They got a name for that when you're poor and not famous - it's called PSYCHOSIS
So apparently (nobody is more surprised than I am) it would appear according to standardised testing that I passed more brain cells in my last bowel movement than Richard Dawkins has in his entire head.
I am not one of these guys. I'm not going to lie to you and pretend I was ever impressed by Plato's THE REPUBLIC. I read it when I was ten years old and I thought it was pretentious crap as soon as I closed the back cover. I could see Plato was a high strung narcissist pretending to be bright, just like Richard Dawkins. Nobody told me Plato was an idiot. I knew it instinctively. I was never Plato. I never thought the fact I could run intellectual circles around nearly everyone meant that I should be the god-king. I was smart enough to know just how many people die at the hands of those kinds of fools. In fact, by the age of 12 you could not have made me the god-king of Plato's books. I would flee if you attempted to force it on me. It's a bad business all this central management and collectivization of resources and labor. Anybody who pretends they can do that job is a liar.
My conclusion after a half a century on this vale of tears is that nobody should ever be compelled to do anything except respect the right of others to never be compelled. It's a bad idea in terms of governance. I know enough about the way the world works to know that nobody is better equipped to decide what is best for a person than the person themselves. It's a sick queer dream of intellectuals worldwide to ascend the throne and implement their creepy central engineering policies, ignoring centuries of evidence to the contrary. Richard Dawkins isn't smart enough to shine my shoes, he is a media myth. You want to read somebody who needed no promotion to get his books to sell or for his ideas to acquire relevance? Read Bastiat's THE LAW.
By the same token, I don't believe people should be compelled to live with strangers or forced to accept anybody in their community anywhere until they have vetted that person. The European Union is all about turning people into livestock and pushing them up chutes into a slaughterhouse. It is the opposite of all that is good and the destruction of untold years of progress in the West in determining what constitutes good governance. Where men are free they will thrive, particularly when they are subject to the consequences of their own folly. Where men are compelled they wither and die.
