Wow.

@mrcivlib I've not argued for state using force on its own citizens

I generally find, when sparring with Sunny, that he speaks a different language.

Statists don't like the curtain being pulled back on the State. Once it becomes clear the state is an institution of coercive force, any moral argument for their welfare state, or indeed any sort of policy, falls flat.

Good grief.

Orwellian definition of "force" here. No doubt an anti-smoker will be along to point out that "we're not forcing anyone not to smoke; we are simply offering them the choice to become smoke free". Modern government never forces anyone to do anything, it merely offers a choice between freedom and prosecution.

Ah, you have failed to recognise that the Righteous know what is good for you, and that does not constitute "force".

Prehaps the most scary thing about the modern day left is the total lack of any self awareness. This man actually believes what he says.

Why are they never honest about what they believe in?
