    We, as Americans, wrested our freedom from the Brits (at the time, the most formidable military extant) by force of arms in the hands of the citizenry. This is a deep part of our mythos, and not to be discounted.

    Likewise, in this century, we have seen what happens to a defenseless and unarmed people, six million of them, when they become subject to the power of the State run amok.

    And, of course, The Civil War, also now genetically encoded.

    Context is everything, ain't it a bitch?
