Trying to understand the "monstrosity" I found it practical to keep in mind:

The basic right of freedom after speech does not give one
the right to speak one's mind in anyone's living room;
even after an invitation one can be shown the door at any time,
for any reason or none.

And that it is not practical to go into detail, because:

People who do not want to live together cannot --
by no amount of rules or force --
be made to live together.

Is the "monstrosity" not merely a paraphrasing of the conditions
for staying in this old living room here?

Without a Sugarmountain of money or a space-dildo for Captain Kirk,
one cannot afford to get to know the legal situation, or differences,
or consequences, or do anything about them.
And: Two lawyers -- three opinions.

So I will simply continue trying to do the Austin Powers ("Behave!").




Normality is merely a question of quantity, not one of quality.
