Yes, KeepIt, you go! The government should never, ever use force, violence, coercion or terror. We need to dismantle the military, for starters. We need to open the borders and not coercively challenge any immigrant from entering. If foreign forces of any kind threaten our country or our people, we should just learn to communicate with them better and educate them in the ways of peace. Government forces should never pursue criminals using force, violence or coercion just because, as you so eloquently put it, that makes us all bullies and thugs. I'm with you 100%.
