This year in the country in which your humble blogger currently resides, the government enacted a new “police code”. The police have been given greater power to enforce certain politicians’ ideas of “a civil society”, yet in their rush to “make everyone behave” they have acted in an ingenuous (at best) manner. The matter I’ll address in today’s venting of virtual steam is the matter of “leash and muzzle laws”.
There are meme’s floating around the ‘net with the bold statement “Taxation Is Theft”. Many people have bought into this way of thinking, including many that claim to be Christian in orientation and thought. This idea is very popular with those of a Libertarian leaning and is accepted by many who otherwise claim to be Christian and claim only a libertarian inclination. (the difference between Libertarian and libertarian? – the difference between seeing pedophilia and some other behaviors as acceptable and recognizing that some behaviors are wrong and SHOULD be punished by government)
