    I don't want to go too far and say that we are technically allowed to overthrow the government, but isn't it in the constitution that if the government fails to protect our three natural rights, then man should (or can) overthrow the gubment?

    If that were true, shouldn't the government be long gone by now?

    The 3 natural rights have been spat and shat on.

    Life: The government takes the lives of people by sometime involuntarily sending people to war.
    Liberty: We have been denied our liberty just by having cops.
    Estate: People have been stripped of their lands plenty o' times.

    Maybe i'm just misunderstanding the Constitution, but my teacher and i had a discussion which led to John Locke's ideas being in the Constitution.

    And Another Thing.
    Why are anarchists considered freaks? Why is the idea of wanting a free society, not having any topical hierarchy just weird to people.
    In class my teacher asked a question, and that was (paraphrasing..)
    "What would you call a group of people that are overthrowing the government?"

    Then a girl answered "Freaks of nature"

    To which my teacher answered "Correct..just kidding."
    She was kidding, but why would she call anarchist/revolutionaries freaks?

    Is it because of the image we give ourselves? or are they brainwashed by false promises?
