Note to the OMG-ISIS-Is-Coming-To-Get-Us Crowd
by Ryan McMaken
Dear Friend: I know that you have lots of “evidence” about how ISIS is going to begin beheading people is downtown Phoenix any day now. Good for you. But let me save you a little time. Please just skip to the part that really matters to you: telling me which few remaining freedoms I should immediately surrender and how we need to give the government more money and more power to battle this latest “existential threat.”
By the way, as you are so committed to stopping that imminent amphibious assault by ISIS on the shores of South Carolina, let me just remind you of this: No one is stopping you from funding and enlisting in a military unit in Syria or Kurdistan. I wish you the best of luck. Your amazing courage requires no less of you, right?
