Default OT: Political theory

Two quotes from my man Locke for any folks on the boards who might've slept through this class in school:



"There is only one thing which gathers people into seditious commotion, and that is oppression."

"The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom."

Locke... wasn't he a character in Ender's Game? That novel always puts me in a very... contemplative and introspective mood.

This thread seriously fails in contemplative seriousness... unless that's redundant.

I'm not sure if the quote I want is:

"Political power grows from the barrel of a gun." -Al Capone

Or:

"Now we see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being oppressed!" -Monty Python

The word that best describes this thread is "redundant", since there is no use pretending that it has anything to do with anything other than Sombre's ban. There is also no use having multiple threads on the subject.
