If someone breaks into your home, you have the right to recoup the losses caused. But if you get the courts to take his home when he didn't burn yours to the ground is too much. That is theft itself, it's no different than the criminal. Only he used a gun and the others use the courts. But its still force applied against the individual and if you aren't getting just compensation, then you're a thief and nothing more. While there are proper laws and punishments, we must be careful not to be too stupid and tread off the path of justice. If we start emotionalizing the system and going off of revenge, then we will destroy the system. It's then no longer a system of justice, but a system of revenge tactics where one merely steals from another but uses the courts instead of a gun. Force is force, there's no way around it. We use it against others a lot, and in ways which are supportive of justice and in ways which are against it. We must be intelligent enough to see the difference. We must call for rational restriction to what can be forced.
Gun or government, it's the same in the end. Just compensation is fine; profit is not. You can't take a man's home if he didn't take yours. If all he steals is a TV then you are entitled to the monetary value of that TV and nothing more. If we become unreasonable, we lose it all. And you can see that happening right now as the court system spirals seemingly out of control. Ignorance and emotion will bring ruin to justice. That's a fact.
