thanks gents.[edit]

changes are excellent. the passage is now what i would call an authoritative and complete description of some of the core similarities we share. i thank you for your work and contributions.

i wish there were a way to differentiate the a ---> b transaction of the act of giving/charity from the a ---> b ---> c where b takes from a using statutory authority and gives to c in a relationship which, absent the government construct, would be defined as theft, or unreasonable seizure, or an unjust taking. even in imminent domain, property is not seized for assignation but for public use, and must involve reasonable compensation. put another way, if you come to take my money and give it to your friend (who may or may not actually need it), i call you a thief and give you a whipping. if a politician comes and takes my money, gives it to the friend, i can lose my home or be imprisoned for refusal to submit to what would otherwise be violative behavior. — Unsigned, by: Jigsaw674 / talk / contribs

Please limit the content to the subject at hand, and keep World Nut Daily like topics concerning Tax protester arguments to their respective subject. ~ Subsound ~ 22:45, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

What idiots[edit]

These people are ultimate proofs of MBTI. They exactly fit the definition for ESTJ: traditional, meddling, literal-minded, unimaginative, dull, nearsighted, unable to think outside the box, acting before thinking, not caring about the freedoms or feelings of other people, and finding pleasure in accepting a fallible dogma as the absolute truth and denying all evidence to the contrary just because it saves them of thinking.

Updated External Link[edit]

The link for the All Fundamentalists Believe the Same Things article has changed, and the link needs to be updated. The new url is http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2004/12/evolutionary-theology-those-of-you-who.html — Unsigned, by: 108.131.50.84 / talk / contribs 23:50, 17 July 2014‎ (UTC)

Political fundamentalism[edit]

I think the article should be expanded to include fundamentalism of political ideologies like say marxism, libertarianism, objectivism and such. I mean Marxists (especially of the Marxist-Leninist variety but also left communists) adhere strictly to the original ideas and reject any form of alternative as revisionism. There's also the worship of Ayn Rand bordering on cult and Libertarianism support for free market dictatorships like Chile used to be (although one can argue that they were being merely assholes and not fundies). 89.152.85.96 (talk) 06:21, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Silver?[edit]

I would say bronze; citations lacking in several places. (And few citations overall.)--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 16:11, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

To me, this article is currently somewhere between bronze and no brainstar. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:52, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
