Just because some people murder people does not make it less bad that you or I or our representatives murder people.

Scepticism is a beautiful thing.

The only reason Che is on t shirts is because he looks cool and sexy.

The 1960 Pulitzer Prize winning photo taken by Andrew Lopez of United Press International shows an army corporal who served under dictator Fulgencio Batista receiving his last rites before being executed by a Castro firing squad.

...is not as funny
But at least it's true.....

But the irony is that the more people refuse to co-operate the more freedom they lose.

It looks a lot like he's talking about the US (with or without mask wearing). Americans are clueless when it comes to defining exactly what 'freedom' in human society (there's the dreaded 'soc' root again) actually means.
