The American public school system may be terrible, but here, I think that out of the top twenty high school, one, maybe two, are private.
And...that's wherever you are. Which, from that statement, I interpret as 'not in the US.' Since I happen to be from America, I'll just continue to use examples that I'm familiar with.
My point is that, while your system may need a massive overhaul, it's not a reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Public school can be good. Make it so, instead of condemning the poor to be uneducated. (I'm sure there are alternatives, even without public education. Like a, aha, governmental organisation to see that there is at least a minimum of quality in every school, and massive scholarships, and so on. But you don't seem favorable to them either...)
Re: the draft. What Sun Tzu said. And the bit about putting your life on the line. And the Heinlein reference.
...and how do any of those count as wanting a draft? People have the choice
of serving the government or not. I know plenty of people who have, I know plenty of people who wouldn't touch the government with a twenty-foot pole.
And you want to take rights from them.
Want to send all-volunteer firefighters into chemical plants?
Why not? If I were a firefighter and I had the training, I'd go ahead willingly. It's what I signed up to do, after all.
Big if. While there is no need for an all-professional firefighter corp, some parts of, well, fighting fire are full-time jobs, and should be treated so. You said it could be handled locally... I don't disagree on that point.
The mafias outgun you. And your kids, when they go to school? They outgun them, too.
Yay corruption and oppression of minorities!
And again, do explain more fully than a six-word answer, please.
What's to keep people from electing a judge after their own heart, who will consider, say, a Black dating a White to be a capital offense? Just an example.
