Our current system is just murder

You can get champions to fight for you.

The details are complicated, but Blackstone commentaries go into part of them.

And no, it isn't primitive. It worked all the way into the 1800s.

What is primitive is if someone passes an arbitrary law like preventing you from selling lemonade, and you disagree that your UNALIENABLE right can be taken away, and then a bunch of police come - in unlimited numbers, and threaten you, and if you don't go along with them, they kill you. With guns, and you are unarmed. That is primitive.

This has degenerated all the way to remote drone attacks and assassination of Americans without trial as it stands as of this year.

*that* is primitive.

Trial by combat recognizes that in a state of nature, you always have the right to protect yourself, and furthermore, prevents a person from being ganged up on by, say, snippers in helicopters, drone attacks, and an army of police. that is civilized

You have your systems backwards. We're living in the cowardly murdering system today.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
