Response to demwing (Original post)

1. Shouldn't the right to live also mean

no executions by the state, and far stronger restrictions on the use of lethal force by law enforcement, with an automatic violation of such rights being levied EVERY TIME police (or corrections officers) kill someone, whether 'justified' or not? Also no assassinations of either citizens or non-citizens, and far more stringent limits upon the justification for military use of lethal force overseas. Ie, no more 'war for oil' or to improve the fortunes of war profiteers, but instead ONLY for the purposes of ending existing violence that is resulting in deaths overseas?
