Rebellion and dissent has its place in society so yes I do speak for god.:lol:
you sit in judgement
saying that social sanction and legality is not enough
but by what authority do you decree such ?
are you speaking for god ?
society trumps the individual
and defines what is right or wrong across time and space,
not just one mortal man.
and my statement is not mere philosophical musing
but the hard reality of the situation,
as the courts and the prisons attest.
society makes the rules
and sanctions judicial punishments including death.
our species has already lived in a world
where every man did what was right in his own eyes
and we turned our back on that kind of social organisation
when we invented civilization and began writing codes of law
that over-ruled the individual and imposed standards for everyone.
the new rule was one law, one gun-
only the government has the right to kill under our system.
someone who usurps that authority is a murderer,
not a 'freedom fighter'.
"you sit in judgement saying that social santion and legality is not enough"
"but ignore the stoning to death of women accused of adultery"
And so apparently do you.
Society's interests trump those of government.
This last statement is to be taken in itself.
