George Carlin is hilarious! :lol:

Just today, in Oxford Circus, I was approached by a group of Marxists who invited me to join their socialist cause against David Cameron and to attend a rally with Judith Orr at The Institute of Education in London. I grabbed some of their leaflets but was disappointed: too much on the Left--as they spoke of 'equal rights'--and the stupid word 'Islamophobia', which was invented by Islamic fascists (how ironic), was bought into.

This socialist coterie is opposed to the Tories trying to legislate against labour unions (so am I), but they also disagree with the prime minister's plan to build an anti-migrant bulwark--unlike them, I think the plan is a good idea: fuck the migrants' rights to a cozy life in overpopulated, dangerously multicultural Britain; they will soon realise England is a no-go zone and won't bother making the trip if they know the chances of drowning in the English Channel and Mediterranean are greater!

These socialist liberals describe Europe as a ruthless, capitalist empire and a fascist 'fortress', but the truth is that unidentified migrants are being accommodated. The Labour Party under Corbyn is a disaster and if he ever becomes PM our defences against the Islamic State will weaken. It seems the only good thing they are doing is supporting feminism and equal pay. (It would be comical, however, if members of the Conservative Party said to suffragette Orr, 'You've got no fucking rights because we think George Carlin comically makes a point.') :mrgreen:

If England is overpopulated and dangerously multicultural, then what is Greece? We don't only leave the door unlocked but we go and open it for them. And then the men who are willing to open the doors to our country speak about rights, so to try and make you feel bad for what you may have said or just thought.

You know, it's bad for those people, because they try to defend their fictional rights and they can only complain if you try and go against these rights. I have experienced the "rights" syndrome myself, as I was learning about brutal historical events for example when I was younger and felt the need to speak about it and complain.

I realised that if you hold the idea that the rights are limitless, then you stop complaining about every little thing that just doesn't add to your personal aesthetic. You just create rights that will defend your beliefs and make you act accordingly. It's really that simple. That notion can make you respect the desires of others, make you feel truly free and act instead of complaining.

When I watched the video, in the end when George makes this example about him having the right to do what he pleases and one other having the right to kill him, I thought: "exactly my thoughts!". I had thought of the exact same thing a few years back (a period when I was thinking a lot about that stuff). I was believing that I was alone in that notion. Turns out I'm not.

Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't encourage the one to kill but I wouldn't encourage the other to talk to him about rights either. :D

Too bad George died. I would gladly travel to see him on stage. He's amazing..

It's in tandem with freedom of expression, really: express yourself but remember the important caveat that we live in a consequential world--some actions beget serious repercussions. All these real-life characters found this out: John Lennon; Malcolm X; Martin Luther King Jr; JFK; Hitler; Trotsky; Abraham Lincoln ... Seung-hui Cho in Virginia, too!

You are free to express your views even if it hits a few nerves out there--but so are those who employ any means necessary to stop the opposition during the act of killing (when there is nobody to stop them). :twisted:

Yes, Carlin was great! ;-)
