    We also have dolts that argue in favor of social contracts while ignoring the understanding those agreeing to the initial social contract had to say about inalienable rights.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No it couldn't. If everything existed, then someone's "gods" would conflict. You can't have a million of "one true 'god'."
    I didn't say everything could exist altogether. I said everything could exist.

    it seems rather then admit the obvious, they are essentially arguing for no ownership, meaning anybody with the power to control you, owns you from a practical standpoint.

    Authority does not equate to ownership. Even if it did, authority is solely based on one granting another authority over them.
