Journal spun's Journal: Changing my sig 1

After nearly a decade with the same sig, I've decided to get rid of the Python quote and replace it with something even more combative. I saw it in an Empire: Total War loading screen, heh heh.

"None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom, but license." --John Milton.

Liberty is a social contract, it requires active participation to achieve it. License is "I get to do what I want."

  • Hell, yeah. Liberty is empowerment, nominally due to collaborating with common interests to exercise power in socially productive ways. While I appreciate the not-at-the-point-of-a-gun ethos, I'll stop pissing on self-described Libertarians when they focus on coming up with effective and pragmatic methods of achieving the aims of government programs, rather than using their ideology as a crutch to blind themselves to their roles in harmful, hateful systems of disproportionate reward.
