If two parties can't enforce a contract themselves without violence, then
adding a third party doesn't help at all - either the third party settles
things using violence, or it has to enter into a contract with each of the
initial two parties, so you have only multiplied the problem.

Of course, this wasn't really intended for you, Jim, I believe you're
hopeless, just for the innocent bystanders <g>
