Step 1 in the process of doing away with them would very well have to be
the deregulation of certain things we aren't allowed to talk about here,
that would attack their monetary backing.
Step 2 is to use what we learned when we did the same with the drink
and prepare for the migration from one source of income to the next,
you take tax money that may or may not come from what we are not
allowed to speak of and apply it to law enforcement with a specific goal
of attacking organized crime.
Step 3 repeat step two until you get something akin to the balance we
now have with that type of crime in the U.S. while that crime still exists
here it is no where near as powerful as it was when they had access
to the exorbitant profits made in a sate of prohibition of alcohol.
The sheer profit margin on things which are illegal are what drives the
over zealous use of force to protect those profits, it they drop to a
30% profit margin on any illegal activity they choose to do after
ending the 3000% profit margins it just may well not be worth
it for them to apply as much force.
Also i would point out that not all of the organizations in organized
crime kept on doing illegal things, many did of course but some
decided that instead of getting 30% profit margin from illegal things
they could pull close to that on a legitimate business and simply
went that rout....... why do illegal things when the legal things
are close to as profitable. like i said not all but some would go that
rout as well.
on a side note, i feel like such a child being restricted in what can and
cannot be discussed as to breaking news, i can understand the desire
to not allow threads and posts that are specifically to promote the use
of illegal things or illegal acts but to discuss something in context of
news and it being very pertinent to the news its about is very childish,
almost plugging your ears shutting your eyes and going lalalala this
stuff doesn't happen!
We are all adults and this is major news and a major issue in the real
world today, to be forbidden to discuss news on a site like this is asking
a bit too much if you ask me. I have honestly let it get to me to the point
of considering terminating my account and finding a more, for lack of
a better word, adult forum to speak about these things on.
