Your post ignores the fact that everyone has WILLINGLY surrendered some of their individual rights for the betterment of society when they are a citizen.

Most intellectually mature people recognize the benefits they recieve from this agreement.



Ah, the "Social Contract" theory. I must confess, that one never made any sense to me. I am a citizen due to mere accident of birth and I don't recall "willingly" surrendering anything.
