Peace through Firepower by t-subgenius Peace through Firepower by t-subgenius
"If you want peace, prepare for war."


Set this up using 55 of my Mosin Nagant's 7.62x54 rounds on my kitchen floor.

Political commentary, against the idiocy of pacifism? Likely. Protest for some cause? Unlikely. An odd idea at 4:00 in the morning that seemed amusing? You got it.

George Carlin is completely correct and in a rational world we would be able to talk out our problems and come to basic agreements based on mutual respect and concern for others.
Sadly, petty dictators, warlords, tyrants, and other glorified bullies are not know for their rationality or willingness to work things out.  Violence should be the option of last resort and only after all practical avenues for peaceful resolution have been exhausted, and should never be taken lightly.

And how do you feel that "last resort" option you've referred to has been working out for "humanity" thus far? Are we really evolving when all history has taught us is that man has learned nothing from history?

Dictators, warlords, tyrants et al can't make war without people fighting for them on their behalf, so to place the responsibility of war on the aforementioned thugs of society is a cop-out. It's an oversimplified argument when you take into account everything that is needed to make war happen - and by this I mean beyond that of just tyrants - I'm referring specifically to the business of war (Smedley Butler and his essay, War is a Racket), and the propaganda involved to rally the masses behind these campaigns (Joseph Goebbles).

nice ^^

mosin nagant is such a well made rifle. too bad they made the 50 cal rifle that outplays it. but you can never kill the classics. ^^

The .50cal may have superior range and penetration capabilities, but I find the price of the gun itself and the ammunition to be too steep for my taste. Its also very... impractical for any civilian purposes. Mosin Nagant makes for an excellent hunting rifle. The .50cal, not too many wild light armored fighting vehicles running around to harvest.
