It is not possible to overly protect the citizen population without greatly reducing freedoms. It is a tradeoff (like knowing a quanta's position and momentum at the same time). Although, it seems that elimination of poverty goes a huge step forward in solving many of the major problems.

For example, look at SE Asia. It has gone from being one of the worst dilemmas of the world to being one of the beacons of economic and success. Not only economically, but politically and socially that region has greatly achieved remarkable gains. It is no big deal to travel throughout Laos, Cambodia, Burma, and Vietnam. What French and American 'carpet bombing' failed to do over decades the market economy did far better without any deaths.

There is always going to be crime. The answer is to reduce it is to provide better education that also teaches morality. I agree with Paul that we simply haven't evolved enough sensibilities to be sensitive enough to find the cure. However, I think any solution should come from creating a self-organization system where the answers come from within (not imposed by some state control that is very ineffective).

Warm regards, Harv
