I think Heinlein agrees with you. :-)

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have 
to back up his acts with his life.

He might differ a little from you here.

A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.

On a completely different subject, I love this quote from A Fish Called 

Otto: Don't call me stupid.
Wendy: Why on earth not?
Otto: Oh, you English are *so* superior, aren't you? Well, would you 
like to know what you'd be without us, the good ol' U.S. of A. to 
protect you? I'll tell you. The smallest fucking province in the Russian 
Empire, that's what! So don't call me stupid, lady. Just thank me.
Wendy: Well, *thank* you for popping in and protecting us.
Otto: If it wasn't for us, you'd all be speaking *German!* Singing 
"Deutschland, Deutschland über alles..."

Any I like this one too...it's going in my quote file.


p.s. I'm still getting over that there's another OC-ite on the list!
