The next Congress should be elected through randomization process
Idea for justice system
When a problem occurs have the parties go to court with randomized juries as per usual. But we shouldn’t have any laws but simply the question can be not ‘is this against the law?’ But instead ‘is this person wrong and how to be punished?’ I think this could work a lot better because we are always making laws now after cases and it’s just becoming a headache for everyone. We obviously change our morals and standards as we learn more so why have all these laws meant to last forever? Just think about the permits, codes, tickets, etc. So yeah.
Ramblings on the cycle of abuse
So the cycle of abuse happens because people feel loyal to their family (which is a biological imperative?) Basically, people learn behaviors and repeat them if not given enough tools to heal.
I think one problem is that the biological imperative is even there when the kids are young and they don’t come forward because whenever anyone discovers someone is a child abuser they are treated like crap. So kids are scared to tell anyone there. Another problem is that many times we find out kids are abused but send them to just live with other relatives which seems weird because, I don’t know, abuse is a sign the whole family is dysfunctional. Not necessarily, but if it’s a cycle why do we put kids back into the cycle? Anyway therapy should be mandated obviously but therapy doesn’t always help. I feel sometimes therapists don’t put enough effort into doing what is proven to work but do what they think is best. And also all this is expensive which is unfair for poor families. Omg and I have heard of teens or males who are victims but not taken seriously. We should teach manners in school too.
Those are a few ideas to help fix the problem.
I think it’s actually kind of shitty that people know about the cycle but still act as if child abusers are pure evil and pretend they just came up with the idea to abuse on their own. I think for some people it’s too late though (can just live the rest of their life in jail) but for the future I think we can consider rehabilitation for even the worst offenders alongside imprisonment. Another problem with society there. There’s no rehabilitation. People are all out for revenge whether or not those methods work.
Anyway here’s a good site on the matter: http://davidmallenmd.blogspot.com/2012/02/hatefulness-as-gift-of-love-part-i.html
Do you care more about truly trying to fix a problem or getting revenge? Getting revenge may or may not stop it from happening. You care less about the victims at that point. Food for thought.
