Pope John Paul II vs Dr. Lil Bil

Pope John Paul II
"Many people are now tempted to self-indulgence and consumerism, and human identity is often defined by what one owns. Prosperity and influence even when they are only beginning to be available to larger strata of society, tend to make people assume that they have a right to all that prosperity can bring, and thus they can become more selfish in their demands. Everybody wants complete freedom in all areas of human behavior, and new models of morality are being proposed in the name of would-be freedom.
.....the challenge that is already with us is the temptation to accept as true freedom what in reality is only a new form of slavery."

The Evil "Dr." ( I have a bachelor's degree) Lil' Bill

"We have argued hard and long in opposition to this nightmare of slinking socialism. We have done everything that could be done to alert those who purport to represent our liberty but sold us all down the river of statism. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated, we have prostrated ourselves before the very halls of government, and have implored its interposition to arrest its growing tyrannical hands and its web of influence and dependency. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional insults; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the local boards of education, to the halls of the state capital, to the floor of congress, and the presidency itself. In vain could we only hope of reconciliation at this late date. There is no longer any room for hope and even less for any foolish compromises. If we wish to be free-if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending-if we mean not basely to abandon the nobel struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained-we must separate from this bastardized union! I repeat, we must as is our inalienable right dissolve the political bands which have connected us since the founding and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle us. An appeal to secession and to the freedom of mankind is all that is left us!

They tell us that we are extreme, that modern society has moved beyond the quaint notions of individual liberty and freedom, that it is "democracy" which is the god to which we should worship. But this god is a god of sacrifice, not for us but by us. What event will it take to move our souls to act? Will it be next year, or the year after? Will it take an avowed socialist elected as president before we rebel? Or a United Nations to which we are subordinate in all affects? Shall we garner strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies have us fully enslaved at both the rhetorical and literal point of a gun? We are anything but extreme, if by extreme one implies an absolute demand for those inalienable rights granted to us by our enlightened forefathers. The battle is not to the intellectuals alone; it is to the vigilant, the practical, the traders and businessmen, the objective scientists, industrialists, engineers - the brave men and women who are willing to stand up and speak, write and argue for our independence from the tyranny now known as The United States of America. Make no mistake about it, our chains are already forged and many of us wear them yet do not even see them. Whether we like it or not, our die has been cast, our freedom has been taken, we must act or liberty will be lost in this world forever - let the struggle begin here and now!"

Give me brevity or give me death. My God, Dr. Bill can give anyone a migraine with his form of clear and concise communication. What the hell is he talking about again?

There's nothing more inspirational than to start the day with a hefty does of Dr. Bill Rant. His unintelligible profundity just gets you in the mood to be pissed off at the world for at least the next 24 hours. Thanks Dr. Bill, you made my day!

Is he a new founding father? said...

Is Dr. Li'l Bil suggesting that Hayward, Wisconsin succeed from the United States? A tax-free haven for pure libertarians? First step: close down the Hayward school district. Kids can all be home schooled or taught in their local church (bring your own Koran). Next step: Shut down all city services. True freedom means taking your shits in the woods. Next step: arm all citizens with as much firepower as possible just in case some citizens want to take other citizens firearms away. Fine with me. But I'm going to miss seeing that giant muskie without bringing my passport.

I don't think Dr. Lil'Bil has the al-Lure of a Founding Father, if you know what I mean. Perhaps, a Floundering Father like him could bait a small cadre of wackos to transform the Big Muskie from an occasional wedding chapel to a fully ready armed fortress, capable or fending off any stray environmentalist who may wonder down the Namakogen.
