Anonymous asked: Resisting arrest has got to be one of the most ridiculous charges.
Particularly “resisting arrest without violence,” which in Justin Bieber’s case consisted of him saying, “why the fuck are you arresting me?”
So basically, if you question why the cops are arresting you, you are resisting arrest.
If you’re ever arrested and don’t get charged with ‘resisiting arrest’ then I instantly lose a great deal of respect for you.
Democracy is a “religion” in every sense of the word: It deals with an unseen, mystical force (the popular will); it has a priestly class that discerns the popular will (politicians and the media); it has martyrs (soldiers), rituals (voting) and dogmas (“every vote counts”); it aims to fulfill the spiritual need of human beings to be a part of something larger than themselves; and it treats non-believers (non-voters) as heretics to be shamed and ostracized.
