"An armed society is a polite society..."
What an idealistic crock of shit. One of the most mannered and civilized and well-armed (and I mean personal weapons) societies there has ever been had to come up with the Code Duello to manage the behavior of men who were slaughtering each other in the thousands over real or imagined slights.
Too many people live their lives in a dreamland of what they wish it could be, or a fantasy of what it once was, rather than how it really is. I heard two people at 3am the other morning screeching to four cops and a German Shepherd about their 'rights'.
A lot of heartache could be prevented if people would just open their eyes, look around, see the way things really are, accept it, and plan accordingly.
There are no more windmills...
