I just read the reader forum underneath a weekly newspaper's article on the media coverage of criminal cases . The article briefly touched on the purpose of penalties and the readers extensively discussed legal philosophy , free will and the origin, possible derivation and limits of human rights. In a calm and civilized manner , linking neurological studies and experiments .
That sort of gave me hope for mankind and it would be great to see more of that on here.
The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life. - Bertrand Russell A herring's blog Johari / Nohari
