re: #250 CuriousLurker

Seriously, sometimes I think some people would prefer that we were a failed state like Somalia or Afghanistan where anyone can strap on a machine gun, gather a militia so he can be a warlord, then go shoot up the opposition and apply laws according to his personal preferences. Who needs civilization when we could be living in a Libertarian/Sovereign Citizen dystopia?

It all goes back to the premise that most Americans aren’t Real Americans. And that Real America is defined by affiliation with a select set of gatekeepers rather than principles.*

The USA, in turn, already a failed state because we’re diverse, precisely because of civil liberties that allow many worldviews to thrive.

The end is a collapse that leads to a re-definition of the nation. More and more, it is declared that this justifies any means.

*The collary of that statement being my often-repeated refrain that we’re dealing with people for whom morality emanates from affilation not concepts. Hence the almost-shamanic adoration of historic figures while simultaneously deforming them. Virtue by touching the saint’s bones rather than living by the saint’s example.
