Leviathan blatantly asserts its ownership over the serfs within its geographical boundaries. But it also astoundingly assumes Nature itself belongs to the State. How else to explain the last sentences in this story about a “suspected cougar, or mountain lion” that “has been photographed in southern Minnesota“?–
In 2011, a man shot and killed one that was on private property near horses. However, cougars are protected in Minnesota, and killing one is only justified if one is facing imminent harm. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and an additional $1,000 in restitution to the state.
As TK, who kindly forwarded me this story, observed, “Restitution to the state? For #%$&! what?!”
Too bad Boobus Americanus doesn’t ask that question every time the thieves plunge their hands into his pockets. If he did, we’d have a revolution on our hands.9:56 am on September 25, 2017
