I read a very good op/ed from the Richmond Times Dispatch website yesterday. It was written by Mr. Barton Hinkle. The piece explores the idea about where our obligations to the government come from. It was very thought provoking, and extremely well written, especially given the depth of the topics the author touches.
But as I read through the piece, I realized that Mr. Hinkle was missing an important truth that, once considered, should alter his entire hypothesis.
