Thread: Another Pleasant OC Contact
Walking out of a Springfield 7-Eleven, I passed again a woman who was waiting in front of the store. After I was beyond her,she asked in a soft voice, "Excuse me, sir. Are you a law enforcement officer? I'm from Chicago. We don't see much of that." Friendly tone. She was almost done asking by the time I got stopped and turned around. I was greeted by a pleasant, slightly embarrassedsmile. I was on my way back to work, so all Ihad time for was a smile and a quick friendly reply to the effect that I was just a citizen taking self-defense seriously.

I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.
If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?
There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
