People have slightly missed the point, I think. I have intimated this in the comments to various posts, but I now have to come out and say that I am not being funny. This blog is my catharsis and that is why I swear so much (and, as a result, I'm much calmer in real life).
Having said that, of course, if I were actually trying to incite people to punch Emily Thornberry in the cunt and throw her into the sea, then perhaps disquiet would be appropriate.
But as must be obvious to any regular reader of The Kitchen, these are more in the nature of fantasies than actual suggested actions—after all, I'm sure that no one seriously thinks that I or the poor little Greek boy really suggest doing these things to Patsy Hewitt.
Whilst I do believe that the initiation of force or fraud against someone's life, liberty or property is not to be tolerated, that doesn't prevent me from suggesting fantastical ends for those who attack us.
After all, these people initiate force against our liberty every single day; whilst few of us Westerners die because of their policies, millions in the Developing World do. These people are idiots, fools, knaves and, to put it bluntly, murderers.
Our politicos pursue policies that harm millions—and they do so in the face of both evidence and theory. These policies have unintended—but easily foreseen—consequences that harm real people.
So, why do they pursue these policies?
- They know no better. Well, they employ enough researchers (at our expense): they should know better. So, they either ignore research (in which case why are we paying for their researchers?) or they cannot be bothered to reconcile their fucking stupid dogma with the research (in which case, they are purest evil).
- They do know better. In which case, they pursue stupid, evil policies despite knowing that they will destroy and cripple people. If this is the case, our politicians represent the purest evil on Earth and nothing is too bad for them.
These are the only two options. Either way, they are stupid, evil people. And stupid, evil people deserve the very worst of punishments. And even if these punishments should not be carried out, seriously, then... well, a Devil can dream, can't he?
Especially given what these odious turds continue to do to us in their continued attacks on our liberty and our property (even if they do not overtly attack our lives).
Seriously, this is a war: this is a war between those who think that the individual is sovereign and those who think that they should be sovereign over the individual.
And we are losing.
