As Bruno Leoni wrote in his book, "The Freedom and the Law", not all
laws are legit. If the IRI have a law that order the killing of all
people that disagree with the Supreme Leader, this make not it right to
kill people only because they disagree with the Supreme Leader.

Now, we know that legitimacy could come from two things: power and
consent. What appear from the news, photos, videos and testimonies that
come from Iran is consent is no more and only power govern Iran now.

Would you argue the same if the government of Iran axed transhumanists
in the same way it axe this people?
