We must discard our belief that sovereignty, reciprocity, monarchies, houses, and an independent jury cannot be improved upon. The uncomfortable truth is that either the militia owns the state, the military owns the state, or the bureaucracy owns the state, or the church(academy) owns the state. Or the financial sector owns the state. The only equality of intersets in that list is the MILITIA.
Western civilization begins and ends with the militia. This is how you distinguish between a conservative and a libertarian. Those who fight, and those who preach.
