I dont know if Hippies = Pedophiles. It seems as if your the one with jumps in logic
Way to miss the forest for the trees.
If a group of people can simply decide to come at you and deny you the 'right' to live, own property, etc - for any random reason they come up
with... what stops them from taking: "We don't like pedophiles and think they should be killed" and turn it into: "We don't like bankers, and
think they should be killed?"
Why not? Many think a number of the bankers out there are breaking laws and cheating people out of money. Doesn't take a massive leap of logic.
On the other hand - I can point out the more liberal element, who tend to collect government subsidies for standards of living and call them moral and
You can turn around and call me a moral and ethical cheat for not thinking another person has a right to a standard of living to be provided for by
the society around him/her.
And so on. Before you know it, we're all cheats, cons, and the bane of someone's existence (groups like pedophiles are likely more universally
disliked - but they are merely the catalyst and the precedent for going on door-to-door witch-hunts to satisfy some odd blood-lust).
It's called "mission creep" in the military: "We entered Vietnam to help teach the South Vietnamese how to operate an effective military
resistance against the communist North Vietnam... one thing led to another... and we kicked off Operation Rolling Thunder for one of the largest
bombing campaigns in history."
Mobs are, notoriously, worse at keeping mission creep under control.
