No matter what the sentences handed down by judges for crimes the media calls for harsher penalties.
This seems always to be the case.
Why do corporate plutocrats and media moguls want harsher penalties?
They whip up fear and hatred against evil and play a dangerous blame game.
Is this just an exercise in power?
There is more to it than that.
Because they believe in the power of punishment and fear they believe that being soft on crime will lead to increased violence and robberies against them (the rich).
Any talk of rehabilitation or reform is ridiculed.
The headlines scream Burn in Hell!
Perhaps they think this will make people work harder.
Fear is a great motivator.
But fear is not the way of God.
Cry out to God and He will deliver you.
