Democracy and libertarian state

Bella Gerens the wife of my revered Devil. Past yesterday, she made a tremendous piece of post, both quantity and quality, about the possibilities of creating a libertarian state.

In her article she talks about the revolutionary way, not feasible due to violence, and the democratic way, neither feasible because of the fact that libertarians will always be a minority in any state in which the more tax you pay, the less services you get, and vice-versa.

Her proposed solution, making a quick resume and citing her, we will not be able to see it, may be our children will not be able to see it neither, but it goes by creating a society so prosperous in which people will not need most of services now provided by governments, adding the possibility to purchase the rest cheaper elsewhere… but that could lead to a danger, consisting in some sort of Hamasization/Comando Vermelhization, etc…

Anyway, in order to get there, even if it takes decades, Gerens found her way: never, ever to shut up her bitching. I buy that!

Machomanism

During millennia, men had to prove their manhood in front of women. At the beginning, men went away from home during weeks, crossing iced steppes to confront and kill terrifying animals like mammoths … with their bare hands.

But times change, and now men keep on making traverses… changing “mammoths” for “tobacco”, and now getting the trip done under temperatures slightly under the ones felt at The Sun‘s surface, walking to the nearest tobacconist placed no less than 1 km away, and finally sweating themselves to death just after delivering the parcel into the hands of his loved one.

Never Mind the bollocks, here is Steve Jobs

Sometimes we become obsessed within our own lies, believing that it is really happening.

That’s precisely what is doing right now Steve Jobs. With all the shit that’s happening with the iPhone 4 issue(s), he does not say anything to his customers but to relax, to enjoy themselves because, at the end, it’s just a phone…

Oh yeah, a defective phone, Steve, do not forget about that…

So what

I use a lot of “So” in the beginning of sentences. Now there is some explanation about why that word jumped from the middle positions up to the pole.
