Armed Revolution

A while back, I posted a link to a piece by Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.

He responsed, saying that he was not advocate killing cops.  Today he posted a short article, which recalls this exchange and which includes a link to an article he wrote in 1995.

For the record, I agree with everything he said in his 1995 piece.  The essence is:

Like it or not, the government we have now is the government that most citizens at least thought they wanted.

This is really the crux of it.  You can’t rebel against the government without rebelling against the general populace.

There is a lot more good stuff here, but I can’t copy and paste from the scan of the old newsprint so I am not going to type it all in.

Again, Mr. Reynolds, if you’re reading this, I apologize for mis-reading your blog entry.
