| Ouch ! I feared you would say that.

  And I feared you did in fact know and were only trolling.

  You are now mixing your opinion with legal fact.  You also appear to
  confuse the existence of a system with some desirable results, in
  effect denying that the system exists if it has not produced all the
  results you desire.  You may find it surprising, but I do not wish
  to entertain a discussion with you on such premises.

| Or maybe you were just trolling. But that doesn't look like you (fwik).

  I thought you were.  I know nothing about you, but you have shown a
  lack of willingness to distinguish important historic facts from
  your opinions based on human suffering.  That is very troll-like in
  my book.  Bringing up human suffering is generally dishonest and
  anti-intellectual.  It is like discussing health care systems and
  bringing up a suffering baby and asking "would you kill this baby?".
  Those who do that kind of thing tend to explode in irrationalities
  when I would answer "yes".  I take it for granted that you now wish
  to explode with hatred and will hurl accusations against me for
  supporting genocide and what not at this point -- I have seen what I
  believe to be your kind several times before -- so you do not have
  to actually do it.  If you wish to make a different point, such as
  showing that you understand what "rule of law" means, I may respond,
  but the way you have chosen to argue, any future silence on my part
  simply means that I am too exasperated to deal with you.
