    The subject must want to be redeemed to start on a successful path to redemption, thatís the first element. Since we do not have your much mentioned reeducation camps here (and they do serve a purpose besides actual reeducation by striking fear into the hearts of everyone) the best we can do is socially censor.


    Social Censure, or what I think of as shaming, itís so often denigrated yet here we are, shaming. Because casting shame is the tool each one of us has when we are out and about in society.


    With the word ďracist ď being flung around with impunity it is difficult to always know when that is a truthful label.I always think that itís good to have these bad actors out there acting openly because they show us who they are and we know what to look out for.

    Social censure/shaming is a very useful tool for certain behaviors.

    The idea that Trump is in any way superior lends itself to paroxysms of irony.
