    Translation: I don't know what you are saying so therefore you must be stupid

    I can think of one other possibility
    I don't know you well enough to suggest 'stupid'....

    You haven't happened to have noticed that most of the threads you start go down this (see above posts) rabbit hole? Maybe the issue isn't 'everybody else', but a failure to communicate...

    But it's the first choice of many who are simply bored.
    Not sure how leading with biblical quotes makes atheists or freethinkers 'desperate....'

    (This is why the military marches troops in training for miles and miles as "punishment" for breaking the rules. But it only works for those that enjoy jogging. Not everyone does.)
    How much time did you serve?
    The miles and miles of marching, with or without full kit, is to condition them so that they can travel to the site of a battle and still be battle-ready.
    The reason the military marches the entire troop for one or two people's misbehavior is to promote team-oriented behavior. Don't mess up, and don't tolerate others messing up, because it's a unit problem.

    But that's Army, Marines.
    Navy efforts to promote unit-oriented behavior is to move muster time forward a half-hour. We're not over-endowed on sleep time, so mustering at 0400 is going to have a strong impact.
    The Air Force cancels tee times.

    But i don't understand how you think the 'politically correct' standard is to be 'tough on crime.' PC is usually held to be a Leftist plot, while 'TOC' is the easy dogwhistle for conservatives. They're tough on crime to suggest that they won't be leftists and let people off with token punishment, a slap on the wrist. They use the phrase exactly to convey that they are NOT PC.

    woof woof woof.
    There is no such thing as moral or immoral behavior. Only civilized and uncivilized behavior. Civilized laws are laws that do not give any one person or any one group of people any special rights above what all others have. The more a society treats everyone as equals the more civilized it is.

    The same imagination that created The Wizard Of Oz with a talking lion and scarecrow.
