The following debate originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Katherine C…
Katherine C.: A chilling plea from the past.
Charlie Chaplin’s Incredible Speech:
Rayn: No Masters No Rulers!
“As for politics, I’m an Anarchist. I hate goverments and rules and fetters. Can’t stand caged animals. People must be free.” – Charlie Chaplin

Katherine C.: We take for granted the comforts we have with government. Safety being one of them. I know there are exceptions, but we’ve talked about this before. You never gave me a good solution as to stopping serial killers and the like from attacking people that can’t fight back. Your only solution is private security and god knows how they’d get paid because there’d be no money, so I’m assuming we’d revert back to a barter economy.
Cowardice asks the question, is it safe?
Expediency ask the question, is it politic?
Vanity asks the question, is it popular?
But, conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Govenment cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place.” – Dr. Ron Paul
“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears, he is a protector.” – Plato
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” – H.L. Mencken

Rayn: Great idea! Let us subjugate and rob entire populations of *hundreds of millions* because an ultra-minority among us engage in violence against others!
“Government: the brilliant idea that we should stop lunatics from lying, murdering, and stealing from us by hiring lunatics to lie, murder and steal from us.”

“If statists say we need government to control bad people… what about the bad people who join government to control others?”

Rayn: Cops Now Take More Than Robbers:
Rayn: Police Beat Their Wives and Girlfriends at Double the National Rate, Still Receive Promotions:
Rayn: Government: Lethally Enforcing “Public” Funding of Common Thieves, “Legally” Empowered to Rob Us “For Our Own Safety”:
