Political filk — very funny.

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.
