Prof Arkes, I don't disagree with the basic principle, but it's not enough just to say, "Totalitarian regimes are wrong, so don't let the State enslave you". That's like saying, "Don't get sick". The important question is, when do you know it's going to become enslavement? When is the proper time to resist with force?"...... But when you're naked and seventy pounds below your healthy weight, it's too late. You have no chance. On the other hand, no one would support you if you started an armed rebellion because the government posts speed limits on open roads and arrests people for speeding. So when is it not too late, but also not too early? -- Henry Bowman in Unintended Consequences by John Ross, Page 337
