I believe that part of the current United States of America should break off to practice anarcho-capitalism of the Rothbardian bent. What am I doing to make that happen? Nothing; I live too comfortably.

If you believe that abortion is murder, what are you doing about it? Nothing; you live too comfortably.

If you believe that American government should redistribute wealth under a democratic-socialist model, what are you doing to make that happen? Nothing; you live too comfortably.

If you believe that people (possibly yourself among them) who bust their butts 60-140 hours a week shouldn’t have more than half that income taken away, what are you doing to lower taxes? Nothing; you live too comfortably. (And yes, that’s taking into account how little time you have.)

If the Supreme Court were to reinterpret the Second Amendment in such a way as to largely eliminate (the legal) private ownership of firearms, and you’re opposed to this, what would you do? You’d complain a lot, and turn in your guns; you live too comfortably to do anything substantial.

If you believe that private ownership of weapons is barbaric, or not that but that we need more sensible gun control laws, what are you doing to make that happen? Nothing; you live too comfortably.

If you believe that human-induced climate change is going to cost lives if we don’t do something about it now, what are you doing to make that happen? Nothing; you live too comfortably.

If you believe the world is run by a pedophile satanist Illuminati, what are you doing to fight them? Nothing; you live too comfortably. (I would also argue that if you did believe that, you’d do something about it no matter how comfortably you live, but you don’t really believe it; it’s entertainment and escape from your real problems.)

If you believe that Barrack Obama is a horrible Kenyan-born Muslim communist who usurped the presidency, that he hates everything America stands for, that his wife’s a man, etc., what did you do about it during the eight years he was president? Nothing; you live too comfortably. (See also the parentheses comment above.)

I believe that Donald Trump, whatever the benefits he offers over Hillary Clinton as President, is exceptionally ill-suited to the presidency. What am I doing about this problem? Nothing; I live too comfortably.

We could change the world, but we live too comfortably. What’s on TV?
