Hi, I heard this was the no-politics list?

I embrace a social contract that says "I'll avoid harming you, your 
family or your property, if you'll do the same for me."

I reject a purported social contract that says "One of the parties 
hereto can change the terms at will (and you're not that one)."

Seems to me, though, that the kind of contract most fit for providing 
fire prevention and the like is neither of these.
