    Hey mods, I think this is relevant to civil rights, but if you must move it to the Round Table. I have become a senior member, so I can contribute there too.

    Look below to see my new signature line. I am just a dumb a$$ed common person, so I may have grammatical errors and such, but I would welcome comments as to what flaws, if any, I have in my new personal definition of "Government"

    Of course, you all know that I am entitled to my opinion, but I will most definitely value your contributions.

    To make a distinction between organizations in a libertarian society which provide services that governments today provide, one's definition of government should include that

    Yep.

    Cropcircle,

    It's as if you've described a giraffe (long neck, spots, vegitarian, lives in Africa) and insisted that you've described all animals.

    Even though the Declaration of Indpendence states this, I don't see this happening too much in our country!

    a decent respect to the opinions of mankind
    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.
    Juat a thought, VB
