Journal TheVelvetFlamebait's Journal: Imaginary Evils 4

I trust every person with an ounce of sanity is already arming up to defend our country against the blight that is known as Imaginary Property, but I'd like to call attention, for a moment, to a far greater corporate-based evil perpetrating society, brainwashing all the sheeple into believing its ingenious fallacies. I am referring, of course, to money stored digitally in a bank, or as I like to call it, "Imaginary Money"

I mean, it's not like they physically store your money anywhere, they just store some bits on the computer, and those bits could be easily copied for everyone's benefit. It's not any equivalent to real money, because unlike real money, it can be copied. And copying those bits is natural human behaviour. I'm not stealing anything (I SAID IT'S NOT STEALING!!!) because the person off whom I copied these bits isn't losing anything. It's a completely victimless crime.

In fact I would even go so far as to say that the mere fact that so called "bank fraud" is still illegal is IRREFUTABLE proof that the government is corrupt, that it always has been corrupt, and that it always will be corrupt, unless I go on a shooting spree with my AK-47, which I have a constitutional right, nay responsibility to own and use to blow the head off anyone I disagree with.

But first, I think I might stop by a few banks on the way...

  • Got to your journal from your sig--this is a response to the idea of scaled fines. I believe one of the scandinavian countries, wherever Nokia is based, does this. I remember a news story about the president of Nokia receiving a speeding/traffic ticket for some $200,000 b/c of his unusually large income! You might research out their laws to see how they tackled some of the issues that you mentioned with the idea. Another story you might be interested in: Pfizer was recently fined XXX million dollars for

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
