Re: a simple solution to illegal prostitution

"No, the money aspect is important."

It seems that many politicians are in a dichotomy over many things people like to do. They want to get more taxes - but they also promote religious objections to people enjoying themselves in some ways that are relatively harmless to society in general.

The second tends to override the first - to the extent that large sums of public money are effectively wasted on banning, enforcing, and prosecutions. Some of this goes as funding to groups with a vested interest in there being such bans. The politicians get an electioneering kick-back on this by making out they are only interested in protecting the childrenpublic.
