    In 1913, everyone could comfortably take for granted that there was no danger from the person with the rifle.

    Today we don't have that assurance, which is why we need laws against disturbing the peace. Is that really progress?

    Oh, lest I derail with historical musings:
    That guy was a reckless idiot who at considerable cost to those around accomplished nothing worthwhile, indeed just the opposite.

    •  There were murders in 1913. (0+ / 0-)

      There were accidents.  It wasn't some halcyon time when everyone knew their neighbors and everyone was right in the head.  It was caveat emptor and we've moved past that with all kinds of laws against it.....disturbing the peace, zoning laws, consumer protection, protection of the mentally ill (you used to be able to just kill them).....all kinds of stuff to make it easier for all of us to co-exist on the planet and give some consideration to the least among us. I ain't goin' back.  It's part of why I'm a liberal :-)

      David Koch is Longshanks, and Occupy is the real Braveheart.
