And that is perhaps the epitome of reason. Through negotiation we arrive at a mutually beneficial arrangement where you perform some task for me and I provide you with money. No force needed as long as each fulfills their part of the bargain.

Robert Heinlein summed up the whole article with: “An armed society is a polite society”.
