visitation of violence - 21st
"The most important element of a free society,
where individual rights are held in the highest esteem, is the rejection of the
initiation of violence. All initiation of force is a violation of someone
else's rights, whether initiated by an individual or the state, for the benefit
of an individual or group of individuals, even if it's supposed to be for the
benefit of another individual or group of individuals. Legitimate use of
violence can only be that which is required in self-defense."
Congressman Ron Paul
