Political filk — very funny.

Pol: Nixon and Elvis
dietrich posted this parody of libertarianism, based on “I am the very model of a modern major general”. Allow me to quote the first verse:
I am the very model of a modern Libertarian:
I teem with glowing notions for proposals millenarian,
I've nothing but contempt for ideologies collectivist
(My own ideas of social good tend more toward the Objectivist).
You see, I've just discovered, by my intellectual bravery,
That civic obligations are all tantamount to slavery;
And thus that ancient pastime, viz., complaining of taxation,
Assumes the glorious aspect of a war for liberation!
But go read the whole thing! It appears to have originally come from here.

Sums up my political biases against libertarianism perfectly.

How very deep.
3rd-Nov-2006 04:10 pm (UTC) - That was a parody?
I also very much enjoyed the original author's apology statement.

Lotta truth in that.

My problem here...I don't really want to identify with ANY point on the political spectrum but, if I had to pick one, the libertarians are probably my choice. The extreme Libs are just as wacko as the extremists in any other group, but at least they keep the government out--and, more and more, I am viewing our government as a worse evil than what we would have without it.

I really don't like having this view. :
