In your Feb. 20 issue there was a gentleman that spoke of total freedom. I talk on this as well! “Total freedom nullifies social contract”

I agree that we give up total freedom, otherwise we could kill if we wanted, rob if we wanted and so on. However, that is why the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were created. They knew that, without those rules, the power would consume the leaders and we would get what we ran from. We are constantly perverting everything to make what the leaders want. He (the writer) says that requesting total freedom would nullify the social contract.

First off, as mentioned before, there are contracts in place that regulate their power, which is part of this contract he speaks of. Second, the government nullified the contract long ago when it dissented from by the people, for the people, and started protecting big business and corporate banks and stealing from the people that they are supposed to be a part of.

So his statement really holds no worthwhile content on that point. While I agree to part of his statement, he is off course.
