    Sorry, I never agreed to your contract. It clearly has no validity and I have no reason to obey it.

    If you benefit in any way from the trappings of civilization, you've agreed to it. Don't like it? Go live off the grid, grow and hunt your own food, no electricity, no military protection, no nothing that arose out of civilization.

    That doesn't mean I agreed to some kind of contract. Benefiting from something doesn't mean you agreed to it.

    If you benefit from it without agreeing to it, then you're being a parasite. In any case, there will always be anarchists who'll think the whole social contract thing was a poor idea, but the rest of the world has consistently accepted that all things considered, it's been preferable to the alternative. But again, if you don't like it, go live off the grid. There are still many parts of the world where you could disappear into the wilderness of Alaska or Northern Canada and pull it off.

    Besides those in government name me one person that ever consented to their government? Don't feel bad if you can't do this. Now, find me historical proof of this social contract being formulated or agreed to. Again, don't feel bad if you can't do this. So, if you are a parasite for benefiting from something you never agreed to, does that mean we are all parasites?

    What facile dodging that is. If you take the position that you should benefit from something without personally agreeing to it, then it's effectively no different than the teenager who argues that he should be able to live rent free with his parents and not have to do any chores. This belief, free of personal responsibility severely diminishes the credibility of your position. If you aren't willing to make the necessary sacrifices for your beliefs then don't expect anyone to take them very seriously. And if you can't do that then you are a parasite, pure and simple.

    How do you figure that the man got the bad end of this.

    She gets pregnant. He gets her to quit her job (in this economy?) and move to raise their child. There is a ring and a promise to marry. The whole time he is betraying her? Takes money to relocate and takes time to get a job back.

    Seems like his wounds were self inflicted. He was his own worst enemy.
