	I listed a bunch of basic facts that you are methodically ignoring. And you keep pretending I don't know what I'm talking about or 'don't mean it'. That's both insulting and a complete waste of time on your part. (and mine)

	nah, you're just repeating propaganda, pretending that prostitution overlaps with 'human trafficking'. 

	of course, whatever alleged problems are there in the prostitution market are the fault of the government(duh!) that makes prostitution 'illegal'. 

	so again, the solution here to whatever alleged problems there are is abolition of government, not more government and more government propaganda (like the one you keep posting)

	same thing. Whatever problems there supposedly are, are the result of government intervention.

	In the US cesspool slavery is part of the 'law of the land'. Why do you keep ignoring the most basic facts?

	I don't think so. It's a pretty common government propaganda theme.

	yeah, first thing that is mentioned is prostitution, thanks form making my point. 

	furthermore what does 'procuring' even mean? Posting an ad for prostitution is 'procuring' of course.

	ah yes, prostitution is 'exploitation'. Thanks for making my point, yet again.

	Ok, you had your fun. Don't start playing the victim when you get treated the way you deserve to be treated. 

	Pay attention : YOU are parroting US fascist propaganda of the 'progressive' kind  and I'm calling your bullshit out. I do this because I'm on the anti-government camp, out of my own free will of course.

	If you don't read what I write why do you bother replying. 
	Here's my first reply to your propaganda
	you completely ignored all the facts I mentioned there and in turn made this idiotic reply

	"Juan, you don't mean these things you say here." 

        I MEAN what I say.

	yes, so why do you pretend that the US govt and its supporters are opposed to slavery?

	I think you have to stop pretending that I don't know what I'm saying.

	are you trying to downplay the most basic nature of government, i.e. it being  based on extortion, theft, slavery, murder?

	Yeah well. You indeed are a US government agent now. Not me. 
	Plus, I am still waiting for you to point out any lack of logic in what I say. If anything lacks logic here it is the pretense that so called 'NGOs' that are a front for the US govt are not evil.

	"disrupt community things" 

	In other words, your claim is false, hand-wavy nonsense.
