As the ruling classes fail to tremble

“Drug-war conservatives are better than Marxists,” but not that much better:

While conservative drug warriors want to punish people for (in their view) hurting themselves, Marxists want to punish people for bettering themselves and creating jobs (because making money is evil and hiring people is exploitative). So, while both want to criminalize private consensual activities, the Marxists’ goal is to kill the economy entirely, while the conservatives’ goal is to make the people’s lives more miserable for wanting relief from misery, while creating economic opportunities for lawbreakers.

Rock. Hard place. Choose one.

But why do I have to keep having to choose between the two?

Because they have a common enemy, and that common enemy is Everybody Else.

    He has to keep choosing between the two because everyone else who feels the same as he does, hasn’t.

    When beset on the one hand by a hungry tiger and on the other by a hungry crocodile, trying to fight them both at the same time only means they’ll end up fighting over your exhausted carcass.

    Take down the one that presents the more immediate danger, and leave yourself with only one adversary.
