The Idiocracy gets worse

I don't know how many times I've said this, but I think government will keep getting worse before it goes away.

And, even though I'm pessimistic about the near future, I do think in the long term, government-- political government-- will go away. I just hope it isn't replaced with something worse or even more stupid.

Which, as long as stupid and/or evil people have power, is a real risk.

At the moment, there's a real frenzy to shut down and imprison political opponents, or those who are otherwise a threat to the narrative. Some of these people are bad people, too. But, the attempts to get them all rounded up before... what?... seems to be accelerating. I think this will erode public acceptance of the Ancestral Enemy at least a little. As long as people they like are being rounded up, anyway.

Although they will continue to make things hard on the rest of us for the foreseeable future. those dumb enough to keep clinging to government are too dumb to survive into the indefinite future. 

If they're dumb enough to keep believing in government, they're dumb enough to check to see if the gun is loaded by looking down the barrel with a finger on the trigger. They're dumb enough to cross the road without checking for oncoming cars. They're dumb enough to do lots of things that will increase their odds of an early demise. Like supporting government despite thousands of years of evidence against it.

Since these people usually survive long enough, despite doing really dumb things, they don't see the connection. But it's there. As in Idiocracy, they also breed fast enough to replenish their numbers. So far.

This is why we can't have nice things, like liberty.

Thank you for reading.
