I have discovered the precise formula to measure the outrage felt by liberty minded individuals over a news event regarding government malfeasance.
EA x SOL= $#@!
EA= the enforcement action taken by the government. Basically, what means are used to achieve the government’s goal. The lower end would of this scale would be public service announcements, at the higher end waterboarding at GITMO.
SOL= Stupidity of law. How stupid is the law being enforced? My feelings about consensual crimes are well known. At the low end of this scale would be crimes with actual victims, the higher end would include malum prohibitum offenses. The highest score would probably be revenue generation “crimes” like truancy enforcement.
$#@! is the outrage felt by people who value liberty, privacy, freedom etc.
This video would probably achieve one of the highest values possible (until we send a DISD truant to GITMO).
