    Meh... so what? Those people will load up on to another platform, which will go bad, and so on and so forth. What is needed is a true P2P messenger sort of deal such that nobody is able to delete or censor other users, save in those channels over which they have control such as their personal pages and groups they've established. We have the technology. We could make it happen. Perhaps I should start this.... call it... I dunno... facenode.com? No... facenode.org. That's the ticket!

    That is a fairly important bit of information. I'd think the author would have placed that directly in his work rather than abstracted by a layer. At best this is sloppy work.

    You could be correct, but so far as my scan indicates, there appears to be insufficient data in the article to draw a reliable conclusion. The article is written in typically poor form, whether intentionally or otherwise, leaving readers to draw tacit inferences and even conclusions based on very fuzzy innuendo.

    Once again Juan shows he is either intellectually deficient, this time to a frightening depth, or is just being a dick. The question of whether Kolfage is a scammer is irrelevant to the issue at hand, which is that FB shut him off with no due process. FB are assholes... really big, sore-riddled, unwashed, abominably stinky sphincters not to be trusted for anything save that they will stick something large and unpleasant in your bootus-hole, given half a chance. Now, perhaps you like that kind of thing, which would go a long way toward explaining why you appear to be defending those douchebags.

    Depends on what the relevant agreements say. FB could be in breach, in which case disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids may take them to the cleaners. Other possibility is that disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids failed to read the agreements carefully where some fine print clearly provided for FB's authority to do as they did, in which case disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids is probably SOL. Just because he is a disabled vet with terminally hot wife and beautiful kids, he doesn't get a pass on the latter, unless he is brain-damaged, in which case we have a real problem. What I don't understand is why anyone would do business with FB. Firstly, they are scummy, lowlife trash so far as I am concerned. I'd not give them a penny. Secondly, they are not to be trusted to the end of one's nose. What possesses people... oh, yeah... ignorance and greed. Never mind.

    Except for the fact that Israel has been a pretty lousy ally. I've nothing againt them, mind you, but to say that a nation that was caught with its pants at its ankles spying on the people who made and continue to make their very existence possible a "good ally" doesn't even merit ridicule. It is a subridiculous assertion. Never mind them firing on American sea vessels. I wish them all the best - theirs is a tough row to hoe. But never tell me the lie that they are good allies.

    (Part III) I COME NOW to a point which is, in my opinion, the mainspring and the secret of domination, the support and foundation of tyranny. Whoever thinks that halberds, sentries, the placing of the watch, serve to protect and shield tyrants is, in my judgment, completely mistaken. These are used, it seems to me, more for ceremony and a show of force than for any reliance placed in them. The archers forbid the entrance to the palace to the poorly dressed who have no weapons, not to the well armed who can carry out some plot. Certainly it is easy to say of the Roman emperors that fewer escaped from danger by aid of their guards than were killed by their own archers.18 It is not the troops on horseback, it is not the companies afoot, it is not arms that defend the tyrant. This does not seem credible on first thought, but it is nevertheless true that there are only four or five who maintain the dictator, four or five who keep the country in bondage to him. Five or six have always had access to his ear, and have either gone to him of their own accord, or else have been summoned by him, to be accomplices in his cruelties, companions in his pleausres, panders to his lusts, and sharers in his plunders. These six manage their chief so successfully that he 18 Almost a third of the Roman Emperors were killed by their own soldiers.---M.N.R.

    (Part II) DOCTORS ARE NO DOUBT CORRECT in warning us not to touch incurable wounds; and I am presumably taking chances in preaching as I do to a people which has long lost all sensitivity and, no longer conscious of its infirmity, is plainly suffering from mortal illness. Let us therefore understand by logic, if we can, how it happens that this obstinate willingness to submit has become so deeply rooted in a nation that the very love of liberty now seems no longer natural. In the first place, all would agree that, if we led our lives according to the ways intended by nature and the lessons taught by her, we should be intuitively obedient to our parents; later we should adopt reason as our guide and become slaves to nobody. Concerning the obedience given instinctively to one's father and mother, we are in agreement, each one admitting himself to be a model. As to whether reason is born with us or not, that is a question loudly discussed by academicians and treated by all schools of philosophers. For the present I think I do not err in stating that there is in our souls some native seed of reason, which, if nourished by good counsel and training, flowers into

    If you read nothing else for the rest of your life, read this if within you even the least shred of love for freedom exists. Here, in one short discourse, a man of great intellect sets forth that which I have been espousing for the past forty years in a manner that puts my efforts to dust. This treatise leaves me feeling as if my entire philosophical life has amounted to nothing. Boétie expressed his observations with a masterful grace I will never attain, no matter how I may endeavor. Please read this in its entirety, I ask this and nothing more of any of you, save to disseminate the work to all you know, whether open to the ideas or otherwise. There is grand poetry in his style and deeply incisive vision. The double spaces indicate page breaks in the original format from the book, which is available from https://mises.org/library/politics-obedience-discourse-voluntary-servitude THE DISCOURSE OF VOLUNTARY SERVITUDE

    I have no idea what the truth may be. What I do know is that if this accusation is not true, Trump needs to do damage control. If it is, he needs to be defeated in 2020. This nation is so screwed up.

I find it amazing to consider just how hopelessly corrupt a land we are, and have been for so very long a time when I read things like this. To think not only that some people would dare usurp the authority to remove those which are the most obvious prerogatives of free men, but also that we as a people would
