I live in a different world than you do. I no longer believe this whatsoever. From the time I was a probation officer and I ran the sex offender’s treatment group with a roomful of men who ranged from victims to predators. From the time I spent at the hands of predators, I have come to understand that it is this fundamental belief that allows so many more of us to be harmed.
It’s the enablers. The people who will allow a Trump to lead, because aww, shucks, he has an essential humanity. While he breaks and kills children in custody, allowing many to be further accessed through overcrowded, warehouses for children. The people who allowed Reagan to cut welfare to get the mythical welfare queen resulting in people like myself and my siblings ending up in foster care. This is another variant of Dunning-Kruger effect. The good people are all worried they are bad, so they are allowing the bad people to really hurt a lot of us. It’s how rape culture survives. It’s how child brides are still happening in the United States as men take them to Missouri at 12 years old.
