Statist "logic" #2

in liberty •  4 months ago 


Going back to the programmable bullet killer drone issue, this particular statist claimed that only virtually unlimited government power could protect "the people" from these killer drones or other terrorist acts.

And, government can only protect you from terrorists when it sees all and knows all. So, trust government and don't worry about it getting more power and spying on everyone all the time. It's for your own safety.

That seems rather silly and poorly thought out. And dangerous.

Why trust government to protect me from terrorists when I trust government less than I trust other terrorists?

But these are YOUR terrorists who have YOUR best interests at heart! See the flags?

I did not even need to plug those words into my sarcasm detector!

George Carlin said it best: Israeli murderers are called commandos, Arab commandos are called terrorists. I've got one of my own: we used to be freethinkers, now we're wrongthinkers.
