Baby Freedom

244 years isn't long in the history of mankind.  What's being touted as 'newer than that' is really just the same old song.  The idea that someone knows what's best for everyone is the tune dictators have been crooning to would-be followers forever.  It doesn't matter how they get their power; authoritarians have always been the reason people kill one another.

If you threaten force without force being threatened to you, you are the bad guy.  Period.  It doesn't matter if you're the controller of resources which you refuse to allow others to share under threat of violence, or if you're trying to force others to share their resources through the use of violence; you're the bad guy.

That's not a subjective opinion.  If you're willing to kill someone who's never threatened you, or anyone else, you don't possess the proper mentality to understand what human freedom would mean.  It's not really any more complicated than that.
