“The sovereign citizen lunatic cult in white society” is what Sam Harris calls someone who has the same standards for the police they would have for anyone else.
You know what sounds like a cult?
A person (President/Congress) who claims the right to issue executive orders or laws that must be obeyed and those who disobey will be jailed.
A group that forces you to fund them regardless of whether or not you value their services (government taxation).
An organization which compels children to be indoctrinated in its schools for 12 years (government truancy laws).
Being heavily pressured to thank employees of a group “for their service” even if that “service” involves murdering innocent people overseas.
Government regulation can be summed up as, “obey these arbitrary and often contradictory commands which hurt consumers and create oligopolies or else we’ll put you in a jail cell and shoot you if you resist us.”
Is this the skeptical, rational atheist I always keep hearing about?
If citizens can’t justifiably cage people for victimless crimes, and government/cops get their rights from the citizens, how can cops justly jail someone for a victimless crime?
How can “we the people” in a democracy, delegate rights we don’t have?
I hereby invite Mr. Harris onto the Libertarian Institute podcast anytime to discuss this matter further.
P.S. On episode #87 of The Waking Up Podcast at the 1:16:40 mark Harris mentions the 17 Agencies Hoax. Harris and other conspiracy theorists still believe that Russia installed Trump as President despite it being debunked numerous times.
A White House Memo article on Monday about President Trump’s deflections and denials about Russia referred incorrectly to the source of an intelligence assessment that said Russia orchestrated hacking attacks during last year’s presidential election. The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies — the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. The assessment was not approved by all 17 organizations in the American intelligence community.
