And basically if people wanted to just abuse and shoot the crap out of each other, they could just go there and have at it, and no one would be legally culpable for anything that happens if they do go into that arena (although they would have to listen to the cops if the cops went in there to police the place). Meanwhile, every place else would be Business As Usual, and under typical laws.

    Don't say that nothing good ever came out of Typology Central!
    This kind of outlet could save the 50 Frickin' States of America.

    I second this motion. I shall become emperor of Warworld.

    Sounds like a fun idea, except with the government in charge it sounds like it could get Battle Royale-y very quickly.

    Better yet.

    They could package the best footage and market it in order to raise funds to pay off the deficit and support social programs (like gun safety) for the rest of society.

    I can't imagine this, but there could be more domestic terrorism from the far-Right like we saw with Timothy McVeigh. There are far-Right Libertarian militia groups in the U.S. of which McVeigh was a sympathizer.

    It is my impression, and moreso my hope, that the bulk of the population is more reasonable than the media (especially FoxNews) would indicate. The move towards tolerance and diversity may be too much for the extremists who could respond with violence, but I think the majority will favor tolerance.

    If there is a social collapse coming, it will be in the wake of the US defaulting on debts (probably due to a lack of willing creditors).

    I keep my powder dry for a reason.

    It doesn't matter. Secession is not viable. And in the past, the government has ignored secession petitions that meet the legal threshhold, not surprisingly.

    Most of the time, it's just a temper tantrum anyway.

    I shall secede to my own private island in the Pacific where I can talk to sharks and hoard vitamin D.

    I know I have to talk to totally different people about this, but I want Greenland and Baffin Island.
