Be careful — don’t meddle with men’s minds! Men’s minds can be forced down or boosted up, but this downing and upping imprisons and brings death to the mind.
Zhuangzi, The Complete Works of Zhuangzi, Watson tr. (Ch 11)

“The real cause for the fall of nations is the inability of mankind to solve the SOCIAL, MORAL and SPIRITUAL problems. So long as the struggle for existence is such that only the fittest can survive, there is a healthy development under the sway of individualism. When reaction sets in the individual is eliminated, original effort and initiative suppressed and the creative faculties impaired, the race gradually lapses into savagery and perishes. A similar end threatens our present civilization.”
-Nikola Tesla
(To a journalist of the New York Times, 1920.)

Yes, this bill does go after people who pirate music and movies, but since basically all memes include *some* copyrighted content of *some* kind, and the bill is worded so broadly, and literally everyone on the internet is exposed to memes in some way or another, the government just gave itself the power to selectively throw whoever they want in federal prison at any given moment.
Oh but we got $600 of our own dollars given back to us so this is fine, right??!?!

When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
Thomas Jefferson

It’s hilarious to watch all the so-called anarchists and communists enforcing the “get vaxxed and mask up!” rhetoric. “No Gods, no masters” except the government and big pharma. They’re all full of shit. They don’t believe in liberty or autonomy in any meaningful sense. Their politics is one big performance.

Political freedom without economic equality is a pretense, a fraud, a lie; and the workers want no lying.

are you ever studying and just randomly have this brain wave about how nothing really matters?? you'll probably forget whatever it is that you're learning right now?? there's so much more to life than just some grades, exams, jobs, money, etc?? humans aren't meant to work 60 hours a week?? we were meant to be free and run around barefoot in forests and watch the sunset and swim in the oceans and try to enjoy our lives to the fullest?? capitalism has ruined our lives and there's nothing we can do about it???
