One part of this thread is directing into the science vs. religion debate which is Cross; the other part seems to be edging around the ethics of (state) intervention, IMHO, which is Crown. Neither of which is Conlanging. We can always treat the title as a translation exercise :) In Brithenig: Lla yscient es interessant, s'w ngongwenith rhen, gw phodeth ffudergw Now I will have to research to confirm if Brithenig does treat 'fuck off' as a reflexive. It seems to be normal in Romance languages for turning transitive verbs into intransitives. - andrew.
