Tar and Feather Award

I’m not sure why this isn’t national news. I have been reading Locke’s 2nd Treatise of Government and, as far as I can see, the only reason any individual ever enters into any sort of social contract and thus surrenders some of his personal Liberty that he has from birth in his natural state is to secure for himself security from the consequences of being in a state of nature and thus subject to the law of nature. The purpose of any social contract between an individual and a group is to secure freedom from having to be his own judge and executioner and being without any mode of redress for grievances other than his own strong, right arm. How is this municipalities actions consistant with the goal of furthering individual Liberty? Who, exactly, is the aggrieved or injured party of this man’s actions?




“Michael Salman is serving a 60-day sentence in Maricopa County’s notorious Tent City jail for allegedly violating his probation by holding religious services on his property in violation of zoning and building codes. He was arrested July 9, after authorities charged the one-time gang member hosted Bible sessions for as many 80 people on his 4-acre property, which he tried to claim as a tax-exempt church.”
