Jesus, Gandhi, and others are examples of the above. Even the States united founders, though resorting to violent altercation, retained a Respect for the nobility of life in face of intolerable Tyranny. Now that Tyranny has far exceeded earlier defined limits of intolerable and, any / all defining hope of liberty within the currently occupying statist theocracy, Respect remains a constant trait of the at heart and mind freeman.
