I’m not fan of organized religion of any kind but I’m huge fan of freedom. Freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of association, economic freedom and private property rights. Basically any freedom that doesn’t involve theft of or harm to others and/or their private property, I support. Clearly the western world no longer offers any type of real freedom and it has gone completely insane, but in even today’s world where articles in The Onion are often more believable than those in the New York Times, rarely do we find an example that demonstrates so clearly and concisely the depths to which western civilization has sunk.

How much further can this insanity go? Isn’t it time for open revolt yet?
