There are enough guns and ticked off combat veterans in the U.S. to stop the socialists in the gov from total takeover.
It scares the socialist arm of the U.S. gov. and that is why they are trying to disarm law abiding Americans when criminals are committing the gun violence.
Their fear is also why you are seeing all of these "No you really don't have the right to this or that" commentaries by leftists.

With the HOLY GRAIL of rights born unto God, Free Speech, easily proven that in totality it cannot truly exist (bigger gun), why not just give in to Globalism and let's run this whole planet like an Ant Farm? I'm talking about hive think and absolutely maximum efficiency. You think we dominate this planet right now? Imagine if we worked as singularly as ants or bees? We'd be talking a solar system worth of domination.

Okay, I don't know why I chose this thread specifically to ask this question. I could've chosen a million others, I suppose. Perhaps it has something to do with the idea of free speech I read over HERE.
Free speech does not exist. It is allowed by the superior. You always have a superior. Except that ONE guy, I gather.
I know that's tough to hear, but it hasnt, won't and can never be a false statement.
Sure, someone might not be around to stop you while you bellow to the valley a great thought. I get it, there are times when it is not applicable. That doesn't make my statement false.
Someone else can take that free speech away at anytime, provided they do it by right of conquest.
ex. Someone could tie someone up and put them on display in a town centre, but the next chain happens when the police come. And thus power is transferred. You yourself can never defend your free speech fully. YOU ARE DEPENDENT ON OTHERS TO PROVIDE IT.
Today, the State is the ultimate authority on free speech. Don't believe me? Who has the authority to put you in prison? Not your neighbor. Not you.
So, clearly it's a magickal thing we CHOOSE as a society to live this way. It's really man's crowning achievement, society. I know, other animals have societies. Sure they do. But nothing as complex as ours. Nothing so capable of world domination in such a short time span can match man.
Anyways, I haven't even gotten to the question yet. I applaud you for sticking with me, but that's my context for the question.

So, one last time for the tl;dr kids:
Whith free speech unable to be 100% defended by the self, defeating the greatest of all rights, proving a losing battle, why not just accept globalism on a maximized scale and take benefit of enormous potential inherent in the efficiency?
