Thumotic Indulgence

It is Friday, and I leave for the Jersey shore before sunrise tomorrow. I am going to spend the day in Wildwood—it should be fun. Like my father, I tend to like New Jersey far more than most people. After all, the Garden State may now arguably boast in having the best governor in the nation—Chris Christie.

Speaking of politicians, last night I was walking home and came upon Scott Brown’s famous GMC Canyon green truck. I was surprised that a senator would park on the street only a few blocks from the Senate lots when the Senate was still in session. Doesn’t Scotty “Hottie McAwesome” Brown get parking privileges?

Speaking of the Senate, I had dinner with a fellow Ohioan yesterday who is currently an intern and a complete political junkie. He may be a Democrat from Cleveland, but he is nonetheless a nice, well intentioned chap. While we were discussing the state of the state, he said that this current Congress has been the most productive in history and, yet, he could not understand why it is so unpopular. I offered the obvious explanation; Congress is unpopular because it is busy passing unpopular bills. My friend found it difficult to believe that common Americans would have objections to recent Democratic legislative successes. I then responded with a basic and conventional attack on centralized planning with respect to government streamlining (takeover) of the healthcare industry. I pointed out how bureaucratic endeavors are necessarily inefficient and that centralized decision making is always practically ignorant of relevant information—one cannot reduce the complexity of millions of agents in diverse circumstances to a level intelligible to any centralized government body. I furthermore stressed that all regulations ought to pass a cost benefit analysis before implementation. Of course, regulations accomplish some good, but leftists often neglect the fact that all such rules incur a cost. Everything I said was textbook liberalism, but my friend had never encountered such arguments, and they impressed him. Hopefully, I sowed the seeds of anti-statism in his soul. Yet, I find it remarkable that such a political junkie could be ignorant of the fundamental arguments against the all encompassing regulatory state. Have the universities really become echo chambers?

Finally, I offer a treat that Dennis Mangan showcased:

I do not know if the setting is China, Taiwan, or where over there, but I thoroughly enjoy watching what Mangan was inspired to call “a healthy society.” After getting a taste of communal intolerance for crime, my soul demanded more. I ended up wasting an hour watching videos in which the bad guy gets it. Here is some more “thumotic porn”:

The Chinese come through, again. This scene actually looks like a Hollywood action movie, given the guy’s gait, composure, and perfect delivery—until he starts running. Then, however, we get to see another Chinese fellow in a trench coat take the vermin down.

I think that the tourist looking fellow is of East Asian descent, but I am not sure. I love his response. If every assaulted and mugged person acted similarly, the cowardly petty criminals would actually have to find productive work to make money to supplement their welfare checks and bastard breeding benefits.

Americans need to be like the Chinese shown above—every man needs to respond similarly to effrontery against the civil order. Crime should be immediately neutralized. In this one, it is a joy to see the villain hogtied.

In a morbid way, I appreciate how the creep’s body goes limp and falls off the table. It’s sweet justice.

Here is one where the fool gets shot.

I perversely enjoy reading people’s unenlightened commentary, much of it quite offensive. Every now and then, I find a comment that makes me smile. May favorite one for this video: “Foxy Brown!”

I am not one for sucker punches, but criminals deserve them. Recent comment: “And this is where we keep the cash…. *CHACHING*”

And just to break stereotypes, here is a remarkable video of shopkeeper Mohammad Sohail’s compassion for a thief:

It turns out that the would be robber repaid Sohail several months later: “Mohammad Sohail Spares Robber’s Life, Gets ‘Thank You’ And $50.” We also now know why Sohail is such a chill dude for a Paki: “Mohammad Sohail, store owner who took pity on robber, busted for selling illegal drug paraphernalia.”

Lastly, allow me to post a virally magnificent testimony to the strength that ethnic diversity inculcates in our communities, the Muni bus brawl (strong ranguage):

So, what we see here, folks, is that the Chinese will enforce the rules of civil society.

當一個人的原則進行的自覺性和互惠他不遠處的道德律
你不希望別人對你們應該做的,不這樣做他們面前
