Drunk drivers kill three people a day in Canada. The grief for the families is just as profound as if they had been mowed down with machine guns, but the law treats this as a relatively minor crime. In Roman times, crimes committed while drunk were punished doubly severely because there were two crimes committed: letting oneself get blotto to the extent they were not in control and the crime itself.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)

Wars of Separation
Some of the longest and most vicious wars are over separation. What we need is a formal, civilised process for separation.
- Hold a U.N.-monitored vote of the people in the region considering separation.
- If more that 60% vote for separation, the separation process begins. You need more than 50% because this is like a constitutional change and because you don’t want it drifting back under 50% shortly after the separation.
- There is a binding arbitration process to divvy up the wealth and debts.
That would redirect energy into politics rather than violence.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
