it were a matter of opinion. I am interested in what it has been authorized to do in the first place. I am interested in this because I do not believe I have the luxury to ponder what government should be tinkering with superficially.

      If you are poor and do not have the means to live, then you are poor and do not have the means to live.

      What does this have to do with any other human being on the planet? Your need for food, water, shelter, and clothing does not supersede my right to my life, liberty, property, and pursuit of happiness.

      This is the lie you’ve been fed: need overrules right. Misery overrules happiness. Sacrifice the good for the evil. The men of ability to the incompetent.

      Hang them, nail them to a cross, sacrifice the men of the mind for the “good of all”. I hope you are beginning to understand how morally and intellectually toxic this way of life and of thinking is.

      ~~~

      Being poor does not negate your right to life — and it does not negate mine. This does not mean you will live. If you can’t feed yourself, and no one is willing to be generous and donate food to you, you die.

      I hope you understand that anything to the contrary would be evil.

      ~~~

      Your final question is based on false premises. Why are you asking me this question? You are asking it because you have assumed government is incapable of funding itself without stealing from other people by the threat of a gun.

      Who told you this? Did you come to this conclusion on your own? Or were you fed this your entire life in an authoritarian, decaying educational system?

      Do intelligent people believe that government — the protector of individual rights — can only be funded by violating individual rights?

      This about how absurd and ridiculous this sounds. It’s a contradiction flat on it’s face.

    Hi!

    Quick question : What are my sole rights as a human being?

    Shawn

      Is there significance to the word “sole” in your question? Not sure if that was intended to mean anything extra in the question.

  3. Shawn February 7, 2012 at 1:26 pm #

    No, it doesn’t mean anything “extra”. Phrased in another way: what are my human rights as a human being? The rights you build your worldview upon, and from which you deduct what is right and wrong in life.

    You are inaccurate to state that Chris Matthews is paid to report the news. He is not, nor has he ever been a journalist or reporter on MSNBC. He is a political commentator/pundit and that is what he is paid to do. Infact, like Fox most of the shows on MSNBC are commentary and not news. Alternative news sources are your best bet, Main Stream Media should not be confused with unbiased reporting.

    I appreciate and respect your opinions. I do not agree with everything you state, and to be honest it would be pretty creepy if I did. My views on income taxes is about the same as my view on religion. I am an Agnostic. I question whether the Government has the right to forcefully tax our income. The IRS is a lot like religion. They are selling you on an invisible product, there is no proof you are required to pay these taxes, the verbiage in the tax code is purposely confusing and contradictory, and you are threatened to live a life in hell if you do not pay remittance to the IRS. The IRS pretends to do a lot of good with the taxes it collects. Additionally the IRS will bend you over and rape you like an altar boy when ever they desire.

    While income taxes are concerning, I do believe as a society there should be a safety net for the poor, the sick and the elderly. However, I am definitely against corporate welfare and bailouts. Why should I have to pay for a corporation or financial institution that goes belly up? Why should people get tax breaks if there investments lose money? In my opinion, Wall Street is legalized gambling. The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward and vice versa. You place your bets, roll the dice, and if you crap out, too bad. While I am also not a fan of Income Tax, I do believe if they are going to remain, that gains made on investments should taxed the same as salaried income. do not believe investing should provide a tax advantage to anyone. Yep there is risk, but there is also reward too.

    As far as the wealthy paying more money, I have no issues with that. Rich people created their own luck on the backs of public schools systems, government, public highways and transportation systems, state universities, public airports, public utility companies, etc. If you are successful you have society to thank for that and you should probably give more in terms of donations, charities, public service and if necessary taxes. Right now I pay a much larger percentage of my income then most millionaires pay. Is that fair? Absolutely Not. Should I be penalized for not making as much money as a millionaire ? Absolutley Not. I make well over six figures a year, and Percentage wise I pay more in taxes than a person making seven or more figures a year. Kinda sucks.

    Hey Anthony,

    Got a really quick important question:

    Do you invest in gold/silver assets personally or through your corporation?
