Why should the State, which has more time, resources, and funding be given an unlimited amount of attempts to convict the same person for the same crime? If they fail they can file on the same charges and start anew, costing the accused untold fiscal damages in needing to retain lawyers and exert wi...

Circumcision bans are patently anti-semitic. Like how could it not be? (OOC: A total ban on even voluntary circumcision would of course be antisemitic. However, this draft only bans involuntary circumcision and therefore cannot be reasonably argued to constitute a religiously-discriminatory piece o...

If reduced recidivism is the goal, why not mandate that publicly owned prisons also adhere to meeting a national recidivism rate as well. After all, why punish private prisons when public prisons are allowed to continue harming inmates in the same way with impunity? Or maybe the government fudges th...

Some cultures don't have marriages. Liberimery has no state recognized marriage. Since we do not use marital status as a basis for any metric of taxable, it is none of the state's business what the definition of marriage is between the parties involved.
