    No, it's because of the way they've been mismanaged by society...We are our own worst enemies. Government is just an annoyance...and the people that support one side or the other are just confused, very confused about the really relevant aspects of existence. And before someone points out that I'm a vocal liberal...let me explain that one more time. I am a vocal supporter of natural law, justice, fairness, compassion, and common sense. One side, coincidentally or by synchronicity tend to support those things that are important to me...fake or not. As i've said before, I will favor the fakers of good over those that are overtly evil anytime of the day. Fakers are easy to spot and they place limits upon themselves simply because they have to maintain the facade. On the other hand, the evil ones just don't give a sh*t as the last 40 years has evidenced

    I think it would be a good idea to remember that the observer is the observed. Take Ike Turner, for example, who was pilloried for his violence. One would think that he was the only violent person in the world, when in many homes throughout the world violence was rampant. It would seem from this thread that violence still is. Many, many husbands beat up their wives and children, it used to be the norm. Nowadays, the fact that some wives beat up their husband is becoming acknowledged. We are all responsible for Society, and we should know it if we don't.

    They never asked him a relevant philosophical question. He's talking philosophy and their talking practicalities/realities. It was a wasted interview.

    "Because their are limitations, there should be limitations". The interviewers needed to question the logical validity of that statement. It was a giant leap from the assertion to the conclusion.

    Wilson would do better as a philosophy professor than an anarchist...he can do real harm. But then he wouldn't be making the huge bucks that he apparently is.

    In his own words:

    "You're asking me how I would feel? If somebody shot a kid with a Liberator? I guess I'd feel bad. It would be bad. It'd become this whole event. I'm sure I'd have this sinking feeling, 'Oh my God, they're going to make a big circus out of it.'"

    —Interview with The Guardian, February 10, 2014

    “And so, when I see, like, the elimination of a symbol, right, the elimination — I'm not just sympathizing with southern white racists — I'm basically recognizing a dangerous mode of post-politics: the need to eradicate a historical narrative. Not just the need to combat it, the need to make sure that its symbols are gone, the way to articulate it is gone.”

    I hope that people can apply his views about law and freedom to religious issues. People are creating laws to enforce their religion while calling it protecting their religious freedom.

    There's a disconnect with many people where they can't/won't see the religious oppression, yet scream and yell about arms and speech.
