    Apparently, what you delude yourself into believing my words mean , are not what my words mean. But if you want to follow Alice down the rabbit hole, be my guest.

    You seem to have a fundamental lack of understanding about where our laws come from. We live in a representative democracy and it is our elected representatives who pass the laws you seem to loathe about taxation.

    our laws come from various things--pandering to the masses is one source. and in a society where quantity often trumps quality, that is a given

    Then you should have written what you actually wanted to say -- whatever that is -- because what your words mean is plain as day. You said if we ever lived in a society based on individual liberty -- and that was probably a myth -- that world is dead and gone and people like me who think we do need to get with the times. There's no other way to read your words. Your problem.

    Again with the smug, self righteous snobbery painting yourself as the informed elite above the unwashed masses. This is indeed pathological with you.

    While mocking antiquated, mythical notions of things like "individual liberty," yes.
