Since I've been praising the social and cultural institutions of rich western countries recently, I think it's worth remembering what I would do if I were the (benevolent of course) dictator of one of them (America lets say).
- Legalise drugs.
- Legalise prostitution.
- Legalise polygamy.
- Abolish just about all public services and most regulations. Public schools would go, the minimum wage, most health and safety laws stringent controls of drug testing; the list goes on a bit.
- Slash taxes.
- Offer criminals a choice of punishment in many cases. Usually some form of (mild) torture instead of prison time. Possibly castration for sexual offenders.
- All but abolish immigration restrictions.
- Ban (yes ban!) factory farming and many other practices involving animals.
Of course, this isn't all, but it does suggest that I'm hardly complacent about the status quo.
