  •  The real problem (12+ / 0-)

    is governments assuming the right to kill people.  That basic premise needs to be questioned first.  It creates a vicious cycle of death.
    If people can kill people when acting collectively, how is individual action different?  Does it not follow logically that people can kill people too then?  The powers of government are founded in the rights of individuals to act collectively, not in a superordinate legal realm bestowing special rights on the collective.  Doesn't the very fact that the government kills people lead to the expectation that there will be people at war with the government to protect themselves and their families?  Killing begets more killing.  This is why we have rule of law!
