15. Sounds to me like fail all around

 

for the "restrict freedom first" school of thought when it comes to fixing societal problems. I guess we've been in that mode since 9/11 and the Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, and an assortment of other laws pissing all over the Constitution in the name of "safety and security".

Looks like now you're going to have to do the hard work of attacking root causes and changing societal attitudes. That's what real progressivism is.
