Progressivism’s Violent World

Today, we live in a world of the progressives’ creation, somewhere halfway between socialism and liberty. It is a volatile mixture. It is a world increasingly ruled by force; force wielded by a powerfully armed government. Whether it is the force of the income tax, the force of compulsory education, the force of regulation, or the force of law enforcement the effects are clear to all willing to see: a society becoming sicker and more aggressive.

Late night smoker harassed by Cop for ID outside his residence

I was outside my residence late at night having a cigarette when a police officer decided to harass me for my I.D. He drove around the corner and saw me putting my cigarette out and throwing it in the dumpster. He got out of his squad car and asked me what I was doing. I said hi and told him my first name, then I explained that I live here in the apartment complex and that I usually stay up late and was just out having a smoke. He asked if I had ID and I told him I didn't have any on me because I don't take my wallet out with me when I'm home just to go have a smoke.
