There is a woman, lafayetteeast, who feels that all of my complaints about government are negative. You can see the back and forth at
lafayetteeast: “Ralph: yes … you’ve hit your nail on the head … you despise …. you are a negativity freak … everything with you is negative … you are a person who ‘despises’ …. rather than being creative or positive. Think if you put all that energy into positive solutions rather than simply ‘despising.’ You spew invectives AGAINST nearly everything and everyone. You complain, complain, complain … for someone as bright as you are, I think it’s an incredibly wasted use of your considerable talents and energies.”
Let me make this clear.
If I were living in the 1860′s I would be an abolitionist because I _DESPISE_ slavery.
I would be negative negative negative … and the only solution I would offer is to …
free the slaves.
I despise the unnecessary and ludicrous controls placed on humans by out-of-control governments and my solution — like Chuck’s [see Chuck Wright's comments of http://www.dailycamera.com/news/2009/apr/20/20elet/] — is to, well, …
Stop the slavery. Stop the controls.
Free the slaves.

If you had been living back then, lafayetteeast, would you solution be to enact laws to make the slaves more comfortable? That’s a nice positive solution.
Sometimes the right solution is to stop the thing that is making people miserable.
Just tear down the institutions of slavery.
