Typical fundie anti-intellectualism. Tell us again how sociology is a scam.Stick to the "Ivory Tower," Eco. Your ideas don't amount to a hill of beans anywhere else.
Or... At least, that is how things would work under an autocratic government.
The United States is a bit different, as people have a say in deciding law through the power of elected representatives. This is actually a major cause of the rather confused justice system you see today, as voters are often in favor of retributive forms of punishment, and tend to view some crimes as being more heinous than others regardless of the level of objective harm that they can actually be shown to cause.
It is essentially emotionally driven "mob rule," working in collusion with the more draconian impulses of government, to bring American society the very worst elements that both worlds have to offer.
No need. Your posts do it for me.Typical fundie anti-intellectualism. Tell us again how sociology is a scam.

I will tell you right now I have it easier and better than most parents because of that family and the collective knowledge we have. I am ever grateful for it. It is a special family one you don't see all the time.
