Why is the U.S. and S. Korea the only countries with a public registry? Maybe we have too much democracy. Even if we can educate lawmakers of the craziness of the registry, they are beholden to the voters, who are not educated. European countries also are democratic and no not have this problem and use much shorter prison terms for the same crimes. Maybe it is because we are too evangelical, and sex is considered immoral. Many say that the french have a much more healthy attitude towards sex.
Also, I wonder whether republicans or democrats are worse at passing and enforcing S.O. laws. I cannot vote, but have influence on some who do. I have assumed that republicans are more in favor of these laws because more are evangelicals. Please comment.
