“If you were a U.S. leader, or an official of the National Security State, or a beneficiary of the private military and surveillance industries, why would you possibly want the war on terror to end? That would be the worst thing that could happen. It’s that war that generates limitless power, impenetrable secrecy, an unquestioning citizenry, and massive profit.” (Glenn Greenwald, The “war on terror" by design - can never end, January 4, 2013).
The military industrial complex has grown into the terror industrial complex.
Sept. 16, 2014Contrary to widespread belief, the Islamic State has largely succeeded in winning hearts and minds in the areas it rules by providing services and order.
The average warmonger’s reasons, justifications, and excuses are explosively ridiculous. War criminal “logic” is pathetic. Betray the military mindset matrix and arm yourself with some truth.
*on public roads
It’s completely legally for anyone of any age or mental capacity to buy a car and drive it on private property.
Guns are actually regulated more strictly than cars in most cases. Imagine your drivers license only being good in some states. Imagine if you got caught driving in a state where it wasn’t valid going to prison for 10 years. On top of that imagine if you had to be 21 rather than 16 to get a drivers license and the chief of police in your town could arbitrarily decide that you personally or your town as a whole couldn’t get licenses. Imagine if cars were banned based on their color or other aesthetic features. Imagine that only manual cars were legal for civilians but automatics were legal for law enforcement. Imagine if cars could only legally carry a certain amount of gas in the tank and cars with larger tanks would be illegal because they are deemed “high capacity”. Imagine if you had to get a background check every time you got new car. Imagine if you got one non-violent drug offense as a teen you could never legally own a car for your whole life.
Try to picture all that. Substitute car for firearms and that is the case currently.
I believe it shows a major lack of information on this subject to try(read as fail) to make the argument you are making.
what is so goddamn fascinating about guns?
>A mechanical device which changed the nature of: hunting, sport, self defense, and warfare forever.
>Designed, modified, built and utilized in all countries in the world. With each country adding it’s own cultural variations.
>A tool which puts all humans, regardless of size or strength on an even playing field for self defense. The great equalizer.
>Both immensely complicated and simple designs which a person could spend their whole life studying.
>A device which combines the fields of: Biology, Engineering, Chemistry, History and Anthropology.
…I sincerely don’t comprehend how a human could not find that fascinating.
