Me: Interaction between people should be voluntary.
Them: Yeah, but that’s utopian, there will always be violent people. So we need systems for defense.

Just dreamed my childhood friends came to visit me (no real sense of community anymore). I also was trying to drive a car from the back seat (no sense of control in life), the doors were opening and closing (no security), and I absentmindedly had opened a beer (legal criminal).
