Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

Quote of the Day - Sounds Plausible Edition

A comment to the Market-Ticker column, Fox Gets It Right (!) On Guns:
Sorry to sound tinny, but I'm pretty convinced that this sudden, intense push for gun control is directly related to the fiscal issues facing this Nation. They don't want an armed citizenry when the SHTF. This may be government recognition that we have passed the event horizon. - Mdm
And to add to the tinfoil, it also helps explain the massive quantities of ammo purchased by various Federal departments recently. Go read the original piece and all the other comments to it. Some are really excellent.

But that wasn't the QotD.  This is, from a comment at Rachel's:
Attestations by liberals and leftists of what it is they desire bear no resemblance to what they're after.

Obamacare has nothing to do with health; cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming; anti-gun laws have nothing to do with saving lives; free schooling has nothing to do with education; universal suffrage has nothing to do with governance.

What is it they're after? What all –isms are after – acceptance, compliance, concession, cooperation, and submission; Utopia.

Utopia: if it saves but one life it's worth the death of millions. -- George Pal
