An Association

Say your neighborhood formed an association and you joined it with the association having the delegated power to negotiate snow plowing and trash pick up.
The person elected set a house in a neighboring association on fire and declared that no persons from that association could travel through yours.
He also agreed to use his pal for snow plowing for 5 times the going rate.
Upset at these actions, which were never within the powers that you agreed to give the elected leader, you decide to leave.
The next morning, you find a note on your door stating that you have no right to break from the association and leave. All of a sudden gunshots ring out. Your neighbors are shooting at you. They hit your child and kill your wife and then the set fire to your garage.
You cry out that you give up and that you’ll come back to the association. They stop shooting but patrol your yard armed to the teeth.
You are told that you must apply to be admitted to the association and that there will be certain penalties that will apply only to you.
You ask, why do I have to apply for admittance when you killed my wife and child because I had no right to leave?
……………
Any questions Johnny Reb? Ridiculous ain’t it?
I didn’t even tell you about the marble statue built with your money in honor of that association leader.
