This is a state employee engaging in political speech. Perhaps academics should be afforded some leeway in being allowed to do so in an official capacity. But there's no reason to grant any type of shield against scrutiny by those who pay their salaries, the taxpayers. We are absolutely fed up with government workers lying to and manipulating us, with our own money, on behalf of their own hidden agendas. No exceptions.
I don't see evidence of this in my life at all, state employees do everything for you constantly to keep your quality of life as high as possible, where would you get your water and what would you be doing with your excrement without them, would you wallow in and consume as you seem to now? I like Firefighters, cops, soldiers, and teachers a whole lot. You apparently think they are all "lying to and manipulating" you "with your[sic] own money, on behalf of hidden agendas". What hidden agendas? Putting out fires? Enforcing the laws of the state? Teaching people how to write? Are those the agendas? If that is what you do not want from society, you are simply an anarchists, and have nothing constructive to say about government. What about the people who clean up the garbage you have thrown on the ground? What about social workers? Have you ever been helped by someone? Did you teach yourself to read and write? Do you put out your own fires? Are you driving around dangerous neighborhoods to keep the innocent people that live there safe? Are you feeding someone before they start knocking on your door to beg for food? Is the world about being fair? Do you deserve everything you have in life? Are you more deserving than those who work much harder than you and have less anyway? Do you really think society could in any way function without public employees and the services they provide? And lastly, do you realize that public employees pay just as much taxes as you do, and trying to differentiate them in that manner makes absolutely no logical sense whatsoever? If not, try just shutting the fuck up about them being paid by your tax money as a reason they must obey your personal will, because you sound pathetically naive and foolish beyond measure. Most people aren't that stupid, so it isn't convincing anyone but other fools of anything about the reality of life. I hear arguments like this among the 4th graders I work with, if that puts your developmental level in context (if you are a third grader, congrats) It's literally the stupidest fucking argument in history, it logically defeats itself in so many ways.
