Quote of the day—Lyle@UltiMAK

I suppose that if we’re going to discuss who is compensating for what; the argument could be made that those who want more government in their lives, those who feel the need for the forceful interventions by government, are compensating for a lack of confidence in their ability to interact productively with other people in a free society. They don’t see themselves as capable of prospering when the rules are level and people’s rights are equally protected, so they have to advocate a system that gives them some special advantage over their betters. They’re compensating for weakness, meekness, timidity, self loathing, lack of imagination and other inabilities, so they’re looking for outlets for their jealousy and the hatred that comes from it.

[This makes a lot more sense than some sort of penis envy the anti-gun people claim to exist in regards to firearms ownership.—Joe]

  1. It makes perfect sense…that’s why those who are against freedom push the lie so hard.

    Me compensating my ability to defend my life against a vicious attacker with a gun makes sense.

    Me compensating for my sexual abilities with a gun is silly and stupid.

    If they can make me silly and stupid they don’t have to answer to the harsh truth of reality.

  2. In the words of the anti-gunners, they are obviously compensating for having a small penis, heh, heh, heh.

  3. And in the words of the advocates for boys, you’re just as bad as they are for doing what they do, oops, oops, oops.

  4. This is probably one of the best QOTD that you’ve had on here. I don’t know how anyone on the other side could level a meaningful against the truth in that statement.

  5. Yes, this one belongs in your QOTD Hall of Fame because it clarifies so much of the current dispute.
    I forget if it’s Freud or Milton Friedman who said that when people fear the future they really fear their own abilities to cope.

  6. When you consider that, almost without exception, anti-gun folks who fall back on the “big gun means small penis” canard, are also the same types of people who say “only professionals–the police and the soldiers–should have guns!” What does this tell us about their opinion of police officers and soldiers?

    I, for one, can only come to one conclusion: that these people believe police and soldiers have small penises.

    I have no idea why we should listen to people who have no respect for the only people they claim are professional enough to carry guns!
