Doctor Zero looks at the resources of the State, and finds they essentially amount to compulsion via force or the threat of same. I disagree with one portion of his argument:
The State is the only source of compulsion in an orderly society. It is proper for the State to have exclusive rights to the use of force. The purpose of a government is protection of its citizens’ rights, and every aspect of this lawful duty – from border security to law enforcement – requires compulsion.
My reading of the Second Amendment indicates that the Founders were wise enough not to allow the State such a monopoly. Of course, this may be why so many on the Left hate the Second Amendment.
In any case, beyond that point, I think Doc’s post is insightful, and worth your time.
