Attribute to L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise

The Operative: You really believe that?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds: I do.
The Operative: You willing to die for that belief?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds: I am... 'course that ain't exactly plan A!
—Joss Whedon, Serenity

About that time Mal shoots the Operative.

American statists have begun to suggest that the Chattanooga Shooter acted on a need to overcome a sense of inadequacy. While getting ready to admit that the shooting might just constitute domestic terrorism they continue to want to deny that the shooter was acting the way he did because he was a bit of a Moslem fanatic convinced that Americans are acting unjustly in territory that should be part of a Moslem caliphate.

American statists do not want to admit people can or should believe in anything other than the benevolent nanny state. By belief I mean give unwavering loyalty to. It is outside their ken that Moslems, or Christians, or libertarians can question that we must fall before the state in obedience, do as we are told, pay our taxes, and accept our bennies.

For better or worse the US is in a war with Moslem extremists who believe that the best way to serve God is to kill His enemies, as defined by their leaders. That is the easy fight. The harder, more difficult and permanent struggle is against those who would make this our faith "there is no god but the state, and its officers are its prophets."

Was that worth reading?
