I like cheese on my fries, cheese on my burgers, and nuthin' else.

"The whole cooperative enterprise of human civilization"

Mostly about killing the folks 'over there' so as to take their stuff.

...or...

Bending nature in ways folks like.


Ain't got diddly to do with good feelings or communitarian clap-trap.

Cooperation is about self-interest.

Altruism is for loons, pussies, and liars.

It certainly explains the philosophy of right wing extremists.

That whole post rocked my world, but that last paragraph is lovely.
Shameless self-appreciation. Bumped because I'm reading my old threads, looking for something.
