I was amused to see this aside from the Obama official Jeff blogged about earlier: “Force can mean physical force, but can also mean the force of the political process.”

The “force of the political process” ultimately rests on physical force, in the form of men with guns and badges. The idea that you can expropriate people’s property non-coercively, even as part of a democratic process, is laughable. It may not be the statists’ fatal conceit, but it is definitely one of their conceits.
