Liberty - The Defense Wins

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  They say that the best offense is a good defense.  Then there is the line of thinking that the best offense is a great offense.  When it comes to sports I support having a great defense, but I sit in awe of great offenses.

With that being said, I think when it comes to national defense, community defense, state defense anything goes. It's always better to hunt, then to wait.  It is better to hunt then go after something after it happens. 

So am I against camera's everywhere? No, not really. There is obviously good that can come out of that. I am though against camera's being used to prosecute you if might be doing something like not turning with your blinkers on. I am against cameras being used to ticket speeders. I am against cameras being used on your own private property.  Yes, the whole civil liberties argument, I side on the side of liberty.  However, and this is not an exception, I believe defense of liberty is key. 

If you are to have a country, a state, a city, it is ok to pay for the defense of those liberties.  Evil exists, and having cameras can squelch that to some degree. It doesn't eradicate it. It helps it. So if money used for stupid social programs could be used for defense, then the world, at least the rational world would be a little more safer.  Would you pay for safety? 

As a minarchist, that's what I would pay for. DEFENSE.

    "... community defense, state defense anything goes."
    Really? You like people watching everything you do, whether or not you're doing anything wrong? You TRUST the liars, thieves, and megalomaniacs in government to NOT MISUSE this? What the fk are you smoking? And HOW are you gonna keep anyone from using a camera on your property? Standing on the sidewalk or street is legal; they aren't yours.
    You want defense then enforce the myriad of laws (many ridiculous and infringing on your privacy/civil rights) and make the penalties harsh. Make murder universally punishable by death, in an expedited time frame. No work in prison, no eat; do something useful even if it's only cleaning the streets. But surveillance everywhere? No, not unless you want me to follow you with a camera 24/7.

    And "better to hunt"? That is called OFFENSE, not defense. It's an active process.
