All this censorship is supposed to do something, isn't it?

https://reason.com/2019/09/07/dont-just-do-something-2/?utm_medium=email

The lead paragraph of the essay:

"I don't know what the answer is," Kacey Musgraves shouted during her set at Lollapalooza on August 7, "but obviously something has to be crappity smacking done." The country music star then led her fans in a chant that perfectly encapsulates the future of American politics: "Somebody crappity smacking do something!" she screamed. "Somebody crappity smacking do something!" the crowd screamed back."

Hey, read it in the article, it really loses something by being bowdlerized into "crappity smacking". Cry

"Do something" is dem-speak for

"force other people to do something they don't want to do, even if you're not sure it will actually help."

When the dems say "do something about gun violence", they mean confiscate & ban guns.

When the dems say "do something about hate speech" they really mean infringe on 1st Amendment rights.

When the dems say "do something about poverty" they really mean have the government redistribute wealth from productive people to non-productive people.

On a Seastead, these types of people would be banished.

You ultra-rich people are so lucky to have these seasteads to escape to...

What do the Republicans mean when they say "something needs to be done"?

Same thing as the democrats.  They just want government to redistribute the monies a little differently.

They want them to bail out too-big-to-fail lending institutions and Buy mega-expensive military toys from the M.I.C.

In the end, it's all redistribution.  Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

They've always tried, and almost always been successful. I hope we can stop them again, this time in America. Smiley
