It’s About the Future

a thing about civilization

Posted by Citizen on July 17, 2007

This has been around for a while, that’s why I just discovered it and want to pass it on. This cuts both ways of course, guns in a lawless society make for coersion, but that coersion always exists in tyrannies, even if it’s knives or clubs. This is why we treasure our liberty. This is why we abhor those who would deprive us of it. Like OSHA, for example.

why the gun is civilization.

Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it. RTWT, it’s worth it.

This is well reasoned and well written. It will get ‘yea and amen’ from more than half the country, the polite half..,
