After two years of dealing with the absurd and comical attempts by the National Park Service to regulate my business, it gladdened my heart to read this diatribe against them by the head of the Alaskan Alpine Club. I could not have said it better:
National Parks remain as Police-States ruled by malicious, armed, mental midget thugs who could not understand these words even if you handed them a dictionary. They write and impose laws to criminalize all human actions, so the thugs can arrest people at whim, to feed the childish ego of Park Police bullies, and to create enforcement budget excuses. Rights have been turned into privileges, grantable and deniable at the whim of petty police thugs. They are still writing more laws. They cannot stop writing laws, and will continue to more extensively criminalize what they have already criminalized, and arrest more people, until they eat their own, on schedule. Inherently self-defeating power cannot recognize the process of human reasoning which can demarcate between harmful and harmless actions. Power demands to be worshiped because of raw power alone, void of a human thinking process. Pity them. Give them the hollow flattery and worship they crave, and dance to the tune of their paperwork idiot-drills, if you wish, to avoid arrest, if you do not learn the other processes, while laughing yourself to tears at petty power-damaged minds.
