If there can't be a right to an education, then communities can't create one.

Communities can allow every child in the community to go to their schools by common agreement. In fact, it's a privilege.

What's to figure out?  Just stop stealing the taxes and stop giving the money to public schools.
Swell, what are you waiting for?

What's your point?

I'd prefer to have every child in the community I live in offered a basic education whether their parents can afford it or not.

Then offer it.  Get a bunch of like-minded people to pitch in if you can’t afford to pay for them all.  If educated children are such a wonderful benefit to the community, you should have no problem convincing people to pay for it without all the firearms.

Why do you say things like “common agreement” which is false instead of saying, “majority rules,” which is what you really mean?

If you’re embarrassed that you believe rule by majority when it comes to taxes, you should re-think that embarrassing position.

People are convinced it's worth paying for, but they don't like outsiders telling them what they have to pay for, especially when it involves teaching their children subversive and dangerous nonsense.

Other than illegitimate state and federal control, we have that here already.

Your lack of the ability to understand gets boring. Angry

It is commonly agreed that in certain specific situations, the majority position should take precedence.

Voting can be useful, but it doesn't have to be tyrannical. Avoid democracy and you'll be better off in the long run.

I'm reminded of a conversation I had with a friend about pride as a sin.

We agreed about it, and that has often been a comfort to me.

What annoys you is that I do understand. 

That above statement has zero meaning other than "the majority agrees that the majority can take money from the minority because majority rules."

That is laughable since democracy is your one and only justification for one group of people having the right to take wealth from another.  The fact that you add a layer between the voters and the victims of the voters doesn't change that, especially since you have so many times insisted that if the representatives of the voters don't do what the voters want, the voters will elect representatives who do. 

So, it is simply voters voting themselves wealth from the treasury, just as the founders warned would end the Republic.

I thought you said that if the people don't like what their representatives do, they can simply vote in new representatives.  Now you say the representatives use force on the voters? 

What?
