"Nah, I'm not persuaded that this is a valid definition. At best, it is incomplete"
Hey lets talk about MANIPULATIVE WRITING:
"and then violently punish those who disobey them. People doing business as "government" do."
So when the government writes me out a parking ticket, they will violently punish me if I don't pay it?
Hey GUESS WHAT??? There is ALWAYS going to be a guy with the biggest stick and he is ALWAYS going to be in charge. The question is, does the guy with the biggest stick have absolute power or not? Government is the only way to distribute power AWAY from the guy with the biggest stick.
"so long as they are not manipulations or insults"
You've insulted ME by using HYPERBOLE in your response!
