“One in three Americans claim that ‘violence against government can be justified,’ The Washington Post warned last weekend. … Here’s the precise question: Do you think it is ever justified for citizens to take violent action against the government, or is it never justified? ‘Never’ is a very extreme term. How can anyone — much less the 62 percent majority in this poll — conclude such political violence could ‘never’ be warranted? Our country was born in a revolution which declared ‘That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government.'” (01/06/22)
