While I'm sure a few of you might call me a maggot or parasite once again for disagreeing with you, given the recent threads advocating or reporting threats of violence of one form or another (whether by the left, with their Stalinistic suggestion to imprison political dissidents or by the right with their death threats against Obama), I thought it might be a nice time to restate the Zero Aggression Principle:

"No human being has the right, under ANY circumstances, to initiate force against another human being, nor to advocate or delegate its initiation."

I think the world would be a better place if more of you tried to live by that principle.

And King George would be a subject of Rome.

That's just plain silly.

You can bet that if I'm kidnapped, say for ransom, I'm going to initiate force against and maybe even kill my captors so as to gain my freedom.

Or some junkie high as a kite is holding a knife or gun to some innocent bystander that junkie deserves to be blown completely away.

Ok, for those of you whose reading comprehension skills need a little work, focus on the word initiate.

I won't initiate aggression toward you, but if you attack me, I'll fight back.

With racism the way it is on C-D, nothing I read surprises me.
