    A libertarian state would mean complete liberty for a few powerful elites and misery for the remaining population.

    I believe the techincal term for what I am is smart-arse.

    But you're the one saying the only way to be perfect is to be a Jewish virgin.

    Depends on which scriptures you read. The ones left out of the Bible that discuss Jesus in his adolescence would tend to disagree with him being prefect. I like the one where he pushed someone off of a roof so that he could revive him and show off his powers.

    Well, that may not be exactly how it goes, but I think that's pretty accurate.

    yeah sheep want the protection of the farmer rather than taking chances with a few wolves even if some of those in the pasture are loyal and fierce sheepdogs. But while the wolf will kill a few sheeps in random acts of terror, sooner or later the farmer will shear, castrate and slaughter all enjoying the protection of the pens.
