"All monopolies are bad, except for the one I support"

A quick look into the mind of a statist.

You know what's funny? It's funny that all the people who claim to be "against monopolies" (and support "anti-dumping measures") fully advocate for a monopoly of aggression to punish those who are perceived to be "dumpers". See, when Government has a monopoly, it's good.

For some reason, this evokes in my mind the mindset of religious people, when they say "you shall not murder", but celebrate and apologize righteous murder, when it is committed by their God. See, when God does it, it's infinitely good.

So, just like the standard monotheist, these people have no problem with an egregious double standard, sitting on the living room of their minds, like a big fat elephant. And they will usually chew your head off, if you dare point out this elephant to them.

Hypocrisy or mental malfunction? You decide!
