None of us are immune from the impulse to shoot someone in the name of advancing the Brotherhood of Man.

If conservative civility proves just a veneer under which nativist passions seethe the same can be said for the impulses of the Left.
There's an commissar lurking behind many a mild mannered academic. For every bigot there's a commissar, In the end people just go and shoot without the niceties for the convenience. By and by we will miss civilization which is what holds barbarism and our worse natures in check. The entire apparatus of civilization is geared towards moderating raw passions it must control. The purpose of churches, custom, culture, manners and law is to restrain the Beast, because the Beast needs restraining. Unfortunately we are a juncture where restraint may have just left town. Not only have we, in our misguided wisdom, dismantled morality, civility and even law, but on both sides of the aisle the watchword is: power by any means necessary.

Well, from what I've seen, the lawless wild wild west wasn't all that bad. (Sources: Republic Pictures, Monogram Pictures, PRC mostly)

The so called wild west was made up of mostly Civil War vets who moved to get away from the BS of the politics. People with evil on their mind didn't last long and no one questioned the statement, "He needed killin'." Who was around to ask it anyway?
