1. I like the effort, but no. The argument completely falls apart when you claim that a combination of vigilante justice and the morality of the criminal are the glue to hold the system together. Perhaps there is a way for a private criminal justice system to work, but I have never seen an argument that holds up to scrutiny. To me, there is no difference between a government and a private company with guns, just as there is no real difference between a government and a corporation other than that the government has guns.

    Either way, perhaps the real solution is justice that is meted out by the government that is local as possible while being independent of larger jurisdictions.
