Boston Bombs – Where is it Safe?

In Opinion on April 16, 2013 at 11:29 am

Bombs kill 3 and injure dozens in Boston, and, like Pavlov’s dog, the politicians line up in front of the cameras to make statements broadcast by the lapdog media.

Why?  Well, first of all because curiosity and peer pressure (“I must be informed”) induce millions of people to watch, and viewers are money in the bank for the broadcasters.  So that’s why there’s an audience; but, why the parade of politicians?  Why must a crime be transformed into a political event?  Why do the law-makers take over the airwaves, pushing aside law enforcers, assuring everyone that THEY will tell you what THEY will to to make you safe.  We have to suffer Barney Frank (retired tyrant, Massachusetts) tell us on MSNBC that we should be thankful that we have a bigger government than his political opponents want, because only a big government is able to send help in the form of police officers and ambulances.  What a creep.

Wake up people.  They want control.  They want you to fear the unknown and the unknowable and, in turn, entrust them with your very lives.  Then taking more and more of your money will seem like the only right, reasonable thing to do, since, after all, they’ll use that money to make you and your children ‘safer!’

Hogwash.  Laws and politicians can not prevent crime, they can not banish evil from the land and free you from fear.  Laws are enforced, law breakers are punished to deter crime, but laws do not magically cleanse the criminals’ hearts of the tendency to commit acts of terror.  Thicker law books do not convert jihadists and madmen into angels.  We must resist the temptation to outsource our responsibility for protecting ourselves to the bogus security offered up by the brute force of the state.  The level of state action necessary to ‘end’ crime will stifle ALL of life and render your life pointless.

In your community, your family, your friends and neighbors – that’s where safety resides, that’s where you will find comfort and security.  To imagine that Washington, DC, a rapid deployment SWAT team, a bigger, better-armed police force or more intrusive searches, metal detectors and screens can protect you is to invite tyranny into your life.  For the love of life, eschew their offers of comfort and security; it’s most certainly a net, but its end is a prisoner’s life, not safety.  Their version of safety will take the form of boundaries and limits on freedom that are essentially shackles.

Say NO.
