"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

The Mole People (Credit: Charlie Pierce)

In the old days, fire protection was provided on a contract basis.  You paid for the protection, you got the fire at your house put out.

So I guess we should go back to that, because I don't want to pay for fire protection on your house, I only want it on my house.  Police protection, too; why should I pay the police to protect you, especially if I never need the police to protect me?  And what's with these public roads? I want my own roads, and get all these other idiots off and out of my way!  Let 'em build their own roads!  I don't want to provide for their transportation!

Honestly, what is wrong with these people?

I don't want to have to provide the commerce department, the various banks, the myriad of corporate welfare provisions, etc. etc. etc. etc. I don't want to have to provide Trump with Secret Service protection, it's not my fault he requires security, let him pay for it.
