Okay, and what do you propose to do with those who refuse to become a productive part of society?
I mean, this is really where the rubber meets the road on the issue, right?
I just cut right to the core of the issue first (which is, admittedly, my nature), I just wanted to dispense with the rhetoric right up front. Forget the method, it was about the underlying point (i.e. they have to be removed from society, if they refuse to be a productive part of the same). Doesn't really matter whether it's Bangladesh, the stockade or Mars.

Yeah, I get that about your beliefs.
You're an authoritarian.
It is not the foundation of the Constitution.
The foundation of the Constitution is the RESTRICTION of government power, our system is designed to diffuse the power of all levels of government for good reason.

Grew up near Seattle, went downtown all the time in high school, was super nice for a bigger city.
Came back from college started getting a little seedy.
When I moved out of downtown seattle a few years ago afterliving there for 3 years I was fine never seeing it again.
