It would take a complete change in human nature to achieve that paradigm, lovely though the notion is.  Imagine a world where we didn't need to guard our wealth or armaments  :rockon: .
There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

When I was a kid on the Isle of Wight, no one ever locked their doors, except at night.  Now, you can't even go out to post a letter without setting the burglar alarm.  :(

Not that badly so. It would just mean routing traffic through an extra server, a bit like spam traps/grey lists.

Ah, well, we know how well grey lists work.   :o:

Proper sentencing in real prisons without Sky TV, playstations and other luxuries would certainly help to stop people thieving as much.
Locking up junkies until they were clean then keep them inside for a further 2 years would stop the junkies getting addicted again when they come back out and thieving again.

Not sure how to enforce pc security though  :dunno:

It does if you use a powerful enough server. :)
