The Wisdom of a Peasant


http://youtu.be/dOOTKA0aGI0

While on his quest for the Holy Grail, King Arthur encounters a lowly peasant by the name of Dennis. The conversation that ensues is nothing short of hilarious.

Hope y'all enjoy.

I heard that there's suppose to be a bit of a reunion scheduled for these guys coming up.

Very funny, but still wrong!

Even voting is wrong.. it doesn't matter if the masses vote anything, it never gives them the right to rule the rest of the people they voted against...

Have the majority vote to take your house and car from you... the majority voted for it so it must be okay, then right? Voting for power is just as absurd as a King.

Some councils require full consensus.

Most jurisdictions already have too many laws.

Free includes debt-free!

Too may laws

Indeed.

Please elaborate

I understand the philosophical basis of your statement. However you provided no evidence to prove that voting is wrong. How else would you have groups arrive at a concensus? Do you abstain from participating in all forms of voting? Are you going to down vote my comment because I do not agree with you? Enlighten me.

What proof would satisfy...

What proof would satisfy your curiosity? I'm not sure what evidence would be accepted as "proof" that one cannot give away something (a right in this case) that they themselves do not possess.

So, let's say the masses get together and decide to vote to tax themselves to fund their new "government" or whatever they feel inclined to call their new societal order.

51 people vote yes, and 49 vote no. What proof could I give you that shows that the 51 people who voted yes have NO right to take the money (taxes) from the other 49 people who voted no?

The only way that this is okay is if before the vote, all 100 people got together and all 100 agreed to abide by the majority's rule. But then, the jurisdiction of that body would only be applicable to those 100 people who agreed to be bound by the will of the majority.

New inhabitants of the territory claimed by the 100 would not be under their jurisdiction unless they voluntarily joined.

So generally speaking, when someone says voting is wrong, in my opinion, they really mean to be subjected to an agreement or laws which we were never given an opportunity to debate and discuss or agree on is wrong...and not just. And to not be allowed to opt out of the entire system means that it's not a voluntary arrangement. And if it's not a voluntary system that we want to be in, and we're not allowed to disassociate, then we're definitely not free men.

I agree with your example.

Rob, my question was not posed to you as you were not the one who made the comment that "voting is wrong".

Thank you for attempting to satisfy my curiosity but your attempts are futile. My curiosity is insatiable and the day it is satisfied is the day I wish to perish.

My question was merely rhetorical. Of course voting away people's rights is a violation of natural law. My rights are divine and no vote will ever change that.

There are however, instances when voting is right.
Heres one, how about voting against military intervention in Syria. Here's another, how about voting against raising the debt ceiling?

My point, which obviously needs to be spelled out is that the premise "voting is wrong" is incorrect, or needs to be qualified with supporting information in order to make it true, such as "Voting for Obama is wrong!"

I think the point he's making

I think the point he's making is that any voting implies a rule of majority over a dissenting minority. The principle is certainly valid but I think a further point should be made that a recognition of the right of said minority to secession must ALSO be acknowledged if such a system is to be considered moral and valid. There's nothing inherently wrong with a system of voting as far as I'm concerned, so long as the right of the dissenters to secession from the system is likewise acknowledged.

Like Lord John Acton stated in a letter to Robert E Lee after the South's war for independence, "I saw in State Rights the only availing check upon the absolutism of the sovereign will, and secession filled me with hope, not as the destruction but as the redemption of Democracy."

Well put.

I concur.

Anyways, hilarious. I haven't seen that in years! Thanks :)
