Liberalism Still Uses Force

Even the most liberal free-loving good-intentioned earth-lovers end up trying to force others to conform to their lofty ideals. That's what poisons the well... force.

Eventually, force leads to oppression and injury and death.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an easy way out. Death and carnage still happens... so far. We'll see if this country continues to be able to work out it's differences in a non-violent manner. If so, then the answer is freedom, not an ideal. Idealism is like a drug; it makes people want to change everyone. That's fine, as long as force is not used.

But, then again, some sort of regulation is always needed. Law is needed. This is why life is a mystery... and very aggravating!
