The Purge

VERBATIM POST

As a thought experiment, ponder this question. "To create my ideal form of government, exactly who do I have to kill?"

To the Founding Fathers, the answer was "enough British Soldiers to win our Independence." To Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot, it was "anyone who stands in my way." To Abraham Lincoln it was "as many as it takes to preserve the Union."

To many here in our own society who believe in a benevolent one world government run by the bestest wisest scientieist politicians ever it is "anyone who doesn't buy our bullshit about global warming." The calls for "re-education camps" and mass killings have already started, and if enough people tell the Big Lie long enough they'll get the sheep to believe it. Four legs good, two legs better. We have always been at war with....

It is an interesting thing to ponder, the killing of other human beings purely for ideological reasons. The other side, the statists and anti-liberty thugs all have their excuses. Traitor to the Revolution, bourgeoisie, Christ Killing Jews, whatever the label there have been enough people who have bought into those labels to literally murder millions of people who spoke the same language as their executioners.

Our Founding Fathers shot and killed men who spoke their language, were born in the same area, and kept on killing them with the help of those who spoke a different language, all because of political ideology.

It was easier in WWI when the opponent spoke German, and easy again in WWII with the Germans and Japanese. During the Cold War it was simple to hate the Godless Communists. But the enemy of freedom speaks your language, looks like you, and may even share the same blood. People often forget that our "Revolutionary War" was nothing more than a Civil War that succeeded from our point of view.

So, who would you kill? Would your ideal government be worth it?
