Title: Survival Blog has hit a new low

This is a post by someone who recommends rewriting the constitution to create Sharia-like law in the U.S., severely curtailing the rights of women and making the clergy supreme, but from a fundamentalist Christian perspective.  Very much an anti-freedom manifesto.

The only bright spot is most of the commenters were opposed to it.

I tried to leave this reply to the author's second-to-last comment, but the "management" there didn't post it.


You just don't get it, do you?  You are unfit to be writing any kind of constitution.  You are ignorant of history and of human nature, and have no respect for the rights of others.  Your thinking (using that term loosely) is wrong, evil, anti-freedom, and un-American.  You are more dangerous to American liberty than any communist ever was.

I would hope any lawyer you talk to would say, the current year is 2017, not 1017, and your ideas, on enslaving 50% of the population, limiting free speech, and making the clergy the supreme rulers, are legally and morally repugnant.

It's not a matter of rewriting this.  Your fundamental premises are wrong.  What you are proposing is what should not be done.  Period.

It's like the lines in the Beatles song "Revolution:"
You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head

Yes, you are entitled to your beliefs, no matter how wrong and wacko.  But the minute you try to impose your worldview on others, by force, is when you should be put in a prison cell.


The last comment there is a lengthy one by the author, in which he backpedals a bit and tries to explain his reasoning.  He misses the days when there were stay-at-home moms, he hates hearing the F-word everywhere, etc.  Sadly, I guess this guy is for real.  I thought he might be an agent provocateur or maybe just a wag, taking the sometimes ultra-religious posts on SB to their logical extreme.

First, I totally agree with Felinenation.

"Yes, you are entitled to your beliefs, no matter how wrong and wacko.  But the minute you try to impose your worldview on others, by force, is when you should be put in a prison cell."

The key words here are "impose, by force".

In a "libertarian" world, he should certainly be allowed to live his fantasy, on his OWN property, with those who VOLUNTARILY wish to join him. There will be some. Not my thing but hey, "Your place, your rules". Now, don't try that at my place or I'll sick one of my Granddaughters on you.

For some reason, they seem to have accepted my comment.

"It always seems that tyranny follows a failed state. As Spooner said, either the Constitution failed us or we failed it. Regardless, I suggest a libertarian replacement, rather than a statist one.

THE SUPREME LAW OF THIS COMMUNITY/NATION IS
 THE NON AGGRESSION PRINCIPLE
“No one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate “physical” aggression against another, nor to delegate or authorize its use.”

In accordance:
 Each person has the individual right to self defense and the defense of their property.

Each individual person owns their own body and no other.

Private property represents our investment.

No one has more “rights” than any other.

(You don’t have to agree with them, just don’t violate them. You have been warned!)

If you insist on a State or a King, I suggest reading, 1st Samuel, 8.

Peace, Love & Brotherhood,
 Through Equal Rights, Equal Firepower and Civility.
