This question is about what a government can do to avoid the wealthy from imposing their will through physical violence: How to regulate the expected result of fights between hired mercenaries?
I have answered that by switching to a certain form of government (and socioeconomical organization), the problem would be averted altogether. However, my answer was deleted and turned into a comment.
I understand that it made it into the queue because somebody didn't think it was fit for the question. However, it was not my intention to comment; the format of the post wasn't even fit for a comment.
I posted what I posted because I think I have a valid answer to the question. I think the appropriate action when you think an answer is bad is to downvote it. I have no problem with that.
Can someone explain to me why, in a question about what a government can do to prevent an economic maneuver, an answer suggesting a change in the form of government is invalid?
