"Economic equality is the master key to nonviolent independence. Working for economic equality means abolishing the eternal conflict between capital and labour. It means the leveling down of the few rich in whose hands is concentrated the bulk of the nation's wealth on the one hand, and the leveling up of the semi-starved naked millions on the other.

A nonviolent system of government is clearly an impossibility, so long as the wide gulf between the rich and the hungry millions persists. The contrast between the palaces of New Delhi and the miserable hovels of the poor, labouring class nearby cannot last one day in a free India in which the poor will enjoy the same power as the richest in the land.
A violent and bloody revolution is a certainty one day unless there is a voluntary abdication of riches and the power that riches give and sharing them for the common good."

Plenty more here

So if the government spends our tax money on us it's a plot to enslave us?

I didn't read the whole thing because I am developing an allergy to derp.

But as Eric Hoffer once observed, "we are least open to precise knowledge concerning the things we are most vehement about."
In fact, the Obama administration's long term strategy is to create a permanent class of federally dependent citizens tipping over 50 percent in order to suffocate the very atmosphere that gives life to intellectual and political diversity in America.

If you project any harder your ass is going to start bleeding.

This was created by trickle down economics farktard. The Liberal agenda is to close the income gap by providing assistance so people can become self sufficient. The conservative agenda is to widen the gap and tell the middle and lower income individuals that it is their fault.

Calling it a fact does not make it so. Believing it does explains the low threshold of thought required by Birfers and people who read these conservative tabloids.

Jackson Herring: farking priceless:.


They've given up even the pretense of rationally constructed arguments. A single wave of a masculine and affirmative "in fact" wand and liberal biases masquerading as facts and logic are expected to run cowering.

That's a great link.

From the article: "the long and painful process of individual self-mastery and character development could only flourish in an authoritarian-free environment."

Smells like global warming fearmongering. I expected better of you, American Thinker.

Now I can only trust American Thinkerer (twice as thinky as the original).

The guy in the next cube believes this and I have to admit, I am having a difficult time refuting him. Mostly because anytime I try all that will come out of my mouth is "are you really stupid enough to believe that?"

It's impossible to reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves in to.

No it is just an over abundance of mouth breathers inside the conservative bubble.

Indeed it was priceless. I stopped reading right after that moment, I knew it wouldn't get any better than that.

If he's truly insistent on not depending on the federal government, he should give you all those federally-backed green pieces of paper out of his wallet.

No, they're different. Romney believes in magic underpants. Gandhi wore nothing *but* underpants.

Yeah he refuses to aceept that morally the mortgage interest deduction and depenant deductions he takes are equivilant to welfare.

Gandhi was a Nazi loving closeted homosexual who horribly mistreated those closest to him.

Apt comparison?

The incoherence of the right grows exponentially as the reality of what is going to happen in November gets harder for them to ignore. They are incapable of attacking their enemies without farcically lampooning themselves.

This.

Setting aside that tough guys in the GOP are not poster boys for nonviolence.

Didn't Ghandhi pretty much advocate an economic system built up by cottage industries? I don't think he was big on large corporations

Old and busted: Barack Obama is just like Mahatma Gandhi--a brown man who hates British colonialism, therefore you should not vote for him.

New hotness: Mitt Romney is just like Mahatma Gandhi, therefore you should vote for him.
 
2012-09-28 01:51:43 PM  
Well I remember the times that Gandhi said that 47% of all Indians would never take responsibility for themselves, and therefore he didn't care about them.
 
2012-09-28 02:00:52 PM  
If Ghandi had not been cremated he would be spinning so fast in his grave the Indian goverment could use him to generate electricity.

Last week several liberal farkers insisted that by sending money to middle eastern nations we were making them poor.

He's more like Joseph Smith. He pretends to have a magic plan sent down by God that only he has access to, but you need to take his word for it because it's the most important thing in the world. Upon the slightest investigation, it's clearly a poorly done rip-off of someone else's story. Then the story keeps changing but we're still supposed to take it seriously.
