Quote from: MadBomr101 on April 19, 2020, 04:06:28 PMI have an idea on how to get some kind of control on the practice and spread of racism -- regulate it like they do everything else. First, we pass a law that puts racism under tight government oversight. Then let's say you want to hate on blacks and Jews. You have to pay a hefty $10,000 fee for each group you want to hate so that's $20,000 to hate on blacks and Jews for a period of one (1) year. The license must be renewed each year at 10% off this initial cost. If you're caught practicing racism without this license it will cost you $25,000 in fines and up to a year in jail.The fewer groups you hate, the less your annual expenses being a racist will be. Stop hating anybody and you can save yourself all this money and take a trip to Greece instead unless you live in Greece then you can travel to Scandanavia or the Phillipines.Three (3) strikes on your racism license and they revoke it entirely. On a related note, I also think if we raise the cost of bullets to $1000 apiece these mass shootings will fall way off. These lunatics don't have that kind of money. This would likely result in a number of GoFundMe campaigns by people trying to raise enough money for a mass shooting but fuck em. No one's gonna contribute to thatIf we can't change hearts at least we can make Man's darker urges prohibitively expensive.Good ideas for a better world.Post 2 of 25
Quote from: Old Seer on April 19, 2020, 04:27:38 PM Do you mean, tax racism. If so, you can tax the right to be racist. Everyone is racist, it's inherent in ones natural self preservation/protection system. Some are more-so then others. What would be taxed then would be the actions/results of racism while the mental couldn't be taxed as such. How can it be known when someone is in a racist mental state. Billionaires can afford to be racist and won't go to prison. Billionaires are only charged with crimes if against another rich person and under certain conditions.

Quote from: Tom62 on April 19, 2020, 07:03:55 PMI like the idea, but would like to know which definition(s) of racism will be used for that purpose. As it is right now, everything seems to be racist nowadays. This even includes Math, the Coronavirus or being critical about Islam (which is rather silly, because Islam is not a race).
Quote from: Asmodean on April 20, 2020, 12:08:57 AMWhy Mexicans though? They are not a race any more than Germans or those pesky Luxemburgers..?
Quote from: Asmodean on April 20, 2020, 12:24:27 AMThat's xenophobia though, not racism (which may be a special case of xenophobia, but not necessarily)I see no reason to legislate against it.
Quote from: xSilverPhinx on April 20, 2020, 02:22:36 AM Hmmm...And how would the underground license market play into this? I'd bet they'd be finding way cheaper ways than the normal bureaucratic route, prices so juicy that racists who just can't help themselves will bite.
