Reply To: Audio link: Registries do more harm than good

Michael KuehlSC

The regnant and seminal force that created and sustains this mass-psychosis and hysteria and “moral panic” and witch-hunt is feminist ideology -CSA victimologists are almost all feminists and progressive/left-liberals- in alliance with the anti-sex Christian right. This “unholy alliance” of people and groups that hate each other in most ways and the need of politicians, democrat and republican, to pander to them for votes explains the enactment of these draconian/Orwellian laws and punishments for sex-offenders, even first-offenders convicted of nonviolent and mala prohibita crimes that are legal acts in dozens of other nations, including European countries.

As neither an hysterical anti-sex feminist or an hysterical anti-sex Christian, I think it more likely that Trump would appoint judges and SC justices whose rulings would abolish or at least mollify and limit the punitive and repressive nature of the public registry and other draconian/Orwellian punishments. But I’m not optimistic, no matter who is the next president..
