There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

If you are not in prison it is. The US has the highest per capita % of citizens in prisons in the world.
While 1 out of every 142 Americans is now actually in prison, 1 out of every 32 of us is either in prison or on parole from prison, according to yet another report on Americans behaving badly from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.While 1 out of every 142 Americans is now actually in prison, 1 out of every 32 of us is either in prison or on parole from prison, according to yet another report on Americans behaving badly from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Laws can’t bring back the dead. They can only punish the perpetrator. Yet, we still have laws prohibiting murder.What about the medicine man who comes to town and rents space in a private parking lot and sets up shop out of the back of his truck selling miracle cures. I buy some since they come with all sorts of promises and guarantees and take it home to my sick wife. She takes it and dies having been poisoned by the contents.
Please explain to me how a civil suit or a criminal prosecution brings my wife back from the dead and protects her rights?
Certainly, the medicine man would be subject to both civil and criminal penalties for his negligent and fraudulent actions.
You, however, were also an idiot for buying medicine from an unknown man selling out of the back of his truck.
Yes, I would. That is upholding freedom. I don't get to pick and choose and still think I'm doing it, and I'm not dishonest enough to pretend I can.So you would defend the right of a pedophile with multiple convictions to run a daycare or be a grade 1 teacher?
That isn't defending freedom that is insanity

It is still your actions that initiated this force against you however, so any claims of innocence are patently false.
