"Anything that's not nailed down belongs to me.

And anything I can pry loose is not nailed down."  

Of course governments can and do define and interpret "consent" in any way that suits themselves, and impose their version on the rest of us.   You drove your car through my turf on Sunday, so you consented to be carjacked!

Does that legal definition have any relevance to the actual issue of "consent" and "government" being antithetical concepts?  Is Rose making a valid point, or not?
