Police , at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community Welfare and existence.
Collectivists would have you believe that individualism is merely another word for selfishness, because individualists oppose Welfare and other forms of coercive redistribution of wealth, but just the opposite is true.

My religion is truth, love and service to God and humanity. Every religion that has come into the world has brought the message of love and brotherhood.

Terms like " liberty" and "individual freedom" invoked by generations of Americans who battled to widen the 1787 promise to "promote the general Welfare" have been perverted to create a government primarily dedicated to the state and the political class that runs it.

Only a miracle or a disaster could restore it.William S. Burroughs

The only justifiable stopping place for for the expansion of altruism is the point at which all whose Welfare can be affected by our actions are included within the circle of altruism.
