Crooked Thinking

A - Comment about teachers who beat children: "a lot of this is cultural when i was young, it was more acceptable, today we live in a more modern world..."

What a pathetic excuse. Beating children was wrong then, even if it was common, in the same way that slavery was wrong even when it was widespread.

Moreover, you don't mean we live in a more modern world. You mean we leave in a better world, a more moral world, where outrages like slavery and child abuse are no longer tolerated.

Anyone who was himself beaten in school should explore legal remedies.
