Why can't we just let it go? Why must we struggle with one another? The world is ours. All living things desire peace. Why is it that we humans can't find common ground? The police shouldn't do what they are told just for the sake of a job. To follow blindly is to give up one's self. Drop your hate and your weapons,as Tareen Khan (Not you?)

Odds are you are part of the problem too. I want freedom. True freedom. I want the state to not steal my income. I want the state to not be my nanny. Odds are you would protest me and call me names.
