You won’t even notice how tense you are after awhile. Forget mercifully letting muscles relax for a moment, as contraction is how they become fit. Plus, you want to be prepared for the upcoming disaster, whatever it is.

Endless panic is the default setting. Your decisions exposed you to potential…

Ruin finances to save Earth. Oh: you find the first more valuable? I guess globe-punching for a buck beats doing it just for fun. The profit contraption is a supremely cruel device designed to create nothing but profits for those born owning it. Meanwhile, self-made humans turn on cruelly indifferent…

A slower cancer lets you live longer. Still, it might be preferable to never get sick. The uncivil civil war ceaselessly waged by government-lovers over just how much to get up in your grill shows why they loathe competition. It’s too bad those discussing your affairs refuse to learn how…

Doing what you’d like is cruel to society. Haven’t you thought of others? Selfishness now means not surrendering to what others demand. Those demanding compliance with what they wish are truly thinking of others. They just happen to think compliance with their own needs is paramount.

I still can’t believe…

If government fixes everything, it can’t stop. Cruel businesspeople keep breaking our world out of greed of selling us things. Heroes struggle to get full nights of sleep. The benevolent apparatus’s fortunate beneficiaries might take an increasingly perfected life for granted. That must be the reason your beloved rulers keep…

It’s not like you can dissent. Arguments based in force never quite seem designed to facilitate discussion. Once you have government on your side, disagreement is illicit. Its gloriously slavish fans, who call law enforcement supporters bootlickers, happen to be advocating on behalf of cases where nobody is permitted to…

There’s good news if you believe in science. Unfortunately, the rather nerdy update means many alleged adherents of the futuristic faith have been full of it. So many people who want to forfeit property and autonomy to those in power for its proper distribution may be shocked to learn they…

Government fans oppose competition for ideas, too. The pushiest amongst us try their hardest to apply principles at every level. Maintaining a philosophy is unimpressive if it involves silly notions.

Presuming there is no disagreement surely makes rotten views palatable. There’s no way to legitimately dissent from those who identify…

I’ll tell on you. Appealing to authority remains as mature as it seemed in fourth grade. Narcing for the benefit of mindless power is the basis for a major political philosophy if you wonder why progress hasn’t occurred as inevitably as anticipated. The president promised we’d be wealthy by now.

Life promises you nothing. Phew. The awareness that this dumb world is indifferent to your ceaseless needs at least provides motivation. What might seem to spur trepidation may as well be used to establish character. We’ll starve outside without working no matter the outlook.

Realizing there’s no way to know…
