    "This is not a world in which one can turn the other cheek. Doing so does not avoid violence, but rather encourages it. The bad guys threaten, but they do not seem to want to get hurt. They should be taught that their presumed victim is more dangerous than they are. This is not a matter of weapons, but of will."

    God bless representative government and may it extend to all of the captives in the rest of the world. Happy holiday!

    Isn't it strange that the western countries always try to involve the people in government, at least since the magna carta. This in an age when Chinese government is stomping out all vestiges of any sort of participation in government by the peasants in Hong Cong.

    Interesting read. THANKS!
