What about exile? what if we just dropped our absolute worst in someplace they could theoretically survive, but be extremely difficult to come back to the US and start shit? they'd be dropped somewhere off the Continental US, they'd never be allowed back in and we come compile a list of exiles worldwide to make sure they never return to their home countries again.

Who are we going to saddle them on? Australia? I feel like they've already been to that rodeo.

So today I took all my finals. All of them.

I'm packed and ready and FREAKING OUT. And I think my typhoid vaccine is kicking in, and the goddamn doxy is making me feel like I might die, and there's this BOY WHO IS NOT EVEN THIRTY YEARS OLD sending me filthy text messages which is very distracting.

Based on my superficial scanning of the posted quotes, and an understanding that is not backed up in any way by knowledge of the source material, it looks like kata-cthonia just owned the fuck out of whothefuckisultron, academically speaking. Citations and all that rot.

But again, it seems also a little as if whothefuckisultron may have just been trolling, and if so I have to say that outraged radical misinterpretation of classical texts is a brilliant troll.

Never heard of this blogger before, but his critique of the SJW world and its shortcomings is acute: http://fredrikdeboer.com/2015/03/10/critique-drift/

I like that guy. His articles on fallacies are the bomb.

This is far too much fun.

Quote from: Luther
Even if your writings were from an angel from heaven I would take this horrible document, and, after having used it as toilet paper, wipe its nose.

 :lulz: That's delightful.

Quote
Just as the devil is disorderly and jumbles things together, so your writings and head are equally disordered and mixed up, so that it is exceedingly annoying to read and difficult to remember what you write.

I had one Facebook Champion tell me that we don't need more resources for victims, we just need to execute perpetrators.

It's not about helping people, for them. It's just an excuse to advocate for killing people. They's probably be just as happy to advocate for killing the victims, too. These are the same kind of people who stone rape victims because, you know, they're ruined anyway.

I heard Bryan Stevenson on Desert Island Discs over the weekend and he claimed that they have found 1/10 death sentences carried out in the US to be incorrect after the fact. He made the argument that, leaving aside any moral case for or against, surely any sane person would agree that a 1/10 chance of killing an innocent person is too high to be justified under any circumstances.

There was a ton of other frightening prison stats he pulled out over the course of the show, and listening to his description of work trying to help kids who wind up in prison was genuinely heartbreaking.

I was horrified to hear that until fairly recently, there were states where it was compulsory for judges to hand down life in prison with no chance of parole to kids for some crimes.

The US penal system is a bit of a travesty. Mandatory minimum sentencing kind of defeats the whole point of having judges in the first place, given that they are supposed to be able to use their judgment to judge things. If a person can be kept out of prison, they should be, especially for nonviolent crimes; our prison system takes smalltime criminals and ensures that they will become worse. There is no attempt at rehabilitation.

Are you familiar with The Innocence Project? http://www.innocenceproject.org/

Yep.  Remember BH's drivel here?

ew ew ew

That was literally the most fucked up thing I've ever heard anyone say. I've heard some fucked up shit but that absolutely took the cake. I find it monstrous and inconceivable how anyone could say something like that about their own child.

What he was really saying was that he hoped the kid died so he didn't have to deal with things.

He's a horrible person.

He still occasionally PMs me, begging to be allowed back on PD.

Oh FFS. He really is just pathetic.

BH actually fills me with the sense of loathing and fear that some people have with spiders or snakes. Just OH GOD GET IT AWAY KILL IT WITH FIRE EW EW EW.

So from that perspective, I guess I can see why people want to execute other people, in a sort of kneejerk self-preservation way.
