@Snarfel Burger, oh man, that’s dark.
Bruh we got enough laws and legislation, can we not implement something everytime someone dies
@RomeoStealYoGurl, how about we make a law that when someone dies we don't care anyone.
@eksat, if you do that you end up like Australia.
@eksat, not every death can be prevented with a law.
Also, no matter how many laws you make, people can always break them, it just isn't necessary under all circumstances.
Usually the solution isn't legislation, simply looking at what went wrong and trying our best as individuals not to make that same mistake in the future. No government, authority, law, policy, restriction, etc will ever be better than good personal choices of individuals.
@Majesticmoose00, is my english that bad? What did you think i suggested xD
@RomeoStealYoGurl, just outlaw death. Simple and just as effective as any other legislation made in the wake of tragedy.
@Majesticmoose00, in all seriousness, today's cancel culture will happily erase all traces of the past people don't want to think about, and we will be in the situation where people will make the same mistakes again, because you can't learn from the past if it doesn't exist..
@eksat, it was pretty poorly written.
It looks like you suggested making laws about not caring about death or something.
Also, was it supposed to end with "anymore" or are you just missing punctuation?
@Majesticmoose00, lets not exaggerate, my phone auto corrected anymore to anyone. And thats exactly what I suggested so your response doesn't make much sense. Also all laws are suggestions no one can make anyone do anything, its in the constitution.
@eksat, "how about we make a law that when someone dies we don't care anymore?"
What does this even mean?
Care about what?
Also My comment is based solely on the fact that you suggested a law of any kind.
Not a critique of whatever the rest of your comment is supposed to mean.
@eksat, also, laws are not suggestions.
If you go against a suggestion, there is no intended/concrete ramification.
Laws have penalties, most of them have pretty standard penalties (fees or fines are a great example of this)
Laws are social expectations with direct consequence. That is no mere "suggestion".
Are there suggestions which also have fees, jail time, or execution associated with them? I can think of "threats" which have these things as penalties, but not "suggestions".
@eksat, if all laws are just suggestions, why do people have license plates, pull over for police, stop at red lights (even when there is no through traffic), slow down in school zones even when school is out, register anything, obtain licensure for numerous vehicles and businesses.
Probably because they aren't suggestions and are compelled into such actions through social pressure backed up with penalties of financial loss/setback, backed up with a very real threat of property/financial seizure or even jail time when payment is either unable to be completed or an outright refusal to pay.
"All laws are suggestions".
What a dumb point to try and make.
@Majesticmoose00, if you know the law you don't have to blindly pull over for police, my license has been expired for two years and no one has come for me or my car, several people own guns unregistered, if people slowed down in school zones there would always been the need to have police to intimidate people into following these suggestions. Especially when you give civil servants the impression they can decide punishments (ie death or beating the crap out of people unnecessarily). If laws are so compelled by social pressures and financial losses why are there so many of them ignored. You must live in your own little world unaware of whats happening around you
@eksat, the ability to break the law doesn't negate the law my dude.
what you need to explain is why we do any of this, I will agree that people get away with not doing it, but why does anyone do it in the first place?
@eksat, how many cars do you see without license plates?
How many unregistered food trucks/businesses do you see where you live?
Again, these are things which have no moral purpose or function, and yet people do them without question 99% of the time.
Why is that do you think?
@eksat, "several people own guns unregistered" why did the other ones get them registered?
@eksat, you have an expired license, why doesn't everyone let their license expire?
Also, an expired license won't get your car taken away. that wouldn't make sense.
You can own a vehicle, even if you are not legally allowed to operate it.
@RomeoStealYoGurl, when it keeps happening (extremely often now that the pandemic is winding down) and we’re the only country it keeps happening to, no, action is necessary mind you that isn’t going to happen so long the people with the gold keep insisting that nothing happens
@RomeoStealYoGurl, they said concrete action not necessarily a law.
Jesus. Too many laws and holidays and official national whatever product days..no. just stop....staahhhp
But if you misgender someone you’re going to jail
Good ol' Castro Jr.
@Raki Zaki, in BC Canada they found 450ish unmarked graves of natives that went to residential schools and 700 more in Saskatchewan. Essentially they were brutally beaten and killed in some cases cause they pretty much tried to stop them from being natives. The last residential school closed late 60's/early 70's so it fairly resent occurrence. Although people knew this happened The full extent of it wasn't uncovered till they found these grave. And I believe that the Canadian government covered some of this up at the time and the Catholic Church was responsible for funding theses schools. That's my understanding of it, if I missed anything or posted a mistake point it out
@Gorvo, nothing really missed, its a good general gist of it. However the dark part is that it was pretty much all children. Not even teens.
@Gorvo, Most died from common disease (although lack of medical care, low immunity to these diseases and good nutrition were a contributing problem). The vast majority did not die from physical abuse although mental physical and sexual abuse did occur. We did know of roughly 90% of these deaths. We just haven’t gone out to look for the bodies. The Canadian Government funded the schools (underfunded) and the Churches - Catholic, Anglican, United, and others ran them. The last one closed in 1996, but was very different than the earlier schools. By the 1970/1980s most were run by the bands. Kids went to school from 4-16/17 years old, but deaths are more likely younger kids with weaker immune systems. You could use a little bit of a history lesson, but hey we are all learning. These also occurred in New Zealand and Australia (and likely other places that I am not aware of). Colonizers were not very bright at the time and did some pretty crappy stuff.
@Padre, Kids from 4-18 attended the school, but because most deaths were from illnesses (eradicated due to vaccines now) younger kids were more susceptible to death due to their already weakened immune systems. Like I said above, lack of proper nutrition and medical care (due to improper funding and general care) was a major factor. Deaths were 30-40% higher from these illnesses within the school due to the crap food and underfunded medical care.
@Gorvo, also, many of the graves are community graves, that were already known about and not maintained by the community. The Church is under no obligation to maintain the graves of the entire community. Yes, some were children of the schools but a good majority are likely just folks who passed from the community. The media and liberals are RUNNING with this.
