Hold up there a second, boss.

Are you ditching Team Blue for anarchy?

Or are you simply trying to virtue signal over Team Red?

Team Red wants to use State force to morally un-decay society (whatever that means) which by extension includes me.

Fact.

Is Team Blue doing anything in the same vein or do its bowel movements smell like roses?

Do you invest in the stock market? If so, would that make you complicit in in coercive actions committed by the companies you invest in?

IMO, it would. That's why we are really careful where our money goes. Years ago, there were some that alleged to be woke companies, but I lost my arse. So now we just do serious research.

The nearest I've seen to pure evil in our society lately is the selected drug companies that pushed excess prescriptions of pain relievers upon ignorant Americans. It would almost seem that marketing is the root of modern evil. Do the marketers suffer from moral decay then? Was there a time when they were good?

Marketing is for one goal and one goal only, to get you to buy "X". You might as well hold schools and parents more responsible for not teaching their children to understand the psychology of people trying to manipulate you.

Name a time in history with no violence, political strife, or crime. It never existed. What's changed is news now makes every headline acts like the end times are here.

Cannot possibly be people with wrong ideas, so let's inquire about them and have a dialogue. The chair of reason is for everyone.

The difference in the left and right.

Evil people physically harm and kill other people. Am I evil, because you think what I say is wrong?

Being overly sensitive and easily offended, is not an excuse for violence. Especially in an armed society.
Is that really what you got from my post?
Or are you being sarcastic?

I didn't accuse anyone of being evil, nor did I advocate killing.

There have been biased news outlets for generations - centuries actually. One of my hobbies is reading old newspapers and they were just as ridiculous with the "news" as our current media is in many ways.
Could be right. Maybe we know more about the bad
moral decay stuff d/t internet access.

I breathed EPA-certified air while typing this. Now you own me.

Congrats statist. What are you going to do with body, mind, and soul (not to mention money)?
