I don't think it's reaching at all. They're offering the same service to all persons: Police protection if you can solve a Rubik's cube . . .


The conditional, " . . .if you can . . ." is not a service. It is a test, concocted by the police, to determine who gets service (police protection).

Give it up, Oppo.  A test contrived by the grantor is not analogous to natural differences among the grantees. Your argument is frivolous and ridiculous.

Police protection if you can use a telephone. Police protection if you don't live in a bad neighbourhood.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Under your plan lizard, people in bad neighborhoods without telephones will still have to solve Rubik's cube first, otherwise the police will never come.

Have you had a vacation lately? The Carolina coast is often lovely this time of year...
