I think that it's sad, but this self righteousness arises out of an illusion of consciousness. We perceive ourselves to have free will, which is false. We're ultimately governed by the same forces that pull a rock down a hill.

And that's precisely why rape is considered to be so abhorrent by normal people; the absolute control by the rapist over his victim.

I'm quite concerned that you've repeatedly shown by your anti-social comments here that you appear to be suffering from some sort of psychopathic disorder. You apparently have no empathy for the victims of crime, and defend the actions of the perpetrators by claiming that humans have no free will and are virtual robots.

I've never read so much metaphysical-existentialist bullshit in one place as what I saw in your first post. Please seek medical intervention.

Brock Turner sounds like stage name for a B grade actor.

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Sounds like the name of some super rich, entitled frat boy from a prestigious college...oh wait, that's exactly what he was.

RE: I feel bad for Brock Turner
A 21 year old male who is a fan of Camus and sympathizes with a rapist....

I don't disagree that the universe is deterministic and lacking in intrinsic meaning. Nor do I necessarily disagree with the idea that a lot of society is superficial and concerned with very silly things. However your post comes across as crass and borderline sociopath. It also smacks of immaturity and star-in-eyes idealism.

You jump from "society is silly and has to create outgroups" and "the universe is deterministic" to "we should not create systems that penalize those who do wrong." This is an issue for philosophers and it is valid. I tend to view human decision making as an algorithm. Potential outcomes, including punishment, are inputs that affect the behaviours of people even if we can't "choose" things. There needs to be this input to deter and influence behaviour. Not all people are wired the same way, and some are less inclined to empathy. There needs to be another input for these people that would deter them from actions which would hurt others.

I feel no sympathy for Brock because he knew that he was hurting someone. He knew what he was doing was wrong. And he did it anyway. The stripping of privileges is completely just. This woman has had her life upset terribly. The fact that you don't seem to take that into account is worrisome.

But it gets worse. As the victim of sexual assault I am well aware of the way our society treats victims and perpetrators. And let's just say, the victims of sexual assault are not treated well. He not only intended to rape her, but he then re-victimized her through the next year. And you have no sympathy for her. This is distressing.

So I fully sympathize with those who have gone after you. But I do also understand that you are young and male.

RE: I feel bad for Brock Turner
Just to refresh people's memories...

Part of Mittens introductory post reads; "I don't consider myself very smart. I haven't finished a year of college after 4 years and 3 tries. I am unemployed and extremely unmotivated. I'm lonely and depressed...".

Pretty well sums up what this loser's all about. Sad really.
