The condemned prisoner's family didn't do anything wrong.

That is funny because I have been personally held responsible for all these:

  • Slavery
  • Colonialism
  • The Holocaust
  • The Crusades

I am supposedly guilty of all these because somebody guilty is possibly is related to me (probably a dozen or so steps removed because I don't know anybody in my immediate family guilty of any of that). I am supposed to feel guilty about that - and if not I am evil, evil, evil and deserve to die (yes, the very same people who are against the death penalty often call for a lynching if they run out of arguments - and they do so proudly).

Then, when I switch on the TV, I see some murderer's mother crying "My boy didn't do no wrong" - why isn't she supposed to feel guilty? How is it that normal, law-abiding people are guilty for things that happened centuries before their birth while "The condemned prisoner's family didn't do anything wrong."? How so? Why this double-standard?

Any rational person has to admit that (in most cases) of course the condemned prisoner's family did a lot wrong, they raised him the way they did, they likely watched him go deeper and deeper into crime and quite often they also covered for him and obstructed justice. And in any case they are a lot closer to a criminal than I am.

Why is every criminal innocent until proven guilty while every law-abiding person is guilty without any chance of appeal?

Give it up, Kohath.

Democrats and Republicans are just as dumb as the supporters of the circus parties in the Byzantine empire:

They will vote for anybody who fulfills these requirements:

  • Is of their party
  • has a pulse
  • Is of their party
  • has enough money to run TV commercials
  • Is of their party
  • has enough money to give them a vote-for-me button
  • Is of their party

You keep asking for accomplishments, for the 3rd time already - don't you get it? give it up already!

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
