      What does the possession of a guns do to the soul of the possessor? In
      the case of the Swiss (who do military service - & only those who do
      hold weapons) is seems to add to their self-possession (nationally not
      always individually). The context seems important there. Canadians too
      seem (with a few rare exceptions able to manage the ownership of
      rifles - primarily for hunting). As for Iraq -

      The "free people of Iraq" as an example to all those who feel that free
      access to machines made for the sole purpose of killing might not be a
      good idea? Really, Matthew?

      And if guns should be available to all free people, why not durgs?
      After all a completely doped population have no reason to worry about
      invasion, or anything else...Where does the abortion issue fit in with
      a perspective that seems to see readines to maim or kill others as a
      major contribution "free" societies?

      Guns, no guns? - all this seems more a matter of simple commonsense -
      the best & only basis for Anthroposophy - than spiritual science.
