It has always been that way, the social restraints are what are
comming undone.  People did not want their names assocated with a
court case.  Also vilonece was also more common to settle the mater.

The UN(spit) has never had the good grace to do nothing, it would be a
major improvement over what they do.  They are not stupid they are
fucking evil.

"We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to
form into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that
we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it
can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion,
inefficiency and demoralization."
-Gaius Petronius, 1st Century AD
