When did you show that my claim about responsibilities was utter BS or that it cannot work? Didn't you just get done saying you refused to respond to that because I was begging the question? And sure, only you can decide what's best for you. Whatever. That would be fine and dandy if you lived in total and complete isolation from all other human beings. But you don't. You're part of a larger group, and as I said, you are not more important than the rest of the group. Finally, I don't think I ever said that violence was the basis for society. I did however say that I think conflict and violence are going to be inevitable for humans. I'm not sure what makes you think otherwise, but if you want to stop talking about the cop thing and talk about that instead, go for it. Not promising I'll be interested enough to indulge you though. What does that logic book you keep mentioning say about ad hominem attacks? Why?
