Men's communication is like semaphores in the navy - direct and to the point. Women's communication is like interpretive dance. No wonder communication between the two sexes is so difficult.
We might need some land reform in US, too. Are there any small farmers in the US who are making a living? And what's a small farmer anyway? If good crop land costs $10,000 an acre, a 40 acre plot would cost $400K, as much as a small house in a big city. On a vaguely related note, McDonalds stopped buying pork from confinement operations. Those were pretty inhumane. Most large operations that raise food animals are pretty disgusting.
Since our homeless population continues to grow, maybe what we need is a new peasant class. That should be a step up for the homeless because even peasants have someplace to live. Maybe take some largish tracts of farm land and carve it up into homesteads. Maybe do this around small, rural farming communities that are slowing fading away.
In season 7 of Bosch, which we just finished watching, Lieutenant Billets, a not particularly attractive woman, is revealed to be a lesbian. A couple of patrolmen take to harassing her, she fights back and the twerps are punished. The key point I wanted to make was that the people harassing her were twerps. These are a couple of grown men acting like kids. Maybe that's typical, but it was certainly juvenile. And maybe that's the problem, people are trying to make a federal case out of people being bad babies. Punishing babies with the law is just going to be a waste of time. Babies are taught by people saying 'no' in a firm voice and maybe spanking if they do something egregious or dangerous, and that's usually enough. As they grow up they should become more aware of the rules and become amenable to following them. Unfortunately, some people never seem to grow up. Perhaps baby crimes should be punished with baby punishments, like spanking, or a right cross to the chin.
