Here’s the latest – and briefest – reader question, along with my reply!
Dean asks: What is “AGW”?
My reply: I get this one fairly often – which surprises me, because I usually elaborate the acronym in the article where it appears. At any rate, “AGW” is short for armed government worker. It is a term created by me to refer to those who wear government costumes and carry government issued badges and guns, who enforce the government’s various fatwas – so called because the vast majority are prohibitions and punishments for various actions or non-actions which are properly none of the government’s business because they involve no harm being done to others.
AGW is generally synonymous with the term preferred by AGWs to refer to themselves – “law enforcement” – but eliminates the high and mighty flavor of that term and replaces it with the dreary banal thuggery they embody.
Americans have been conditioned to practically reverence “law enforcers,” which strikes me as slavish and poltroonish. AGW is the antidote as it conveys the actual nature of both the work and those who perform it.
