Thanks. I'm for purely voluntary interaction, but I wasn't always. Took me a while to see how it's a peaceful, adequate answer to the problem.You Perfectly hit the nail on the head. It sums it up.
Governments govern, they do not "RULE", they have as much power as given to them, to be public servants, not overlords, by the people.
Anything else is overreaching. I do not get why ANTIsmokers do not get this, but I am grateful for nonsmokers, who understand the principal and come here to have a conversation, not a stuck up snarky reply.
p.s. I'm secretly hoping some holes in my world view will come to light. I'd rather get rid of any lingering bad ideas I have. So far it - the notion of a legal system set up in defense of purely voluntary interaction - seems to be holding up but I welcome any critique. Vigorous debate, it should be remembered, is in itself a peaceful act.
