Here's one thing that I found disturbing about your analogy. Earlier in the thread you said:

OK. So our society is f*cked up the way it is because we don't punish people enough and the punishments don't fit the crimes. We must have been living in a Golden Age back in the day when life really did mean Life. Floggings, hangings, public executions. Oh joy! Wasn't society so much better back then?

Talk about putting a bandaid on a festering wound that hasn't even been cleaned out. Sorry dude, but your analogy is typical of the tripe spouted by politicians. It's like a doctor who treats surface symptoms, but doesn't bother to look for an underlying cause of an illness. Criminal tendencies don't f*ck up society. They are symptoms of a society that is already f*cked up.

You can punish the "surface symptoms" all you like. We've been doing it for centuries and nothing has changed. Mean while the real dis-ease goes untreated.
Another 'great miss'.
