Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

Libertarian joke

While walking home one evening I came upon a man standing at the edge of a bridge, about to jump. “Wait!” I yelled, and ran over to see what was the matter.

“It’s this country,” he lamented. “It’s falling into ruin and there’s nothing I can do about it. I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.”

“Cheer up,” I said. “We’re all in this together. Say, are you a liberal or a conservative?”

“I’m a libertarian,” he said.

“Me too!” I exclaimed. “See, you’re not alone. Are you a free-market libertarian or a libertarian socialist?”

“Free-market libertarian,” he said.

“Same here!” I said. “Paleo-libertarian or neo-libertarian?”

“Paleo-libertarian,” he said.

“Hey, so am I! Chicago or Austrian school of economics?”

“Austrian,” he said.

“Me too! Hayekian or Rothbardian?”

“Rothbardian,” he said.

“Same as me! Consequentialist or deontological?”

“Consequentialist,” he said.

“Die, statist!” I yelled, and pushed him off the bridge.

    Politics, such a sad state of affairs with all its divisive commentary from all direction. But definitely the source of great humor once we can let go of all the PC BS we are being fed. I loved the joke by the way.
