I can't stop laughing

Link goes here. For those of you who haven't been following, the state wants to spray some stuff in various areas including here to kill off a bunch of moths so they don't eat crops. The city governments of the folks getting sprayed are all pissy about it.

I find the discussion hilarious. Decade after decade, the prevailing forces here have insisted that everyone defer to the government because government knows best, and you should sacrifice for the greater good, and government should serve as God for all people. Unless, of course, the government does something they don't like, at which point it's up to "the people" to rebel against the government. But these rebellions should only take place when "the people" agree with the prevailing political forces in Berkeley. Otherwise, they're just being selfish or evil.

So I can't help but laugh when all of a sudden their worship of government as God backfires when God takes orders from other people. Come on, guys. Quit complaining. Sacrifice for the greater good. The government was duly elected, after all... who are you to complain?

Come join us in libertarianville, where we actually have a philosophical basis for distrusting government beyond "this time they're doing something we don't like."

For what it's worth, the majority of people I've encountered who care anything at all about "Chemtrails" tend to be ban-the-FDA replace-taxes-with-"freedom" Ron Paul types. From what I'm seeing in this article, it looked like a hundred or so nuts complained about something the government was doing, as happens whenever the government does anything, which will likely result in an investigation of the spray's health effects. I see very little to gloat about.

Seriously, though. If this were Libertopia we'd have been sprayed ten times over and the only inquiry that would have gone into it would have been how to make the spraying process cheaper.
