Attention must be earned (politicians not excluded)

Attention to politicians must never be paid as a gesture of kindness or as an act of moral duty. They do not deserve our courtesy nor is there anything about their glorified and self-proclaimed positions of servitude that warrants our unqualified respect. We must compel them to earn the time, money, energy, faith, and loyalty that they so freely ask of us.

  1. “We must compel them …” I think you do not understand who is holding the gun in the room. We should ignore them until they put down the gun.

    1. Not only do I understand who has the gun, but I also understand the power that sustains the state’s ability to wield a gun in the first place. Gun or no gun, all political power is derived from the people. More to the point of what I wrote though, “ignore them until they put down the gun” is precisely what I mean by “compel them to earn the attention, time, energy, money, faith, and loyalty they freely ask of us.”
