"Antidisestablishmentarianism" is a handy word to denounce government growth. The word has an obscure historic origin (referring to the disestablisment of the Irish Church), although its more general statist sentiment is clear and makes it fun for any discussion of politics and liberty.

Everyone, especially every anti-establishment type, should resurrect the long word. For example, libertarians often exclaim -

Fight antidisestablishmentarianism !

Other enjoyable options are "Stop antidisestablishmentarianism!"  or "Oppose antidisestablishmentarianism!" or “The government is full of socialists and their antidisestablismentarianism makes me retch.”  Similar quips are infinite to denounce the USA's growing police state and the worship of government by the ritualistic cult of the omnipotent state. and see the Youtube video

The dictionary definition of "Antidisestablishmentarianism" is: opposition to the disestablishment of a church or religious body; specifically, strong opposition to the disestablishment of a State Church, as was manifested in Ireland in 1869, when Gladstone disestablished the Irish Church (Protestant) to which all the people, including Roman Catholics, had been compelled to pay tithes.

With 28 letters, "Antidisestablishmentarianism" is usually the longest word in common large dictionaries.

Searches of the web and newsgroups reveal that the web site RexCurry.Net is the only site that results from a search for "fight antidisestablishmentarianism" and "stop antidisestablishmentarianism" and almost for "oppose antidisestablishmentarianism."

Floccinaucinihilipilification (29 letters) is the action or habit of judging something to be worthless, or to make it worthless. Back in the eighteenth century, Eton College had a grammar book which listed a set of words from Latin which all meant “of little or no value”. In order, those were flocci, nauci, nihili, and pili.  Someone put all of those together and then placed "–fication" on the end to make a noun

The worst example of floccinaucinihilipilification was the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part) under the industrial armies of the socialist trio of atrocities: the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, ~60 million deaths; the People's Republic of China, ~50 million deaths; and the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, ~20 million deaths (numbers from Professor R. J. Rummel's article in the Encyclopedia of Genocide (1999).  Socialists are nuclear bombs.  Socialism is nuclear war.

To oppose taxes and socialism for sports is not floccinaucinihilipilification.  On the contrary, sports fanaticism is a form of antifloccinaucinihilipilification so strong that it leads otherwise-good people to embrace taxes and socialized stadiums.  Many fans behave as if anything they consider Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (34 letters) is deserving of socialistic support and tax subsidies. They antidisestablishmentarianistically (34 letters) rationalize excuses for government subsidies of their entertainment.  The battle cry of socialistic sports nerds has become: “Antidisestablishmentarianism!”

More anti-libertarian language is exposed (and libertarian language tips are provided) at the web site that archives the work of they etymologist Dr. Rex Curry (author of "Pledge of Allegiance Secrets").
