Social Contract

This little tidbit from Ace of Spades HQ has been making the rounds:

“The social contract exists so that everyone doesn’t have to squat in the dust holding a spear to protect his woman and his meat all day every day. It does not exist so that the government can take your spear, your meat, and your woman because it knows better what to do with them.”

Those two sentences contain more wisdom than the entire Flea Party from every city combined.  I'd like to add one more sentence - when the social contract begins to infringe on me more than necessary, I have the right to tear that social contract into small pieces and flush it down the toilet.

A social contract is not slavery, and when it turns into slavery, it's time is done.
