First, I would like to thank all of you who come here, read and comment.
Some of the comment-threads that develop are very interesting and I usually not just enjoy them, but I also learn from them. A lot. Thank you.
The comments on my recent post ‘Are Canadian cops following illegal orders?’ are a good example of the comments I mean. CodeSlinger even went out and researched the laws, and, using specific references answered that in one of the instances I raised, the cops were indeed upholding the laws, and acting correctly.
Then, Lieutenant Calculus and CodeSlinger got into an excellent discussion on the nature and origin of human rights. Now, I know I have posted this video before, but, I think it is relevant to this thread and I like it, and this is an excellent excuse to re-post it.
From STOPandLOOK, here is ‘The Nature and Origin of Human Rights’:
(The video is part 1 of a series. Here are part 2 – ‘Group Supremacy‘, part 3 – ‘Coercion vs Freedom’, part 4 – Equality and Inequality under law and part 5 – ‘Proper Role of Government’ … That last part is having trouble with the audio, therefore I recommend two longer videos which contain all that ‘part 5’ does, but in greater detail: ‘The Truth About Big Government part 1’ and ‘The Truth About Big Government part 2’. )
While I have mentioned only CodeSlinger and Lieutenant Calculus by name here – and I do thank them for their comments, this is because I was responding to their specific comment thread and it does not mean I do not appreciate all the other most excellent comments from each and every one of you. I do! And, I thank you all!
