  1. You seem to have bad feelings about Socialism, but you propose laws which would force people to pay for government oversight of currently legal activity. And all because their dogs MIGHT attack someone, not because they are guilty of any crime.

    Isn’t that Fascism?

      What I propose would be covered by the annual license fee and could be performed by a private sector contractor.
      A libertarian and a civic society are not incompatible. Just look at Singapore.

    This doesn’t address my main point at all!

    Private sector contractor enforcing the law or not, it is still the all-powerful State using their monopoly or force to keep track of those who have done no harm, all because you think they might! Even if the government outsources the job, it is still the same.

    So far as your example of Singapore is concerned, I have always held the place to be an over-regulated hellhole where the slightest innocent activity might land someone in hot water with the law. (Try chewing some gum while walking down one of their streets if you want to see a Draconian police state in action.) If this is your idea of a Libertarian society, then I don’t think you grasp what the word actually means.

    Aww please don’t label Staffies as ‘chav dogs’, I have one and I’m certainly not a chav.

    They’re not naturally aggressive either, they’re just strong and boisterous. That can lead to aggressiveness if you don’t train them properly, but if you’re sensible they are very friendly loving animals. There’s nothing wrong with the breed whatsoever, the problem is always at the other end of the lead.

    I second what Pete says, have one from a rescue home and they are great dogs when you take the time to train them properly, likewise im no chav.
    If everyone in the world was as easy to stereotype as Bruce says, then i guess he would be the stuck up posh boy, but im probably wrong on that one…

    My word you are misguided and uneducated. No dog is naturally aggressive, and as for putting a dog down if the owner Doesent pick up after it more than twice, are you genuinely serious? How is it the dogs fault if the owner Doesent pick up after it? You just sound like a snob with a very bad attitude

    Also you just contradict yourself. You say that everything the dog does wrong should be the owners fault yet you would propose the dog be put down when the owner does something wrong by not picking up after it
