    Unseen,

    The Feds already shut down Backpage and the business end of Craigslist, even though both services fully cooperated to get traffickers for the Feds. Those apps and Websites (which I’m not clicking) may be next. After that, it’s the Dark Web, which is definitely no place to go.

    Only making the World’s Oldest Profession legal and above board will take the worst aspects of it away, and getting there will also mean questioning many Abrahamic attitudes on sexuality.

    @Enco

    Your ignorance about prostitution overflows into your ignorance about apps and websites. Some of these resources have been online for a decade or longer. There are even sites offering reviews of the girls (well, mostly girls) and the quality of their services. You can even hook up on Facebook though Snapchat is far safer.

    And while Backpage is gone, the concept lives in the form of YesBackpage.

    The biggest risk is that of being scammed or rolled, but I can be scammed on a used car lot or rolled walking from my apartment to the nearby convenience store.

    Unseen,

    Suit yourself, but my budget can’t go bail for every prisoner of “victimless crime” laws, much as I’d like it to do so.

    Jake,

    You’ve been accused of a felony and you are innocent? Who ya gonna call?

    And who is it that writes the laws that have grown so much as to make every U.S. Citizen a felon multiple times over? Predominantly, it’s lawyers. Even non-lawyer Legislators use lawyers to put their proposals into Legalese that matches no vernacular of any human language and can be broad enough to snare virtually anyone.

    Enco you are really gonna defend the if it wasn’t for lawyers you wouldn’t need em?
    Thomas Hobbes would puke through his rotted molecules. No laws? Really? But police? Isn’t that the libertarian thing? So the fuzz will act arbitrarily? Arrest bad guys on a whim? It might prove to be a libertarian phantasmagoria. I am not sure the free market will work particularly well in a kill the pig, dance the jig economy.

    Doctors do doctorly stuff. Engineers do engineering stuff. Architects design stuff. Bankers bank. It is an age of specialization. Somebody gotta write the laws. Should it be a beer belly moronic Trump supporter high school dropout who speaks in the vernacular? I am not too crazy about no laws.

    In terms of statutory interpretation there are guidelines. It is not as you have portrayed it. There is protection in the constitution against overly broad statutes that infringe on constitutional rights. There is a prohibition on vagueness. So clarity is required for a statute to be legally enforceable. There is also black letter law that the way statutes are interpreted is through their plain language. It is only when there is ambiguity that a court looks to legislative intent.

    Badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges. There was just mayhem for thousands of years.  Killing and taking, raping and pillaging.

    That’s what religion was all about… God is just the muscle and psychological means to get morons and thugs to behave somewhat. And of course, that power got abused as well. The law is all we got. And it starts with the constitution and filters down so that asshole X or corporation Y doesn’t dump carcinogens in our water supply. Supposedly.
