Thats why we are min archaists. Basically the government just does things like protect us and our rights. NOT fucking fine me for not wearing a seatbelt!! Or take half my money! Or arrest me for smoking a joint!! Or tap my fucking phones. Or monitor me. Or issue me a secret terror rating threat and monitor the food I eat and how heavy my baggage is on the plane!

Finally someone who gets it. BUT not all the way. Just most of it. Because if you take it all away, we will not have roads schools or police and army's to protect us. So SMALL but not gone.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself John Stuart Mill
