You're right Jake, savagery is escalating, but I think it's because we are doing what we always do by not adressing the real problems these people
Am I the only one who can't star this thread or posts, or is there some updated info I'm unaware of?
Anyway, yeah, I remember that marine vividly...I'd have to say it's still with me today. This kind of behavior is certainly shocking. Are people
even aware of the word compassion existing anymore? Is it even taught as a vocabulary word in school anymore? What the...it's all remarkably
disturbing to say the least, but what really bothers me is that this girl is simply being taken from the society we want her to learn to live in an
effort to enhance her ability to live in it? Why hasn't her problem been addressed? Ask any psychologist, psychiatrist or even physiologist and
they'll most likely tell you there's something wrong with this little girl. Why do I get the impression that she was abused (or is being abused) or
neglected by someone either physically or mentally (seems obvious) or both? Is this just so common an experience that we're taking for granted that
this kind of stuff happens in a normal (lol) society?
Why does this quote keep coming back to me:
"It is no measure of health, to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society." - Jiddu Krishnamurti
They should address her problem in every way possible, and really put an effort into healing her wounds (whatever it takes), thus giving her some kind
of closure - while at the same time reinforcing her faith in humanity compassion and goodness. This is where rehabilitation comes from, and problems
like this warrant an effort to cure, as opposed to prolonging the problem as long as possible by putting a black bag over her head and taking a time
out, thus allowing the progression into more heinous crimes.
This girl simply has the symptoms - and it seems always will - of a derelict society and it's inherent ability to deflect problems instead of fixing
