i'm just watching a band called S Club 8 (a group of 8 whinging little kids, if anyone doesn't know) and a thought popped into my mind...
i think the world should employ a 'democratic culling' policy.
of course, the finer details are still to be worked out, but the basic framework is this:
any citizen may propose a target to be culled
this citizen in question will be put to a public vote
every citizen has the write to vote to cull said citizen, to let the citizen go free, or to abstain from voting
what does everyone think then?
