Montgomery County, Texas, January 31 – On June 28, 2018, a very prominent elected servant in Montgomery County, one of the most naturally beautiful places in Texas, just north of the City of Houston, wrote about one security issue and noted that “the cost of human lives is far greater than the cost of these modifications.” The elected servant is someone whom many individuals among the citizens, the highest level of government, regard as a gifted servant.
Government’s real purpose is to provide public safety and to provide national defense. There are important questions that we, as a society, must now face, because government is morally little more than a mutual protective association, which the citizens formed to share and thereby reduce the cost of protecting ourselves. See John Locke’s Second Treatise on Government.
