Maybe, just maybe

instead of promoting more police activity to chase down our every method of communication (and allowing them to invade our privacy at every turn)... maybe we could find a way to actually reduce the crime that takes place. After all, the police don't actually stop much crime. They mostly get involved to find whom to blame and punish them.

If the world's economies didn't send 60% of their GDPs to the banks, I'm pretty sure that there would be more equality and I tend to think that would lead to less crime.

Bonus: If so, we could then eliminate most of the police function and expense and become even wealthier still.
