Government = Evil (No Joke)
Source: Larken Rose
--I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but thugs and sociopaths don't care about being good. They're not trying to be nice to their fellow man. As a result, they don't feel any moral obligation to "obey the law." It is only people who are trying to be good who make an effort to respect and obey authority, and that's only because they've been misled into thinking that subservience to "government" makes them a good person.
And that brings us to the most dangerous, destructive aspect of statism. It doesn't take long for crooks and psychopaths to figure out that, if decent people think it's virtuous to submit to political "authority," then all the crooks and psychopaths have to do is BECOME that political "authority," and they are set for life. Acquire a position of political power, call your thievery "taxation," call your thuggery "law," call disobedience to you "crime," and your victims will feel morally obligated to be victimized. They will take pride in being robbed and abused, and will even help you (the evil bastard) to enslave and oppress others, condemning any who resist tyranny as criminals, rebels and terrorists.
That is the true evil of the belief in "authority," and it can be seen throughout most of human history.

Even The Wall Street Journal Thinks The Market Is Broken
Source: Zero Hedge
--As we've discussed on several occasions, low interest rates have created a number of distorted incentive structures that render typical market signals useless. Perpetually declining interest rates have forced pensions to indiscriminately buy the long end of the the government bond curve in a desperate attempt to match asset duration with their liabilities (see our post "Pension Duration Dilemma - Why Pension Funds Are Driving The Biggest Bond Bubble In History"). Meanwhile equity markets continue to soar to all-time highs, despite lackluster or declining earnings (see "The S&P Is Now Set To Report Its Second Consecutive Annual Earnings Drop Since The Financial Crisis"), on the premise that low-single-digit earnings yields are somehow adequate compensation for equity risk...an assumption they base on the low yields of the completely manipulated long-end of the curve. The circularity of the many arguments is truly mind numbing.

COMMENT: Linked in the article above and also worth reading:
"We've frequently discussed the many problems faced by pension funds. Public and private pension funds around the globe are massively underfunded yet they continue to pay out current claims in full despite insufficient funding to cover future liabilities...also referred to as a ponzi scheme. In fact, we recently noted that the Central States Pension Fund pays out $3.46 in pension funds for every $1 it receives from employers (see our post entitled "407,000 Workers Stunned As Pension Fund Proposes 60% Cuts, Treasury Says "Not Enough"")."

"Covert US Regime Change Actions" Removed from Wikipedia Page
Source: Joe Plummer
Apparently, somebody at Wikipedia felt the article was "too anti-American" and wasn't needed because readers could find similar information elsewhere. So, they basically destroyed it; deleting dozens of documented US interventions and over 150 references.That's OK. I had a backup copy.
