The bigger the government, the greater the opportunity to seek revenge by state action. This has been demonstrated throughout history, and now current events are teaching the same lesson.
The latest example involves 52-year-old California businessman Salvatore Bevivino, who was detained after a Virgin America flight in April, 2013 for, he reports, refusing to flush a toilet and arguing with a stewardess over a soda. Writes The Smoking Gun:
A flight attendant told cops that Bevivino argued with her over the ordering of a soda via a computer touchscreen. "My time is precious, you are here to serve me," Bevivno [sic] said, according to the flight attendant.
Following the soda confrontation, the flight attendant told police, Bevivino "went to the restroom, came back out with a smile on his face and began using profanities." When the flight attendant passed by the lavatory, she "saw that Bevivino left the door open and did not flush the toilet."
