Anyone who thinks democracy is a proper system of government need look no further.
Citizens in the Massachusets town of Middleborough voted to impose a $20 fine on their fellow subjects for committing the newly created "crime" of swearing.
MIDDLEBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) ? Residents in Middleborough voted Monday night to make the foul-mouthed pay fines for swearing in public.Statist logic: To swear in public is horrible and profane, to impose a tax on someone for swearing in public and threaten to jail them for not paying said tax is A-OK.
At a town meeting, residents voted 183-50 to approve a proposal from the police chief to impose a $20 fine on public profanity.
Officials insist the proposal was not intended to censor casual or private conversations, but instead to crack down on loud, profanity-laden language used by teens and other young people in the downtown area and public parks.
"I'm really happy about it," Mimi Duphily, a store owner and former town selectwoman, said after the vote. "I'm sure there's going to be some fallout, but I think what we did was necessary."
