...sight I meant authoritarian as authoritian
not the political system..
Human beings have and need authority figures..
Yes, but questioning authority is very useful.
I am not saying that we should brainwash children or make everyone
That is a bit of modern propaganda you have been feed.
They did question authority
The individual should.
students and other teachers did question teatchers
in the entire victorian era.
But they did so within their system.
they still had authority figures..
Questioning authority isn't mutually exclusive with having authority.
the current school system has abolish the authorative figure
I haven't been in school for quite a while.
I remember seeing peers spanked bare bottom in front of the whole class.
Teacher would keep a paddle on the wall near the door.
oh the old days..
are you that old?
From a rural town. So they probably were a bit resistant to change.
we need some of that BACK
And yeah, I'm probably much older than most of the people who use discord.
The physical punnishment is wrong.
But you dont actually need to get rid of the authority figure
It helped form my anti-authoritarian beliefs.
Teachers can be authority figures without resorting to violence
I agree. And they should.
I actually come from a savage private school.
When I got into a modern school
I was so fucking gratefull
and I hated my spoiled fucking peers
because they didn't appriciate it
My first reaction was actually that I wanted the teachers to be more authoritarian
to the other students who misbehaved
the problem with FREE schools.
is that the kids who are assholes
are not punnished.
I mostly just want to see the law applied even handedly and not selectively.
the problem with asshole school
is that everyone are punnished collectively all the time
(and for all consensual crimes to be legal)
Maybe I am a libertarian.
I consider myself very libertarian as well.
Collective punishment seems useful in the military I guess?
but I think society needs to be mix of the power we give to authorities
and the freedrom we demand for ourselves.
I dont think so.
I think collective punishment just damage the group morale
