Prison space?  Once that process starts of giving government arbitrary power, any government, the whole prison thing is unnecessary.  All they need is a place to dump the ashes of those once-wealthy.


France did it in the late 1700s.  The Soviet Union went there in the early 1900s.  Germany did it in the 1940s.  China, 1960s.  I am hoping the USA learned something from their experience: any government given arbitrary power will eventually devour its own.  


If we give away our constitution, you and I won’t be the first ones in that furnace.  But we will be there eventually.
