Leaning

Pro

If you accept this debate you accept debating with the 'spirit of what I intend by this argument.
This meaning that to either side, Definitions are a bit more fluid, Not set in stone, A bit more free to come and go. The voters, If any shall judge whether the 'spirit is kept.
Voters are free to vote however they like without having to make some intricate argument to justify their vote, Although I would appreciate it if they are good sports and honest about it.


Righto then, I take the side in this debate that our system of justice that operates by punishments of time and punitive amounts of moolah to be paid,
be one or more of these three.

(The Three)
Ought be changed in the current system.
Ought be amended if a new system was created.
Ought be at the least admitted to being silly.

(Various methods I propose to accomplish such)
What is a prison?
A miserable filth pot, That often sullies those placed within.
Better to cut off a hand, An eye, An ear,
A public flogging,
More reasonable perhaps would be more smaller prisons and optional work programs,
Exile from city, Country, Or state,
More focus on counseling's and such.

I vaguely recall reading Starship Troopers Robert Heinlein.
