Of course it is. It is the quintessential new-age Sodom and Gomorrah; a fucking buffet of degeneracy. They're the "Florida Man" of "shit that evil people do for fun," in the news. Nothing would surprise me. They could come out, tomorrow, and legalize the eating of at-term-abortion babies because of "nutritional reparations," since the baby technically "stole" all its nutrients from the mother. Then they'll pass a law protecting a woman's right to sell said baby. Then it's only a matter of time before you can buy fresh baby-kebabs at your local Bergstein & Mo's Kebab Shop. Pretty neat coinkydink that it's one of the major jewish hives of the world, isn't it?

People can choose to do good without a government telling them to. If you have to be told to do the right thing in everything by your government you eventually loose that muscle.

It's important to have the capacity to say "I want to do this, but that would be a bad idea, so I'm not going to."

Keep in mind that the prostitution happened without the government there. Prostitution is bad because it produces bad outcomes, hence why we dislike it. So now we just took those negative outcomes that exist without government and made them more negative by making one of the consequences jail.

I like the way you put this; it's 100% better than the way that retard @pol_pot put it (yes, I'm pinging you: faggot. Still care to join the debate, or are you going to continue to cower behind your faux sense of superiority?) I agree that prostitution happened without government interaction. If I agree to that: will you agree to notice that I said no mention of "more government" being the solution? If anything: my position is that further legislation is going to do nothing more than legitimize evil, by giving people a legal scapegoat (another jewish construction, neatly enough). Arbitrarily granting people "more freedoms" isn't going to solve any problems; some things are taboo for a reason. Killing babies is wrong. Ending your genetic lineage by refusing to put your penis in a vagina is wrong.

No man is an island. The fact that we are to exist, as a species, means that we have to work with (and to a certain extent: begrudgingly agree with) one another. We're looking at this problem from a perspective of differing expectations, however: because you posit that by adding heftiness to the weight of consequences, that we're somehow negatively affecting the situation. But if that were the case: why do you even have any punishment, for any "crime", to begin with?

Gov't pretending like what they say really matters as usual. People are going to do what they do, and as long as they aren't harming anyone, who cares. Good to see you are well aware.

Prostitution is awesome, it reigns with private gun ownership on the pillar of personal freedoms. While I don't think that everyone who opposes decrim is emotionally a child, I think that anyone with your particular reaction is no better than a child, Sir.

Well, that's just your opinion. Literally, that's it. You've said nothing else than state your opinion, as have I, except where I simply speak my mind: you pretentiously up your grammar, use strawman tactics, and position yourself squarely in the middle of at least three rhetorical fallacies, off the top of my head. You know what I think? I think people who use appeals to emotion and tradition, to try and underhandedly claim moral high ground with hasty generalizations: to be emotional children. But that's just my opinion.

I personally think the problem with cities is showing the average city person is a low common sense entity. I don't care if their IQ is 200 without common sense that makes a real world IQ of around 50 because they cannot use that IQ for it's value and actually use it for stupid shit. People living in huge cities are to worried about what so and so thinks of them instead of what is the right thing to do. If you're worried about what so and so thinks you've got a high school mentality and haven't grown up yet as an individual.
