Muskos admitted there was no way to check whether workers would actually use the hour for its intended purpose.While it's doubtful that such a break would make much difference in the birth rate, employees will probably love the idea. In other countries, people would be shocked that a government body is concerned with the well-being of workers.
"You can't guarantee that a worker doesn't go out for a walk instead," he said, adding that employers needed to trust their employees.
But Muskos said he saw no reason why the motion wouldn't pass. On top of the health benefits, he said the sex breaks would also solve the area's low birth rate.
"This means that childbirth should be encouraged," his motion states, as reported by Swedish newspaper Kuriren. "When sex is also an excellent form of exercise with documented positive effects on well-being, the municipality should kill two birds with one stone and encourage employees to use their fitness hour to go home and have sex with their partner."
“All U.S. vigilante groups are in some way a representation of the American value of self-government,” Hernando said. “We are a society that was founded, at least in part, on the firm belief that the people have the right to create their own institutions of government, what is referred to as the ‘right of revolution,’ expressed right there in the Declaration of Independence. If the government is not doing what it’s supposed to, if it’s not protecting the people’s liberties, if it’s not serving the people’s interest, we have the right to rise up and replace that government. The problem is, you cannot do that on a continuous basis and have a stable society.”In addition to the Baldknobbers, Hernando tells us about the North and South Carolina Regulators, the White Caps, Las Gorras Blancas, the Deacons for Defense, the Ku Klux Klan, and other vigilant groups of varying notoriety, in an article at Collectors Weekly.
Some scholars have traditionally defined vigilantes as groups of middle- and upper-class men who want to reinforce “law and order.” However, Hernando points out that several vigilante groups were founded by members of poor, disenfranchised classes hoping to gain the economic or political power they didn’t have or to restore traditional morals. Inevitably, most groups fighting lawlessness by going outside the law become the corrupt criminal element they were trying to tamp down in the first place.
