http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_contract
In political philosophy the social contract or political contractis a theory or model, originating during the Age of Enlightenment, that typically addresses the questions of the origin of society and the legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual.[1] Social contract arguments typically posit that individuals have consented, either explicitly or tacitly, to surrender some of their freedoms and submit to the authority of the ruler or magistrate (or to the decision of a majority), in exchange for protection of their remaining rights. The question of the relation between natural and legal rights, therefore, is often an aspect of social contract theory.
I posted this for him - see top post on this page where he replied to me and ignored my question about this exact same paragraph.

It might be too abstract for him to consider.

Oh I see why now.

Some years ago I was in Denver and Aurora, the two cities were/are very close to each other, only 20-30 minutes by car so I thought Aurora was in the county of Denver.

I know, I stole it from your post

ATF would benefit to understand that his outlook is not only nothing new, but it has been developed into greater levels of sophistication by previous social philosophers - many of them, such as Hobbes, acknowledged as starchly conservative.

Speed on a local road. That will be the proof.

Someones philosophy is as meaningful and holds as much force as a fart in church.

I am asking for facts that the constitution and code are applicable.
You make a whole lot of sense, well your honor we have this philosopher and he was a conservative and that is a fact that we are relying on to charge voluntarist with this code violation.

You're asking the wrong person.

I've told you, I'm much more of pragmatist than an idealist.

I know what the rules are and how to stay out of jail.

Not sure what your point is. Do you?5008

Yes, social philosophy is all about ideas (and opinions).

Much like your current obsession about.....what was it again?:

"How do you know our state constitution applies to us?"

Is this you central question here?

How did you come across this major issue of the day?

Are you sure there isn't anything else more important happening in the world?

You are imposing your own requirements on your discourse.

To the rest of us, that is about meaningful as a fart in church.

Actually you do. You have consented to be a part of this society. Which enables you opportunities such as communicating on the internet which requires consent.

To drill the idea more deeply, note the word(s) INTER NET

<quoted text>
Yes I would and anything else you recommend. I am very adventurous when it comes to trying different cuisines.
<quoted text>
No alcohol at all?
HughBe--- Our local flesh is NOT SWEET it is closer to being salt than sweet.

Former--Clearly there I was referring to the milo.

HughBe--- I prefer my understanding.
Besides how sweet Milo is is a function of what type of milk and how much sugar,is added. Put it this way, Milo mixed with unsweetened cow's milk is not sweet and so the matter of sweet tooth would not arise.

HughBe --Would you be interested in EATING our salt FISH?

Former--Yes I would and anything else you recommend.

HughBe--- The sign of a very wise man.

Former--- I am very ADVENTUROUS when it comes to trying different cuisines.

HughBe--- Indeed our cuisine is truly a memorable adventure into SPACE and in particular black HOLES.

Former--Was that a yes or no about the Red Strip beer?

HughBe-- I am not a consumer of beer

Former--No alcohol at all?

HughBe--- wine and rarely a pinch of rum in a drink.

Yes! This is the piece he doesn't get.

Simply by agreeing to live in this society, he is taking part in the contract, as I stated...

"If you live in the USA, you must comply with the rights, privileges and responsibilities of being a US citizen.
America: Love it leave it."

Of course, the last line, as a bumper sticker from the 60s and is somewhat tongue in cheek.(I actually had that bumper sticker on my locker and the principal took it off! Free speech!)

I asked ATF where he would rather live and he never responded.
