    I don't know the context here, but taken at face value that is the Most naive statement about politics I have ever read.
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Agreed... but

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Can't we just kill everyone and call it a day?
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Your idea of anarchism is probably people throwing bricks at banks because people who do that are labelled as anarchists by the mainstream media. By anarchist, I mean an anarcho-capitalist who respects people's property rights.

    I mentioned that I was against slavery in the gripe thread and everyone started accusing me of pushing my anti-slavery political agenda on everyone.

    True anarchy is the only palatable option to a liberated mind. Those who insist on social insurance against the inherently tenuous and tragic nature of biological life are forever willing to accept slavery to a state in exchange for the illusion of security.

    I am my own state. My truest purpose is to realize that as fully as possible in my time. Difficult, because the trade was made before my birth, and so few accept the futility of insurance.

    And I bet you're just *shocked* by the idea that in an anarchist society, there might not be people who respect the rights of others?

    People were already asking you to shut up even before you pretended that supporting socialised medicine was the equivalent of supporting slavery.

    That made you seem really naive and callow to me. It's as if you have no idea what human suffering and compassion is (in either case).
