I am going to rob you, and I have the moral authority to do so!

Sometimes I come across videos on the internet that are just downright striking for various reasons. Be it aesthetics or message, the ones that really get my goat are satirical in nature.

"So, if you can have all your valuables laid out by noon tomorrow so I can see which of your stuff I want to take..."

That line in particular had me laughing pretty damn heartily.

The frightening thing is, this is essentially what the CotUS says. Now I would really like to know by what authority - other than coercive threat of violence - am I required to follow a covenant that I have not signed? What recourse does a citizen have, when the heinous grievance one wants redressed is the very existence of the government itself?

Since the criminal enterprise of malevolent jobholders have done a mighty fine job of convincing folks that theft, when government sanctioned is a "good" thing. It is obvious to me that voting wont get me relief from the multi tentacled thieves, though I must concede that it may get me an ever so slight and ludicrously temporary reprieve. As I have stated before and elsewhere this is still not incentive enough to vote.

Is thievery a moderate imperfection of government? I don't think so, I truly believe that we are under the regimen of our barbarous ancestors.

Found the embedded video here, which is another can of awesome in and of itself.

You are a freeloader?

How do you feel about condo dues? Should condo owners be required to pay them or should it be optional?

What sort of social contract do you think you have with the rest of the citizens? What is your obligation to your nation, if any?

Are you a registered voter? Do you vote? Are you only obligated to honor the outcome of an election or vote when your side wins?

Easy to answer. I'll answer,

Easy to answer. I'll answer, for example:

You are a freeloader?

No.

How do you feel about condo dues?

No problem with condo dues.

Should condo owners be required to pay them or should it be optional?

In a typical case, required.

What sort of social contract do you think you have with the rest of the citizens?

None. I don't think of natural law in terms of the metaphor of contract. It's not a completely useless metaphor, but it does more mischief than good.

What is your obligation to your nation, if any?

To respect natural law.

Are you a registered voter?

Yes.

Do you vote?

In the past, but not in the last few years.

Are you only obligated to honor the outcome of an election or vote when your side wins?

I'm never (morally) obligated to honor the outcome of an election no matter who wins.

Oops, I misread one question.

Oops, I misread one question. I misread:

What is your obligation to your nation, if any?

as

What is your obligation to your neighbor, if any?

To which I answered that my obligation to my neighbor is to respect natural law. But I have no moral obligation to my nation, so my answer to the actual question asked should have been "none".

You are a freeloader? No, If

You are a freeloader?

No, If by that question you are asking if I am a "free rider" in the system. I am a member of the productive class.

How do you feel about condo dues?

They are something you agree to when you purchase your condo. You signed on the dotted line, so you follow the letter of the CCR or face sanction.

What sort of social contract do you think you have with the rest of the citizens?

None.

What is your obligation to your nation, if any?

None. There is no nation, only individuals living their lives without ever knowing who I am.

Are you a registered voter?

Nope.

Do you vote?

No.

Are you only obligated to honor the outcome of an election or vote when your side wins?

No. I do not associate with thieves.

It must be lonely

to be a lone wolf without a pack.

Rejection of certain dubious

Rejection of certain dubious assumptions about society is not the same thing as rejection of society.

Heh.

Now that is something I can sign!

Why I am required to

Why I am required to recognize what you call your property, when I have never agreed to it?

You are not required to

You are not required to recognize my property for me to have property. Although you would be ill advised to act upon your misconceived notions of my property.

You may not recognize that a loincloth is property of the paleolithic man who is wearing it, but if you find a time machine you would be ill advised to grab for his crotch, regardless of your philosophical musings.

You would also be ill-advised

You would also be ill-advised to try to interfere with the government's tax collection.

Hooray! We are now at Moldbuggian Formalism.

You would also be ill-advised

You would also be ill-advised to hide Jews in your attic in Nazi Germany. Hooray for Hitler.

But sometimes

Sometimes you gots to do something just because it is right.

Which includes resiting

Which includes resiting tyranny enacted by criminals for demonstrably criminal purposes. Theft is theft and murder is murder, regardless of the inscribed metallic chip the goons carry.

Our owners don't care if you vote

An honest politician - when you buy him, he stays bought. Our owners have bought both parties, own the military, and will buy anything that reverses the flow of hard assets from the workers to themselves. Their most important asset is raw life & death power over the rest of us.
