    Again different strokes for different folks is true, but this gets into the argument of individual versus societal rights. Should you allowed to hurt your neighbor to make yourself feel better? Do you have a right to hurt someone or does society have a right to protect it's members?
    Well, there is a difference between protecting someone's rights, and negligently shielding them from the world.

    More specifically, what do you mean by harm in this instance.

    Are we talking about (and hang on for the ride because I'm about to get legal) intentional infliction of emotional distress?

    Plaintiff must actually suffer emotional distress

    The emotional distress suffered by the plaintiffs must be "severe." This standard is quantified by the intensity, duration, and any physical manifestations of the distress. A lack of productivity or depression documented by professional psychiatrists is typically required here, although acquaintances' testimony about a change in behavior could be persuasive.

    An example of an act which might form the basis for a claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress would be sending a letter to an individual falsely informing the person that a close family member had been killed in an accident.
    Or are we talking, you just got you're feelings hurt?

    I have a problem with forcing kids to do things they don't want to do (within reason obviously) as well.
    Right. I have no issue with kids freely competing with each other on their own accord. Sometimes it's hard to determine when that is though. Like, if high schools didn't give teenagers the expectation of deciding on superlatives in their senior year, would they naturally decide to create something of that nature? I doubt it, considering that most high school classes have hundreds of students, but only a handful of superlative "winners". Dunno though. Children who attend democratic schools don't typically get as competitive as public and private school children. Not with each other, at least.

    You don't have a problem with this discussion, yet you want to hide it from view?

    Yeah that makes perfect sense.

    Perhaps you should read more of my post to get a better understanding of my views. Or not...

    So we're talking about rights now?

    We all have the right to invade this thread and talk shit about it, too. What's your point?

    I can view the graveyard threads just fine. The graveyarded superlatives thread is entertaining.

    Any questions? Would you like me to break it down further into elementary particles for you?
