Reader comments about this quote:
A good-humored stomach is a benefit in most instances of enduring rough treatment (but, it could mis-direct the mind and senses). Extreme long / short term rough treatment, such as compelled compliance, victimless crimes, government licenses, larceny with impunity (2nd plank of the communist manifesto, police state confiscations, funny money, etc.) and enforcements contrary to individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty and the laws of nature and of nature's God are each and everyone crimes against humanity and a demonic violation of each sentient being.
