    Somalia is as close to the lack of government you see as ideal, and I would hardly call it utopia. But that's just me........
    No, Somalia is not my ideal at all. It is riddled with violence. The people in their society do not respect the life, liberty, and property of their neighbor.

    Nonsensical statements.

    Can you respond to the points I was making?
    What points?

    I happen to believe in the WE the People concept and proud that it has been upheld by the rule of law in this country under both political parties.

    I don't envision everyone agreeing. I'm not sure why you believe I do, as I have never made such a claim.

    The fact that the government can kidnap your or me, without due processes, and hold me indefinitely without charges. That was the tip off.

    Ah, but protection requires people taking your money from you to pay for that protection, and you said you were against people taking money from you.

    The people in their society do not respect the life, liberty, and property of their neighbor.
    They didn't respect life, liberty, and property in our country either, that's why we have a government. You want your cake and want to eat it too.

    I'll take that as a *no*.

    How about a free society?

    Was that an episode on season two or three of the TWILIGHT ZONE series or was that an OUTER LIMITS?
