Fighting the State

by James E. Miller, Mises:

It’s is unfathomable how much brain power goes into hatching schemes to “reform” societal governance. From increased taxation to prying apart the grip of the monopoly state, the breadth of the political spectrum spends a great deal of time arguing over the correct course of action.

    Kerfuffle? Isn’t that a lefto-communist term for a “gigantic f***-up”? Gotta watch all these cute little code and buzz words that come along. Those who would win every argument regardless of their merits often begin by controlling or attempting to control the flow of the language. This has led to all manner of abuse, such as whether or not something is “PC”. When one defines the language, it then becomes possible to also define argumentative victory. None of these half-witted tricks will work on those who are awake and aware.
