Random Missesian song parodies

Way off topic. Here's some partially completed Gilbert & Sullivan song parodys I made as a goof:

MODERN MAJOR GENERAL:

I am the very model of a modern libertarian
I’ve information categorical and praxological
I known the knights of Austria, and I quote their names historical
From Eugen to von Mises, in order categorical
I’m very well acquainted with matters of political economy
I understand currency, both FIAT and commodity
About hyperinflation I’m teeming with a lot o’news
With many depressing facts about the Weimar and what happened to the Jews
I’m very good at understanding high and low time preferences
I know that subsidizing bads just causes more of them
In short, in matters categorical and praxological
I am the very model of a modern libertarian

MIKADO:

If someday it may happen that a victim must be found
I've got a little list, I've got a little list
Of society's offenders who may well be underground
And who never would be missed, they never would be missed.

There’s minarchists who think the state can be somehow be saved
And don’t realize that by its very nature we’re doomed to be enslaved
And Objectivists who write off anarcho-capitalism with a smirk
Who think that limited government might eventually be made to work
And the entire Chicago school with all pro-tax monetarists!

He's got them on a list, he's got them on a list
And they'd none of them be missed, they'll none of them be missed.

There’s the Christian fundamentalists who think liberty is compatible with pro-life
And all the hypocritical anarchists who have a state-approved wife
And the left-libertarian who claims to be a feminist
In the futile hope it helps him have a little tryst

He's got them on a list, he's got them on a list
And they'd none of them be missed, they'll none of them be missed.

There’s all the beltway libertarians infesting Washington D.C.
Such as Weigel, Boaz and Welch and Nick Gillespi
Who think that working within the system is the right path
If only they can kiss enough politician ass
And every-single god damned “constitutionalist”!

He's got them on a list, he's got them on a list
And they'd none of them be missed, they'll none of them be missed.
