    Oh that pesky Biodiversity. Maybe Mr Anderson can do a followup video on mining Biodiversity, the various extraction methods, etc. Mining has to continue becuase we really need rings, coated eyeglass lens and above all computers to watch Mr Anderson’s videos.

    “Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hard-headed realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, & county commissioners.”

    “With self-proclaimed former Area 51 employee Bob Lazar making an appearance on the Joe Rogan Podcast weeks ago, the topic of Area 51 has bubbled back to prominence for the first time in years. ”

    “And now, almost 700,000 Facebook users have pledged to “storm” the area in September in an effort to uncover what they believe to be some hidden unknown truth at the area, according to Fox News.

    “If we [N]aruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens,” the Facebook group for the event says. ”

    “As of the time of writing, 699,000 users were listed on Facebook as “going” to the raid, which is supposed to take place on September 20, at 3AM. On top of that, 640,000 more were listed as “interested” in going to the raid. The plan is supposedly to meet at a nearby “tourist attraction” where they will “coordinate our entry.”

    There’s been more than 21,000 posts on the event’s page, with some users posting ideas about formations and “game plans” on how the raid would take place. ”

    “”They can’t stop all of us,” the event page says.”

    History shows time and again that once real anarchy sets in, the populace yearns for order and a strong leader.

    There is only one thing worse than authoritarian leadership and that is the mob.
