Do you agree with this statement? Anyone who manipulates the weak deserves punishment.

I get that the powerful always judge the weak, but there's something unfair about it. How about the powerful put some effort in, too?

No. Controlling people is sometimes justified.

Hmm, there are some minor cases where I 'might' let it slide or perhaps extraordinary circumstances where the ends justify the means.

Mostly I think we should treat them like witches back in the day and burn them. Jokes aside, they deserve very harsh punishment imo.

The definition of weak and manipulation is so very vague. Difficult to give a proper answer.

Nah, punishment is ineffective compared to other methods of correction, and only leaves you feeling like shit in the end. So, yeah, I'm not answering the premise of your topic here, which I have a really hard time wrapping my head around, anyway.

And so I erred on the less absolute side.

Right. I mean, strictly speaking, forcing your 4 year old child to go to bed is "manipulating the weak".

I went shitlord side--you did better than I did. I lack effort on these topics given no effort. Probably time to get some sleep at this rate.

Punishment just happens; it's not owed or not justified it simply is.
