    Do you have any suggestions for the elimination of crime and making ours a better world?

    The elimination of criminals does not seem to be a sensible idea in order to achieve a crime-free world. This I view as a strong argument against capital punishment. Then, how can we make our world free of crime?

    Realistically, we can't make it free of crime unless we lock everybody up.  There are ways of confining criminals to their homes and monitoring their location. We will not always be able to make good people out of criminals.  Fighting poverty through economic growth in the private sector is another positive step.

      I approve of your 'another positive step'. And I should like to seek your views on my proposal stated above.

    There are no concrete suggestion for elimination of violence crime. Taking guns off of streets could help but there are laws who protect the guilty as well as the innocence.

    Years ago violence acts was betrayed by cowboys Indians and  soldiers  but those shows has became real

    There are no concrete  solution to eliminating violence crimes. There has to be violence for existence, a world without violence would be as self destruction as a world with violence. Jada67

      Your thesis that no violence means no existence seems right and very very significant. But you seem to have ignored an important point, namely that violence and crime aren't synonymous.

    The short answer, as others have suggested, is you can't eliminate crime; breaking social norms is ingrained in human nature.  Yes, some people are simply born, genetically, to be bad.  In others, the part of the brain which controls civility and "following the rules" is controlled by many sets of genes which interact with the environment as we grow up to allow (not make) us more or less prone to criminal behavior, ending up with a very broad spectrum of people willing to commit a crime.

    Consequently, all society can do are things to mitigate it. 

    - One way is to regulate firearms better; because criminals get 60% or more of their guns through legal means, this will reduce their access to them

    - Another way is to legalize the use and possession of small quantities of non-prescription drugs, heavily regulate the sale through state-controlled stores, and regulate the manufacture through state-controlled processors.  Accompany this with a strong anti-drug campaign and kick-the-habit program.

    - Change laws, strongly enforce existing laws, and greatly stiffen penalties on white-collar crimes by corporations and their executives.  Remove the corporate liability shield from civil action for white collar criminal activity.

    - Change laws so that white collar criminals cannot hide their assets behind their wife's skirts or other such trickery and make it accessible for paying back those who were hurt.

      Your thesis that 'some people are simply born, genetically, to be bad' is very serious. If it's true, then a crime-free world would remain a dream till the 'genetically' bad people are cured of their abnormalities through genetic engineering.

      You can never genetically engineer the "bad" genes out, there are too many possible combinations of genes alone, and then there is the interaction of certain sets of genes produce different behavior in different early environments. some of it bad.

    I think stricter consequences based on crimes.  For example, I just watched a movie about a man who committed 47 crimes before he was caught.  The max  sentence would have been 30 plus years in prison.  The case went well.  He was found guilty.  But at the verdict, he only was given 11 weeks in prison.  It was far from what he should have received for the crimes that he did.

    I'm not saying prison is the answer to everything, I'm just saying the punishment needs to fit the crime.

      I subscribe to your view that 'punishment needs to fit the crime.' And in addition, I'd advance the following proposal.
      Let's make the principle of healthy and meaningful living our life principle and encourage others to do so. What is your view?
