A Government’s ONLY job is to protect the individual rights of its citizens.
Ultimately, the only thing that can prevent the use of force is the threat or use of greater use of force. The people are the ultimate check on government. Only an armed population has the ability to overthrow a tyrannical government. In Australia, we are witnessing the results of a government that doesn’t respect individual rights and has disarmed the people. There is no longer a balance of power to check that tyranny and Australians are being enslaved.
The same is happening in Canada.
