    Ah, yes, the 96th Thesis... I see the Pope also responded: Arise, O Lord, and judge your own cause. Remember your reproaches to those who are filled with foolishness all through the day. Listen to our prayers, for foxes have arisen seeking to destroy the vineyard whose winepress you alone have trod. When you were about to ascend to your Father, you committed the care, rule, and administration of the vineyard, an image of the triumphant church, to Peter, as the head and your vicar and his successors. The wild Nicki Minaj from the forest seeks to destroy it and every wild beast feeds upon it... Exsurge Domine (Condemning the Errors of Nicki Minaj) Bull of Pope Leo X issued June 15, 1520

    Yeah, when I'm stopped, I state each thing I'm about to do out loud before I do it. In the worst-case scenario, at least there is an audio record of what I was doing when I was gunned down without cause. It's sad that we have to calculate this kind of stuff when interacting with people we are told are absolutely trustworthy, beyond any possibility of wrongdoing or reproach, basically sun-bathed angels descended from heaven itself ... oh, and pay no attention to the Gatling guns mounted atop the MRAP that pulled you over, those are only for "the bad guys"... (and nevermind that police training explicitly defines all traffic stop interactions as fundamentally hostile and all drivers as presumed perps...) That bag is absurd and it is a reflection of the deep mental-illness that has infused all or nearly all police doctrine in the US. Being gung-ho is OK (within limits). Being male is OK. Being ready to stop crooks is OK (but not at any cost!) What is not OK is converting every interaction with the public into a Fistful-of-Dollars gunfight, or the mental equivalent of that. I have been lucky in my traffic stops so far, but I know that if I draw the wrong card and get one of the troublemakers that is only looking for a good excuse for a beatdown, I'm just one traffic-stop away from the beatdown of my life, and being charged on top of it. And that realization is precisely why the police agencies harbor these rabid dogs, and why the Federally-sponsored up-armoring of US police across the board has created conditions that encourage agencies to keep and maintain junkyard dogs on the force. Everybody knows what could happen during a simple traffic stop, or any encounter with the police. And that makes us filled with anxiety and dread, which is precisely the outcome it is intended to produce. So relax, have a nice day and enjoy your Amerikan freedumbs!!

    I just meant that I think Nicki is quite aware of the political dynamics, and she is smart enough to be able to use her "dumb hip-hop star" typecast to her own advantage, against her critics. Conservatives hate on anything that isn't squared away in a business suit on purely aesthetic grounds, but there is a certain kind of brutal honesty in people like Nicki Minaj. So it's hilarious when the right-wing Establishment suddenly discovers an ally in someone whose persona in every other respect is the diametric opposite of everything they stand for. Meanwhile, the D's are going after her like she's one of their chained pets and she has to snap-to on their command. That just isn't going to work. Meanwhile, I'm just laughing... I was bumping Minaj beats long before she became conservative-cool...

    I'm not very keen on the political tit-for-tat calculus (it is a road that leads straight to hell)... but the D's absolutely made the bed they are now sleeping in, with four years of non-stop Autonomous Zone / Antifa / BLM political-vomit all over the United States, literally hurling feces while pitching history's biggest toddler temper-tantrum after Hillary lost in 2016. I don't appreciate my hometown (Portland) being reduced to a national spectacle for the political purposes of the Democrat party. I know there is blame to go around on both sides, and you won't hear me saying any good words about the street-brawling PB's and the "Patriot" Prayer snitch-brigade that were facing off with the rioters. This looks more and more like a case of "made for each other"... by the look of things, it appears the US political parties are spinning off into a never-ending call-and-response "F*** YOU", "NO, F*** YOU!", "NO, F***! YOU!" for ever and ever... :rolleyes:

    Walter Block is the libertarian little-girl-with-the-curl-on-her-forehead -- when he's right, he's very right, and when he's wrong... it's horrid. There is no presumption of safety (medical or otherwise) in the public space, which is an unstated assumption in Block's argument. Neither Block nor anyone else has any "private property claim" to safety in the public space. Block's argument 100% applies to his own land, and other properties. Typhoid Mary may be stopped at his property line, by force if necessary. She may be forcibly stopped from entering his vehicle or approaching unduly close to his person. He may ask his employer to eject her from the grounds if she were to harass him by following him into his place of employment. These are the remedies that are available to Block or anyone else if they do not want to be approached by infected people (or anyone else, for that matter). However, no one has any additional private property claim to medical safety or any other kind of safety in the public space. In Mad Max anarcho-capitalism (I'm not necessarily using this as a pejorative), if you venture into the hinterlands unarmed and turn up dead, the only person to blame for your death is your own fool self. You knew better than to go wandering around unarmed. Of course, if the bandits somehow happened to turn up in custody and confess, they would still be legally liable for their crime. But as a practical matter, we know that is extremely unlikely to happen. So, the public space can be thought of as the ultimate buyer-beware space. That applies equally to unvaccinated people and medical-safety. If you really are that scared of the doomsday virus, then the onus is on you to purchase and use a self-contained, biohazard suit. By shelling out the cash, you can equip your home with ultra-filtration to filter out particles down to a few parts-per-million or less. What you don't have a right to do is force everybody else in society to subsidize your paranoid hypochondria. It should be clear that the primary value of the doomsday virus, for the purposes of the Deep State, is how it puts those who believe in private property rights and the free exchange of goods and services, on their back foot. Even if the doomsday virus did undergo a purely natural gain-of-function from animals to humans, the entire narrative surrounding it is all about this imaginary right that paranoid hypochondriac individuals supposedly have to force the rest of society (through the apparatus of the State) to subsidize the relief of their anxieties. I'm not inherently opposed to getting a vaccination but I don't owe you to be vaccinated because I could get infected, and then infect you. If you are that worried about it, retire to your fortress of solitude, build a hermetically-sealed living space and live the rest of your days in a lab-isolated bubble away from all human contact.

    Modern policymaking imagines men like marbles running down an inclined plane and it imagines government policy as obstructions or races erected on that plane that will effectively move men -- like passive marbles under the influence of gravity -- left or right. The power of this illusion consists in the fact that, for the bulk of the public, it is basically true. Most people will choose the lowest-tax retirement investment vehicle. Most people will avoid the parking ticket. And so on. So the carrot and the stick of policy are, indeed, effective in the vast majority of instances. But the significance of the minority of "law-breakers" is mistakenly assumed to be only as large as their proportion. If just 0.01% of citizens break a given a law, then this law is clearly "effective" and the law-breakers "pay" for their "crimes", the punishments having been adjusted so that it would have been better for them to have just followed the law to begin with. But this is not how things work in actuality -- When punishments for street drug-dealers were drastically increased, many dealers began soliciting the assistance of minors to complete the last step of the deal so that, if it turned out they were selling to the police, it would be a minor arrested and he would be able to cop out on "juvenile first offense", while the dealer himself would skip town and hopefully avoid a warrant. This is just one example out of countless examples that can be mentioned to demonstrate the point that it is not within the power of the State to reconfigure the flow of marbles across the plane howsoever it wishes, no matter how supremely blissful the carrots it offers, nor how abjectly terrifying the stick it wields. Instead, the State, like all of us, is subject to the dictum "Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed", where "nature" here refers to human nature.
