228. The best minds will tell you that when a man has begotten a child he is morally bound to tenderly care for it, protect it from hurt, shield it from disease, clothe it, feed it, bear with its waywardness, lay no hand upon it save in kindness and for its own good, and never in any case inflict upon it a wanton cruelty. God’s treatment of his earthly children, every day and every night, is the exact opposite of all that, yet those best minds warmly justify these crimes, condone them, excuse them, and indignantly refuse to regard them as crimes at all, when he commits them. Your country and mine is an interesting one, but there is nothing there that is half so interesting as the human mind. (God & Children & Cruelty & Crime & Mind) Mark Twain, Letter from the Earth

6,022. Fundamentalists long for the return of a more moral America, an America that may never have been. All around them they see what they perceive as declining morality and spirituality. They reason that if humans share ancestry with the other animals, we have no reason to behave as anything other than animals. This view neglects the fact that humans are the only known animals with the ability to contemplate the consequences of their own actions. It also fails to recognize that there is a great deal of good in the world, the nightly news notwithstanding. Crime existed long before the theory of evolution, even before the writing of the Bible, and biologists do not like crime any more than the creationists do. Evolutionary theory is not a license to run amok, and neither is a belief in the literal interpretation of the Bible a guarantor of moral behaviour. (Evolution & Fundamentalists & Morality & Crime & Good & Behaviour & Bible) Tim Berra, Evolution & the Myth of Creationism

(Education & Manners & Crime) Thomas More, Utopia

136,028. Among industrialised nations, America has a unique and fraught relationship with its system of criminal justice. It’s a country preoccupied with the threat of crime, and also how to protect itself against it. Politicians run for office based on how tough they will be on crime. Many states still have the death penalty and there is a policy of mass incarceration that far outstrips any other country on earth. Louis Theroux, Life on the Edge: Law & Disorder, BBC 2020
