But what would happen if a critical mass of former victims were to reject terrocrat words, were to stop believing them, were to attack and ridicule them, and were to carefully and judiciously stop obeying them?

Build freedom for a laughriot
In his classic book Nineteen-Eighty-Four, George Orwell coined terms like “thoughtcrime” and “crimestop.” If your current knowledge is “legal,” then some of the ideas presented here are “thoughtcrimes.” From the terrocrat perspective, attacking and ridiculing their words is no doubt a thoughtcrime.[linkview show_cat_name=”0″ cat_name=”Lulz”]
Throughout history, cartoons have irritated the powerful. “King Philippe was upset with Daumier’s caricatures of him as ‘the fathead.’ He knew the masses were seeing these things and were making judgements about him, and that’s true right up until Boss Tweed, who famously said, ‘I don’t care what they write about me but get rid of those damn pictures.’”[linkview show_cat_name=”0″ cat_name=”Lulz Cartoons”]
The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.
Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.
But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.
This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.

“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

George Carlin[It’s] “not important to get children to read. Children who wanna read are gonna read. Kids who want to learn to read going to learn to read. Much more important to teach children to QUESTION what they read. Children should be taught to question everything. To question everything they read, everything they hear. Children should be taught to question authority. Parents never teach their children to question authority because parents are authority figures themselves, and they don’t want to undermine their own bullshit inside the household. So they stroke the kid and the kid strokes them, and they all stroke each other, all grow up all fucked up, and they come to shows like this.” [linkview show_cat_name=”0″ cat_name=”George Carlin”]
