4. I think it's been well established that if you walk around armed, you'll always be safe.

8. Yeah, like the sniper who was shot and killed

while at a shooting range. He was safe. Now he's dead.

7. Something to think about, huh?

If I were to be serious, I'd say the dinstinction lies in who's being targeted and who's doing the targeting. The Leviathan kills; a man can only murder. The Leviathan taxes, a man can only extort. The Leviathan makes order by its very nature; a free man either can comply with the Leviathan or he becomes an agent of chaos.
