    It's like an infection spreading.

    According to the research, violence can actually be treated like a disease, and it responds to treatment like a disease.

    Social, heck--legal. People have had their children taken away for giving them the freedom the parents had as children. Mind you, some parents who are just parenting the way they were parented are continuing a cycle of abuse, but that's not what I'm talking about.

    Yup. I was a "latchkey kid" as the term went at the time. I walked (in the dark) to the bus, walked home from the bus. No home pickups, no supervision, no one home. Today that would be considered child negligence. I'd be chipped.
