well, apparently there is an argument to be made by many--google us military/socialist institution and youll find many consider it as i do

blackwater? no, not socialist==i get that, but our military aint blackwater, thk god!

"The military is clearly a socialist institution. Taxes are collected from the population at large and used to pay for the entire defense complex. The soldiers don't own the tanks and planes they use, the tax payers do. Hence they are a social good. Under a capitalist system we would be hiring mercenaries instead of soldiers."

disagree as you wish--but it's "other people's (taxpayers') money" that funds our military, and we're not gonna run out--so, yeah, us military is a worthy socialist institution (within our "mixed economy") with staying power.

i hear you that this may improve attitudes about conflict in the water, which is a very good thing---but not so sure the law shd be involved but for where something really heinous goes on---like this, for example, where a guy brain damages another guy with a weapon---and no matter how challenging or confrontational the victim was, the perp took things to a whole new level--

two guys end up in a fistfight?? and both want in?? it's a bit buyer beware for me, if someone ends end hurt---now if one guy incapacitates the other, who basically gives up and goes submissive, and the other guy goes on to do serious damage?? that's problematic, but tough to enforce---if a guy simply does not want to fight, doesnt talk shit aggressively, tries to walk away, and the other guy beats the hell out of him?? that prolly cageable?? tough call, in many cases

but if two guys are having words, any words, and one guy takes a weapon to the other (unarmed) guy and whacks him in the head, inflicting serious injury incl brain damage?? cage

now i am lucky i have never seen anything vicious go on btwn surfers--only words, in fact--if places i surf had serious localism and violence, i might well think the law should be involved, in attempt to change the culture---and my reluctance to have the law involved would go away

smells like the right verdict

the finest, most efficient/effective socialist institution in the world is the US Military

why cant our govt run our student loan programs?---US issues 10 year notes monthly--yield to maturity of 2.50%--kids borrow money, that they will owe til they pay, or die (only form of debt--incl corporate, business, or personal--that doesnt go away in bankruptcy) and our college kids pay 7+%

our banks have paid politicians to allow the "free market" to handle these loans, even tho many are govt guaranteed, so the banks have zero exposure anyway, yet make huge monaey on the backs of college kids hoping to get in on our economy some day----and the banks make loans all the day long at way lower rates than student loans to entities that can and do frequently go bankrupt and walk away

so gross the way weve allowed this--fleece the future earning of our college kids!!!!!!!!!!  perfect, and not surprising--not too many $$ being sprayed around DC by college kids---Banks?? ha! $$$$$$$$$$$  benjamins flowing

agree, admin, on you theses, and also your defense of americans from generalization

also, much as i have never had problems with efficiency, so long as society takes care of those who end up disenfranchised thru no fault of their own, ai worries me. many americans resent caring for structurally unemployed already--multiply the ranks and

AI may, in fact, not be tenable, under classical american economic approaches--employment may become way less available than now, where a living wage has become much more scarce already, since the trickle up policies that began with reagan/stockman

we shall see---even 60 yo guys like me--this shit is upon us
