There's no justification for a police state

Most people seem to want a police state-- at least when it comes to imposing or forbidding things they want to mandate or prohibit.

Not me.

There are things I deeply dislike, but I would rather ridicule them or call them out than give politicized goons the power to do anything, one way or another, about them.

You have a right to ridicule the ridiculous and you have the right to speak the truth to those who deny it. Those rights are as important as the right to use force against anyone who is violating you or someone else.

You don't have the right to advocate, pass, or enforce legislation that is propped up with stolen money and depends on a police state. You may try to make the case that you are only using this political violence in defense, but you don't want to admit this is like using a nuclear weapon on a village to get a couple of bad guys among the others. Political violence can't be aimed precisely enough to avoid harming more innocents than bad guys. This is true in every case, even if well-intentioned. Even if you'd have the right to hunt down and kill the bad guy to stop him from continuing to do what he's doing.

Trying to justify a political response is justifying a police state which will eventually target you, or destroy you as "collateral damage". 

No police states, or police state tactics, ever!

If you want to support what I do, you will. If not, you won't.
Thank you.
