Laugh at the State

Destroy the ill-presumed legitimacy of Big Bother with a good laugh at their expense.

China gets it. The students at one of U.S. Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner’s recent gigs did something I personally found amazing. They laughed at the farcical secretary and his goofy financial schemes during one of his long-winded tirades. He mistakenly took the kids for a bunch of rubes, looking down his nose at them with the usual contempt in the typical fashion of any vile government employed tyrant.

No violence in that hall, no call for threats against those who dare to absurdly think themselves our betters. Nope, none of that. It would only give them more power over us and our lives with heaps of new onerous laws and a sick further expansion of the police state.

Instead laugh at them, let these foolish jesters for a foul and bankrupt system, know just what a joke they are. They can’t fight back against such a thing. Face it- the use of ridicule against the state’s apparatus is very powerful in the advance of liberty.

Because if students in a faraway, not to mention politically oppressed land can do it, then you can too.

In Nashua, New Hampshire, they are holding regular protests against the absurd marijuana laws in that state. Some “undercover police” attempted to spy on the revelers from a block away with a dose of megaphone delivered ridicule for their stupid efforts at wasting the taxpayer’s stolen cash, for their efforts.

Show up at their so-called “Town Hall Meetings”, drop in on a political rally or ten for some jerk that can’t hack it in the private sector creating any good or service people can use, yet absurdly feels he can give us everything we want (supposedly only by him) for “free”. Laugh at them and see just how good you (and how bad they) feel afterwards.

Do it while it is still legal to do so.
