quote of the day

"I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them."

-Robert Heinlein, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

Note: That only works if you're already in jail.

Amen to that. The words by which I live.

Bravo! More libertarians need to realize they are already free. We are only imprisoned if we believe ourselves imprisoned. Incidentally, you might be interested in the article, "Libertarian Pledge of Nonviolence."

Someone around me is always telling me I am breaking the law, no matter what I am doing (hint; the wife). I live by those words you quoted. Hell, I'll run a red light if I think I can get away with it. Some of these redlights out here in the unincorperated areas should be kept on caution, especially at night when there's no or very little traffic. Some of the smaller town and cities do this in the area.

"The Moon is a Harsh Mistres" was a great book. Heinlein was an interesting man, but he didn't particularly beleive in non violence.
