Where can I find them?

I don't look at TAA much, he's very...not funny.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"

I'll dig up the URL for you.
Just to warn you though.
A huge number of the pictures involve jailbait (underage, overdeveloped girls), and jokes about it, e.g.  "If no one wanted to fuck it, there wouldn't be a law against it".
Just to give you that warning.
You sure you want to see it?

I found this one by LadyAttis hilarious (I know some of you have already seen it  :)):

"Capitalism:  An economic system based on private ownership of capital" --Princeton's online dictionary.

Also the way every single textbook in social studies I've had defines it.
That definition in mind, here's what I don't get.  Why is it that Agorists (which I don't consider myself one for various reasons..) consider what we have to be a "capitalist" economy?
If "capital" (say, capital goods or money) are owned privately, that implies title, control, liability, use and disposal.
Since the big corporations in our system are shielded from liability,
most normal people don't have control, title, or use via state restrictions all over the economy in countless ways,
how they what we have in ANY way be considered a "Capitalist" economy?
They argue, "well, this is what capitalism is; how it exists."
OK, except then that means that it DOESN'T exist, at least not in great enough proportion to be considered the primary part of the system.
What we have is the result of the State (what many call government), not of capitalism being tried and then leading to it (as Shane worded differently than me in his Question & Answer videos).

As Shane said, "We're NOT a primarily capitalist economy.  We're a primarily corporatist economy and have been for full on a century now."

“Whatever the issue, let freedom offer us a hundred choices, instead of having government force one answer on everyone.” —Harry Browne

I want to put the quote where he compared Republicans to Libertarians here from his book.
Would that violate copyright law?
It's a big quote, but still so awesome...

Awesome!  ;D

"
  • Republican politicians want to reform or slow down the growth
    of government programs. Libertarians want to eliminate them.
  • Republicans want government to 'cut' the growth rate of
    government. Libertarians want to shrink government
    dramatically.
  • Republicans want to use government to promote good causes.
    Libertarians support the private promotion of good causes —
    and they don’t want government forcing its version of goodness
    on anyone.
  • Republicans say we need a large military to continue our foreign
    policy successes. Libertarians wonder what those successes are.
  • Republicans see that federal, state, and local taxes combined
    took only 8% of the national income in 1900, and now take
    48%; they say that’s too much and promise to cut it back to
    47%. Libertarians wonder whether 8% was too much.
  • Republicans want to increase the budget for seven years, and
    then balance the bigger budget. Libertarians want to balance a
    much smaller budget immediately.
  • Libertarians won’t vote for any bill increasing the size or power
    of government. Republicans won’t vote for any bill their
    pollsters reject.
  • Libertarians aggressively propose and support bills to make
    huge cuts in the size, scope, and power of government.
    Republicans support bills their party leaders tell them to vote
    for."
--Harry Browne, Why Government Doesn't Work, pages 211 & 212


This is the quote I was thinking of.
I like this one.

The truth is unattainable.  It will always be shrouded in fog.  Though you reach through the murk and the gloom to grasp something, you have no means to know it is the truth.  In which case, why?  What sense is there in yearning for truth?  Close your eyes, lie to yourself, live in blissful ignorance.  It is a much smarter way to exist.
Obtaining the truth is simple, all you have to do is believe it is the truth.  Very well, then I will grant you one truth...you will all die here! - Shadow Teddie, Persona 4

I love this game so much.  "Truth vs. deception" is one of it's big themes as you can no doubt tell.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
