A hypothetical scenario

Mr Green: "Hello, I am a mass murderer, I have killed a great many people over the years, let me be in the government or I will kill more people"
Mr Blue: "No way, you've killed hundreds - including many perfectly innocent people, women, children"
Mr Green: "Ah yeah, sorry about that, in a general, non specific manner"
Mr Blue: "Well, the first step is admitting you made a mistake, I guess thats okay but you can't make laws"
Mr Green: "But I threw away all my knives that can be bought at any homeware store! and by the way, I now have the moral high ground now because you spied on me!"
Mr Blue: "Oh, ok then, make some laws"
Mr Orange: "I too am a murderous egomaniac and I demand that Mr Green not be allowed to make laws"
Mr Blue: "Shush, you can make laws too - Mr Green, what laws would you like first?"
Mr Green: "Well, my first law is that all the mass murderers I like be released"
Mr Blue: "and you Mr Orange?"
Mr Orange: "My first law is that Mr Green not be allowed to make laws"
Mr Blue: "..."

Apologies for any slight inaccuracies, I have trouble differentiating a bunch of frothing murderous zealots from their equally frothing and murderous "military" counterparts.

And yet, this is the way the process goes. This may even be the way the process *has* to go. It has happened countless times around the world and often times it has worked. The Republic, dodgy and all as its political setup may be, was formed like this and out of violence came democracy.

Yeah, I'm just despairing of humanity a bit right now, the general warm fuzzies that are going round because a bunch of psychos have agreed to get rid of their easily replacable weaponry is frankly sickening me to the core.
