@AlanLevinovitz@twitter.com A year ago, @Maggie_McNeill@twitter.com said America has reached the stage of decadence. I think we've reached the stage of decay.
Our government's evil continues, this time imprisoning a 9 year old and attempting to coerce a lie from her in order to convict those she was with of a crime they were not guilty of. https://reason.com/blog/2019/03/22/border-agents-detained-a-9-year-old-us-c
Lock-down/Active shooter drills are NOT about safety. These simulated execution rituals are conducted for fear-based mass social control purposes to traumatize, instill fear, hopelessness, personal dis-empowerment, reliance on authority figures to save and protect you. https://twitter.com/ISTAmembers/status/1108461641400807424
This is unspeakably evil.
ICE just told a 10 year old girl appearing at a supervision appointment with her father, that ICE plans to deport her father and give her to a new family. She is unconsolable. ICE instructed dad to bring all of her documents so they can give her away. What would you do?
Why oh why did these esteemed authors write these instruction manuals?
No surprise at all.
ACLU issues a report finding that at least dozens -- possibly hundreds -- of US citizens have been mistakenly detained by ICE in Miami over last few years https://www.aclufl.org/en/citizensonhold
There's a really long thread here, but worth the time.

This is like laughing over an absolutely ridiculous accident where someone gets hurt. You don't *want* to laugh, but it is *soooo* ridiculous....
@DevinCow A little poetic justice.
Hopefully the real sort will follow shortly, with the congresscreature having his suit tossed out of court with an order to pay his victims' legal fees.
I usually tweet about government misconduct. For a change, here appears to be that rare bird, cops who refused to violate constitutional rights. https://reason.com/blog/2019/03/19/majority-of-an-oklahoma-sheriffs-office
Do evil, cause evil. "Thousands of migrant children allegedly suffered sexual abuse while in U.S. government custody over the past four years, according to Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) documents" https://www.cbsnews.com/news/thousands-of-migrant-children-were-sexually-abused-in-u-s-custody-hhs-docs-say/?fbclid=IwAR1u5-jVo_g4jA9BEqM588ILn_Npegg3mVAZfDwxNWOdsTCBQid62SK5gjM&ftag=CNM-00-10aab6a&linkId=64101105
@Solonthethinker@twitter.com @email@example.com A nation doesn't lose its liberty because the government takes it, it loses it because the people no longer want it. The America envisioned by the Founders no longer exists, as the people no longer want liberty and have ceded their right to live to their government.
I have started a blog. Feedback, positive or negative, would be welcome. https://objectivistexit.wordpress.com/
I'm an Objectivist who has "shrugged". It's time to look for exits.
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
Mastodon is a decentralized "federation" of community-run Mastodon servers which are part of an even greater federation called "the Fediverse". No matter how many users are on the instance you join, you can still follow and interact with the millions of users on any other instance throughout the Fediverse!
This is a primarily English-speaking instance, although everyone is welcome.
