"I suppose if willl does not want to accept the validity of the words legal criminal or legal crime, but still wants to resist those who embody those words, well then, maybe that is still a Friend in Liberty; and maybe the light bulb will turn on."
"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past"

Then there are the people who are exemplified by Will.
If I can communicate to someone, you perhaps, I can say that there is a passage in the Bible warning of a wrong, or sin, whereby a person emulates or is jealous of, a solider who is good at killing.
I read something like that in your very welcome Proverbs Topic on this Forum (a Topic that is turning out to be a best seller).
War, as unfortunate as it is, is at least instructive.
Those who profit from war learn what war instructs.
Those who die merely die, and they are not alive to warn anyone - no more.
I thought about that and I do not think that I am jealous of John Boyd, or Werner Molders, Gabby Gabresky, or Robert Shaw. I do have a very high level of interest in Air Combat, so those people, so listed, are of a very high interest to me, and they offer some very important warnings.
Not the least warning is for those who may want to listen to this warning is for the listener to be more powerful, if at all possible, than those other people who WILL kill them for fun and profit.
Do not allow your life to be ending by other people if the only reason for your death is for other people to have fun at your expense. Please?
Who is going to have fun at your expense, as you die horribly?
You can't see Will, and people like him, or her, pushing children ahead of him, or her, in the line that goes to the meat grinder, as these types of people choose, by their power of will, to move less powerful people ahead of them in the same line?
That is what I see.
There are many other people on this planet.
There are many other people on this planet, look in the mirror, who refuse, absolutely refuse, to allow anyone else (with one exception) to pay the costs of their mistakes INVOLUNTARILY.
Does that make any sense?
