are scared sh@itless when faced with the precept of pure, unbridled Liberty,

FWIW, prue unbridled liberty is called anarchy, which has never really worked out well through out history :-).

it's about the simple question of WHO owns your body.....you or government?

There's a third choice there, if one is willing to accept it. Of course, accepting that, one is governed by ideas and mores that go contrary to "pure, unbridled liberty", and actually hold one to a set of standards that one couldn't possibly measure up to, without a little help...well, OK, a whole lot of help.

That doesn't change your proposition, it just adds an extra layer of complexity.

No, anarchy is not Liberty. In anarchy, might makes right. In Liberty, the right to swing my fist ends at your nose.

LOL! Trying to create your own definition of Liberty is not a third choice

A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.

LOL! There is really nothing complex about it.

Tell us, ansell, what do you think the source is for all legitimate power of government?
