It's also stupid to assume that the government is always wrong and that if you're against it, you're automatically right.

The government is wrong most of the time though. Plus they serve us, so if they do something even if we don't like or want it, then they are automatically wrong.

Doing things that you don't see the point of or that you don't agree with doesn't mean they're wrong.

I prefer a government that serves the good of the people, not the whims of the people, even if that good is beyond the people's knowledge and desire.

Yes, because right and wrong are so black and white. I'm not trying to say the Government is always right, but it would seem that this post implies that anyone who disagrees with the government is.

Grow up. Just because you think you know how everything should be doesn't make you right.

If you read the rest of my comments you'd know that I don't. I try to keep an open mind. That's all I can really do. No one knows everything. No one can possibly know everything.

I make judgments, same as everyone, but I try not to be hard headed and narrow minded about them. Which all leads back to what is right and wrong. No one can say for sure so saying "I'm right, the government is wrong, end of story." is just as closed minded as saying "the government is perfect never question them".
User avatar #57 to #52 - useroftheLOLZ (07/25/2013) [-]
The message is that when you know the government is doing wrong, it is dangerous to do what you believe is right, because your right is the government's wrong, and they will do everything in their power to stop you, it's a hell of a lot deeper than you make it out to be.
User avatar #59 to #57 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
I know what it's trying to say, I'm just pointing out how it comes across, and how a lot of people probably like to think means they're right.

I know a corrupt government is bad. Does anyone think it's a good thing?
User avatar #63 to #59 - useroftheLOLZ (07/25/2013) [-]
I was merely bugged by that fact that you were telling people to "Grow up..." because as you put it "Just because you think you know how everything should be doesn't make you right."

I like to believe that age doesn't matter when differentiating right from wrong, the child knows pain is wrong, and mother and father are right, the teenager knows that loneliness, and the inability to express ones self is wrong, and knows that comradely, and the ability to be creative is right, the Adult knows that oppression and murder is wrong, and freedom is right, the elderly know that right and wrong are never so clear cut, but realize that there are some things that are inherently good, and inherently bad.

telling someone that they can't differentiate Right, Wrong, Black, White, and all the shades of gray, is to deny the fact that their opinion matters, which in and of it's self is wrong, when the Government is an embodiment of the people.

People can naturally realize that their Government is corrupt, and when they try to oppose the things that the Government does, that they don't agree with, the Government can and does retaliate in the most efficient, and brutal way possible, to make an example of the minority, a way of securing their dominance over their opposition, and rally support from their followers. Its politics 101
User avatar #69 to #63 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
Right. The "Grow up." is less literal. I don't mean "Young people don't know how the world is" or something like that. It was more that some people act like children in refusing to see other possibilities.

The whole "My opinion is different than yours therefore I am right and you are wrong." is a very childish thing. That isn't to say I'm not guilty of it as well, as it is a natural instinct to assure yourself that you are right. Human beings are excellent at rationalizing. So much so, that it is a point of growth to be able to see when you are being close minded. Recently I've noticed more when I start to do it, and I try to stop (for example with the Zimmerman thing I've only recently come to knock myself out of my fixed view on the situation, and admit that Zimmerman might have acted within the law).

That's what I mean by grow up. Not that they are literally children, but that they are acting that way in thinking so closed minded. I don't mean to deny anyone's opinion, rather quite the opposite. I just want people to look at both sides of the coin, so to speak.
User avatar #128 to #69 - timmywankenobi (07/25/2013) [-]
but the government side of the coin just says " **** you we're taking huge chunks of your tax money for ourselves and our friends "
User avatar #147 to #128 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
Sometimes, it is that way, yes. But, not all politicians are corrupt. Thinking that is close minded. You just generalized all politicians. That's not really looking at both sides of the coin.
User avatar #153 to #147 - timmywankenobi (07/25/2013) [-]
I know not all of them are corrupt but a bunch of them are and they seriously **** **** up, and they never face any punishment.
User avatar #157 to #153 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
Yeah, I get it. Your cynicism is warranted, of that there is no doubt. I'm just trying to make a point about not getting stuck in the rut of one viewpoint, and that one only.
User avatar #160 to #157 - timmywankenobi (07/25/2013) [-]
of course one must have a open mind .
User avatar #96 to #59 - nucularwar (07/25/2013) [-]
The government probably thinks it's a good thing. The people in power anyways. But I'm just nitpicking.
User avatar #98 to #96 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
True I suppose. No one ever thinks they're the bad guy. Everything is always "for the greater good". Who knows, maybe they're right, maybe they're not. One thing is for sure though, and that is that right and wrong are so clear cut. No one does bad things thinking they are doing bad things. That would be idiotic.
User avatar #99 to #98 - nucularwar (07/25/2013) [-]
I don't know about that, that's like when you do something and feel guilty about it as you're doing it. You know you shouldn't but do anyways.

I agree that right and wrong aren't clear cut. I don't think anything is LESS clear cut than right and wrong, good and evil.
User avatar #106 to #99 - retardedboss (07/25/2013) [-]
But when you do things you know you shouldn't, it is idiotic. I'm not saying I haven't done things I know I shouldn't have. I have. Do you're right in that sometimes you do the wrong thing and don't think you are in the right, but I was also right in saying that doing so is idiotic. Because it is. People are idiots. Myself included.

Why do people hate cops so much? They literally are just doing their job and protecting citizens. There are some scumbag people out there who turn into cops that make the force look bad. My friend always bitches, "			****		 the police, I got two speeding tickets last week." She was doing 80 in a 55, twice. They're out there to protect and serve. There are some scumbag people out there who turn into cops that make the force look bad, 			****		 those police.

yeah and I think the SS was just doing there job as well...

Well the SS weren't police. Gestapo were the police of the Nazi's.
#116 to #111 - artless (07/25/2013) [-]
No the police were the police of the nazis, Gestapo was more like the CIA "Geheime Staats Polizei", the SS was was neither police nor miliary, but thats not the point anyway. The point is the obscure answer "They are just doing there job" as you could dont have any responisbility for your action if you are at work.
User avatar #125 to #116 - scotlandhome (07/25/2013) [-]
Then why did you word-for-word say, " yeah and I think the SS was just doing there job as well..." ya'know in terrible English and what not.

well the cops who just do their jobs killed 5 people in the last two months in my country, because they didn't care about the usage manuel of their weapons, or they used lethal force when they were not autorized or obliged to. thousands of people were injured. almost 20 people lost their eyes because of rubber bullets. all they did was participating in the protests that go around all around the country. and they didn't pose any thread to anyone, except the injustice.

i agree, some retards act like they own the police and bitch when they get beat. but sometimes, its the police who are the assholes.

People are stupid. It's a simple as this: "I don't like not doing whatever I want! **** the people at the very end of the justice system chain that enforce laws!" They don't think about how horrible the world would be without cops. Sadly, most people never get out of the middle school mind set.

No, it's because people (government or not) are ******* stupid, irrational, easily scared.
What if the citizens mistrust other citizens with guns? Because some of them are Timothy McVeigh's, Branch Davidians. Some of them are Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, some of them are Seung-Hui Cho and Adam Lanza.

Jelly because you didn't defend your rights and lost them?
User avatar #140 to #137 - Fagdust (07/25/2013) [-]
I think the majority of Americans understand the value of life and liberty and would be trusted with the possession and operation of a gun. The citizens should hold the power of America, not the government. Just because one is a police officer, or a soldier, or a government employee does not mean they are more trustworthy with a weapon. All Americans have the right to bear arms to defend themselves of any enemy foreign or domestic.
User avatar #142 to #140 - ThaLuckyWilly (07/25/2013) [-]
I agree with that but I believe citizens should be allowed a handgun for personal/home defense and several hunting rifles if they do in fact hunt. The need to own several high caliber assault rifles just doesn't make sense to me.
#169 to #142 - pebar (07/25/2013) [-]
most hand guns are a higher caliber than most rifles
it's the velocity that makes a difference

Also, the term "assault rifle" only refers to select fire (capable of full auto/burst fire) rifle. What a lot of people have are only semiautomatic weapons which means you have to pull the trigger one time to make one bullet come out. If you want to make a lot of bullets come out then you have to pull the trigger lots of times. But these types of rifles are not "assault rifles."

Also, pic related. Just like how there are checks and balances between the branches of government to stop one branch from gaining too much power. The civilian militia (2nd amendment) was originally meant to be a replacement to the standing army since the military would be the right hand of an abusive government (it was a very big concern at the time, and for good reason). But very early on, the founding fathers realized that they were going to need a real trained army. So the 2nd amendment evolved into a check against the people's own government.

"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."
--Thomas Paine
User avatar #163 to #142 - whiskeygunner (07/25/2013) [-]
What does the caliber matter? Dead is dead. If I shoot you with my .223, you are going to die. If I shoot you with my .300 winchester magnum, you are going to die a lot quicker. Take your pick.
#146 to #142 - Fagdust (07/25/2013) [-]
I did say all enemies foreign and domestic. Domestic implies any enemy on the homeland that is a threat to the American public. Whether it be a common criminal or a corrupt government. Gun restriction is also inherently flawed. If a law abiding citizen will obey the law and give up the use of automatic weapons, that is not preventing further crimes with automatic weapons. Criminals will continue to commit crimes despite whatever law they put up, they have been doing it for thousands of years. If anything, gun control laws are taking power away from good citizens and not impeding the real criminal threat.
User avatar #164 to #142 - pebar (07/25/2013) [-]
it would be more constitutional but still unconstitutional to ban handguns and leave semi-automatic rifles legal
#239 to #164 - anon (07/25/2013) [-]
Exactly, more people are killed by handguns than "assault rifles" as the media likes to call them but handguns arent all big and scary looking so they arent priority apparently
User avatar #162 to #142 - roliga (07/25/2013) [-]
Assault rifles have been banned since 1986 and the semi-automatic rifles you mean are NOT high caliber... Majority of rifles used to hunt are much much much larger than most semi-automatic rifles. And even then you can use an AR-15 to hunt if you feel like it.

I wouldn't trust half you ******* with a potato peeler...
User avatar #225 to #175 - reconred (07/25/2013) [-]
Then I will be sure not to use my 2nd Amendment right to defend your life.
User avatar #231 to #225 - lolollo (07/25/2013) [-]
Well then it's a good thing I can exercise my own 2nd amendment rights to defend my own life.

Because all I said was that I wouldn't trust half of you ******* with a potato peeler, not that the 2nd amendment shouldn't exist.

Seriously, get the sand out of your panties.
