Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

...and the best one for last..

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force.

All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.

By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise.

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.
The broad masses of a population are more amenable to the appeal of rhetoric than to any other force.

The most common trait of all primitive peoples is a reverence for the life-giving earth, and the Native American shared this elemental ethic: The land was alive to his loving touch, and he, its son, was brother to all creatures.”

They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they kept only one; they promised to take our land, and they did.”

o Love is free from bitterness.

o Joy pushes bitterness out.

o Bitterness can not coexist with peace in the soul of the believer filled with the Holy spirit.

o Longsuffering gives the ability to deal with bitterness and other troubles.

o Gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance are fruits of righteousness, which is divine good. Divine good takes the place of bitterness.

I will apologize for not putting words to live by here; however, this is needing to be answered, when members cannot remember something they posted just a few days prior:
quote:
I was recently a victim of bash and dash revenge. The person who hurled insults and then ran off had wounds from some event. Since I don’t remember the event and he does, the mocking words hurled at me last night didn’t open any old wounds for me, but I think for him they did - he greened his wounds by seeking revenge.

quote:

The thread about the 9/12 commissions stopping their use for public services was- again- MY opine) actually had me laughing full value... especially the part where you continued to post on the Blue Pages, yet when you were answered with reasoned, well, thought out responses by more than one, you seemed to never make it back to that thread... and now we have this...

quote:

"The thread about the 9/12 commissions stopping their use for public services"? I have no idea what you're talking about.
(thank you to the individual who pointed this out to me... it was helpful for this thread)
Here is what I was talking about... http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum6/HTML/001951.html
To keep people from having to use up their valuable computer space clicking open multiple windows, I offer the following:
quote:
I, ________________________, do solemnly swear to uphold the principles of a socialism-free society and heretofore pledge my word that I shall strictly adhere to the following:

I pledge to eliminate all government intervention in my life. I will abstain from the use of and participation in any socialist goods and services including but not limited to the following:

This was followed by a list of public services.

Again, I am not posting this here to hijack this thread... it is where I saw it brought up, and decided it was best to answer it here.

To put the thread back onto track:

The important part of Marxism was its demand for active, constant, practical, class-war.
Francis Parker Yockey

It's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Barack Obama

My administration is the only thing between you [CEO's] and the pitchforks.
Barack Obama

This is the moment when we must build on the wealth that open markets have created, and share its benefits more equitably. Trade has been a cornerstone of our growth and global development. But we will not be able to sustain this growth if it favors the few, and not the many.
Barack Obama

What Washington needs is adult supervision.
Barack Obama
Mr, President... you have FINALLY said something that is a bald-faced truth, and something that every American is still waiting for.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, "WHAT A RIDE
