    Silly, Silly, Silly! If we came to take your guns away from you, it would not be a civil war it would be national war, a war between two nations. But worry not, we abide by the Geneva Conventions, and we are magnanimous in victory.

    You give the evidence yourself when you tell us that guns are necessary to protect yourself against your own democratically elected government. This is a textbook case of paranoia.

    I suspect you are more afraid of your psyche and your archetype being understood.

    We have looked the unknown in the face and discovered our own psyche and our own archetype.

    Yet your psyche and archetype remain unknown even on a site devoted to psychology.

    Your psychological defences are magnificent.

    You don't really need a gun to defend your psyche. As guns are a neurotic projection of your psychological defences.

    So what are you defending against?

    President Eisenhower was right: the military industrial complex has even taken over you mind. You have learned to stop worrying and love the gun.

    And you even repeat the nonsense that the absence of war is not peace.

    Mein Gott! Humpty Dumpty was right when Alice asked:

    "The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
    "The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master—that's all."

    Hello 93JC, you were right, as I suspected you were/are all along. However my own code of conduct required that I give this person the benefit of the doubt and time after time has shown themselves unworthy of it. Anyone else I need to put on "ignore"?

    I'm sure you will come to realize who else you should put on ignore in due course.

    There was no war in the concentration camps, but I would hardly call what the Jews experienced there peace.

    You never answered my question about whether it would have been better to appease Hitler in order to avoid World War II. Perhaps you think the world would have been a better place had the Nazis taken over. After all, no one makes war under a dictatorship.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    "The twentieth century has been “referred to as the ‘age of genocide.”’ [247] Genocides killed four times as many persons as war and revolutions did in the twentieth century. [248] Between 1900 and 1988, 170 million people were killed in government-related genocides. [249]

    "Many tyrannical governments in the twentieth century disarmed their populations before committing genocide. When people fought back with any arms available, they were sometimes successful in fending off tyranny. For example, “[t]he Turks systematically disarmed the Armenians” over twenty-five years in the 1900s and then “kill[ed] at least one million [Armenians].” [250] Small groups of Armenians who kept guns were able to defeat the Turks and reach sea to evacuate. [251] In the 1970s, the Khmer Rouge collected the people's guns and then began a massacre that led to the slaughter of 2,000,000 people. [252] Also in the 1970s, Uganda's 25,000-member army killed 500,000 people. [253] A small army of that nature could have had serious trouble in defeating an armed populace. [254] In Indonesia, 500,000 “suspected Communists were slaughtered.” [255] If the people had more arms, they could have repelled a portion of the slaughter. [256] Genocides have also occurred in the former Soviet Union, China, Rwanda, Iran, Iraq, and the Sudan. [257] If the Chinese citizenry kept arms, their rulers' ability to overpower and kill them in Tiananmen Square would have at least been curtailed. [258]"

    This thread sure could use some gun porn.



    You're welcome.
