    Clearly

    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.
    Yes, you've told us many times just in this thread, you're very special. You're so special, it's okay for you to advocate child abuse. We got that.

    Would you care to provide another explanation?

    Would you care to explain how wasting billions of dollars each year on frivolous incarceration helps anything whatsoever from a socio-political perspective?

    That's not ideological blindness, that's the actual purpose of the justice system as opposed to your perverted revenge machine view.

    Your revenge seeking does not justify the existence of society.

    Beating of course is a whole different issue.

    Blather on all you want, Eco. It won't change the facts.

    The reality of the situation is that our current justice system is a glorified "revenge machine."

    Should that be different? Perhaps.

    However, even within the "revenge" centric model, the simple fact of the matter is that there are far more efficient methods available than the "zero-tolerance and incarceration" approach with which the contemporary United States seems to be so enamored.

    Only in your tiny little self centered worldview. As long as you believe sociology is a scam, you will never have a sociological view of anything.

    spare the rod spoil the child, I'll say again.

    That's the problem with society nowadays too many passive aggressive people who think they've got a moat built around them.

    Stems from childhood "Time outs" instead of a rap on the ass with a yardstick...

    In that regard, I consider myself fortunate.
