Power is not taken, it is given (through laws, manipulation, or inaction). A tyrant has no more right to claim a throne than an ordinary citizen.Freemason said:The tyrant wanted the power and took it. Was that wrong? Would it still be wrong if the tyrant took the power from a tyrant like Ivan the Terrible?
With guns, you manipulate the people into obeying your every whim (because they don't want to die). They give up power to save their lives.Freemason said:Power doesn't come from laws or manipulation or inaction. Power has always been and always will be in the hands of the one with the most guns. With guns you can sieze power. Without guns you get shot. Hitler knew that very well.
