Response to PowerToThePeople (Reply #30)

31. Yes, but what power do you imagine the people having if the PTB possess an ironclad

monopoly on the use of force?

Your username already implies that people are without power and the PTB are inflicting injuries and insults against them. That speaks to the fact that the PTB are not beneficent, they do not have our best interests at heart and are willing to abuse their authority for their own gain.

So why, exactly, do you trust them to peacefully and kindly keep their place once you have given them a populace that is defenseless?
