"One thing that really bothers me are those libertarians who make excuses for the inexcusable. Those who 'super-love' the enforcers (and to a lesser degree, any government tool). Maybe a loved one is a cop or in the military, or for some other reason a strong feeling of devotion is experienced toward these enforcers and hired killers. Maybe they are under the belief that enforcers are 'a vital necessity' to keep predators from hurting innocent people. Sure, it's a delusion, but it can seem very 'reasonable' to them." (11/14/12)
