    I actually read some nonsense like this in the guardian the other day where some social working trust fund nutcase was going on about the failures of prisons to rehabilitate and the barbaric nature of societies caging people. They shut the comment section down after five minutes and pre-moderated it, which I think is cowardly, ask any victim of an assault if they think people should be put in prison. I really don't understand what sort of imaginary world these people live in.

    So, no change to the actual situation of intellectual property theft? It's the equivalent of addressing addressing a burglary problem by tearing up the sidewalk.

    I don't question your love of Trump, just the notion that is has a rational basis. A couple of good things have happened these two years, but also a lot of bad things.

    Laissez-faire will be the dream until you actually live it, much like no restrictions on post content is the dream until people visit 4chan and Gab.

    I do thank you for the time you invested. See you around.

    Did he also repair my roof, fix my plumbing, edge my lawn, dust my shelves, and clean my windows? I might work out a place for them to stay.

    Illegal immigrants pay taxes. Whether they rent or own, they pay property taxes (where most school and police funding originate), and when they buy, they pay sales taxes (most of the rest).

    Spoken like a representative of the Democratic party.

    Then you go contradicting yourself.

    I have a visible dent in my forehead from when I was hit by a crowbar during a mugging. Go on, ask me what I think.

    Well, in this case the man is hired by someone living in the house. And he is supporting a business run in that house that would not exist except for his cheap labor. And he is eating the food that he paid for. And he is sleeping in a bed that he paid for.

    So I will answer by saying “your question is idiotic”.

    Why do you never blame the illegal Americans who hire the illegal aliens? If you convince me it is some other reason besides skin color I’ll agree that you are not a bigot, so give it a try.

    You do know that children applying for asylum have not committed a crime and are in cages, right? And you do know that they are HUMAN children, right?

    Yeah no solid progress yet but I’m glad that it’s in the conversation now. I think we can both agree that that is good, and who knows maybe something will come out of it. That’s the point I was trying to make.

    As for Laissez-faire, there are downsides but there are enormous upsides. Voltaire, JS Mill—from a utilitarian perspective—have some interesting reads.

    The guardian article was in relation to people convicted of crimes within our society, ie criminals. My country has been imprisoning asylum seekers for nearly 20 years, I think its disgusting.

    And to think how totally screwed up it was just before your dear leader was elected.

    Fair enough. Clinton, Bush, and Obama all complained about Chinese intellectual property theft as well.I don'tsee tariffs making a difference, but Trump has done no worse on the front of intellectual property theft than any other.

    If we improve human nature considerably, laissez-faire could work. I'm not holding my breath.

    Just saying.. get involved with local politics where YOU CAN make a difference. And it's easy... make a change locally, then regionally, and so on.

    What? I cant make out what you are saying about illegal Americans. And what does skin color have to do with anything?

    You didnt answer the question. You just made up completely different analogy that isnt related one bit.

    The question was pretty simple. It needed a yes or no answer. You would only need to use about 3rd grade reading comprehension skills to understand what was asked. Tell me you are smarter than that.
