In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold.

Do you need laws to know not to steal? No, you just need to know there's a good chance that the guy in there very well may have a shotgun. Do you need laws to know not to murder? No, you just need to know that if you do, some of that guys friends will come and kill you back.
So what don't I understand?

Does that really sound like a society that with great potential for success? If all the governments in the world fell, chaos would indeed ensue. From that kind of chaos, millions would die. From that kind of chaos a territorial system of tribes would emerge, and from them a system of states. It all comes back around.
