For those who don't know (if there is anyone), Charles Manson, a notorious mass-murderer, was the head of "the Family," which several decades ago went on a killing spree. Now, at first glance, you might wonder why I would nominate such a person for the Nobel Peace Prize. Well, I base my argument on comparison, rather than on an objective examination of Mr. Manson's personal achievements. I will show that, compared to Barrack Obama, Mr. Manson is far more deserving of the Prize.
What is it that "governments" do? Do they make helpful suggestions? Do they show, by example, how to lead moral lives? Do they bring us together and reward cooperation? No, they use violence to control people. And that's all they ever do, though they often try to hide it under lame veils of "compassion," and bullpoop about the "common good." Oddly, the title of one of Charles Manson's songs is disturbingly appropriate to the plans of Mr. Obama, and all other "government" "leaders": "I'm Scratching Peace Symbols on Your Tombstone."
What "governments" do is pass and enforce "laws": demands and commands backed by the threat of violence. Every once in a while, a threat of violence is actually justified, such as, "Give the lady back her purse, or I'll slug you." But only a tiny fraction of threats by the state (which they call "laws") fit into the category of defensive, legitimate threats. And nothing Obama is pushing is about using force to defend against aggressors; it is all about committing aggression, against people who have committed no force or fraud. (If you actually believe that "Obamacare" is about adding a new option for you, you need your head examined.)
Like Charles Manson, and like every other "President," of either party, Barrack Obama is a mass murderer. (They are also all cowards, because they make other people do their dirty work for them.) And Obama just got $10,000,000 for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." Cooperation?!? Do the morons who hand this thing out know the difference between coercion and cooperation? Apparently not. "Government" is never about "cooperation," and it is never about "peace." It is about a ruling class forcibly controlling everyone else. And it takes years of authoritarian indoctrination to make the general public so stupid that it can't see that obvious fact.
I mean, really ... Obama? The Nobel Peace Prize? The Nobel Peace Prize?!?! Are you kiding me? Good grief!
