Physical force and the use of weapons should
*always* be a last resort, whether on a global
scale or a local one, but there will always be
situations where this response is necessary.

Just to reinforce this point with some

Every day, I go around in my democracy being
forced to do what I do not want to do. I do not
want to stop at traffic lights and stop signs. I
do not want to pay for my groceries. I do not
want to go to work and be productive; I want
them to pay me for sitting at home and
working on my hobbies.

But I do all these things because that's the
way my democratic republic works. I obey its
laws because I know it's what makes the
system work for everybody. Those who don't
are called "criminals."
