The link between high standard of living and absence of violent crimes is tenuous but true for s ...

You can't say that there are no crimes in any religious society. Religious tenets are merely used as tools to fool people into submission. They too, have their strict adherence to mete out cruel and dehumanizing punishment when people break the rules. True, they have ways to behave and carry out religious duties, but they are a system in itself, and in some cultures their crime and punishment are no less severe than non religious societies.

Absolutely - at least your first sentence: The U.S.A. is a society out of balance..."

No wonder there's gun violence almost every other day. And since guns are not cannons, they are easy to conceal and handle which make for a devastatingly quick and killing device. It follows that if one is allowed to use such powerful weapons, laws must also be enacted to show that if you misuse them and not out of self protection, you'll be served justice that may include capital punishment. Not to say that other means to take a life is less serious, but guns can cause multiple deaths simultaneously, and so capital punishment must be enforced if one goes on a shooting spree.

Rehab works with the majority of them; why do you expect it to work with everyone? IT is not rat ...

well the incurable crims are normally the ones that should be executed. I have slightly changed my stance on execution after reading posts on here related to it, but remember the worst of the worst have no right taking away the rights of their victims, so they cant expect theirs to be kept.
People like the Yorkshire ripper, and ian brady have been inside jail for 40 or 50 years in the uk for committing horrible crimes, but have no chance of release. they are simply too dangerous. Ian Brady even took the government to court 3 yrs ago asking for his immediate execution. He of course lost the case, and remains hooked to tubes in a hospital which are force feeding him to keep him alive!!
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

Yes, the "West" is more civilised than the rest, and by "West" I mean Europe minus the U.S.A.

...

The west is europe and America. America is the extension of European value to more extreme due to inadequate control from the less established yet European dominant culture there.  If America were not part of the west, which side should it be allocated to, north, south?  Can't be the east right?

According to my search, the lowest crime and homicide rate also happens in the more affluent East Asian area, not in Europe. Of all the ethnic groups in America, East Asians have the lowest crime rate,  way below their representation in the population.  Chinese believe in the inevitable +ve and -ve sides from any event. I am always happy to be enlightened by the bright side from misinformation.

The ultimate goal for personal interest is to sustain the existence of consciousness, our will for survival and reproduction revolves around that goal.  The west seems to take on more of an outward and aggressive approach to attain such goal, resulting in your strength in system building to keep man's anti-societal traits under control, hence the respect for law and advancement in technologies.

By comparison, the east takes on more of an inward and reserved approach to guard off traits less desirable for the society's interest from within in the DNA level, hence topping the chart of life span(ie longer existence of consciousness), IQ(more intelligence), low crime rate (less violence and cruelty) on a much lower cost of resources . So it's well supported by facts to say that the east is more advanced on the path of becoming more humane and less animal like.  Our more streamlined less prominent facial features, more placid and compliant personality, milder body scent,  are all more supportive of a unity oriented society.  Unity is power. our system can accommodate more ppl to live at ease with each other on the base of same resources consumption.  In that regard, the survival system supporting the east is rightful to be regarded as more civilized and more enduring for the test of time, ie wiser.  The very fact that our civilization has lasted for several thousand years on a smoother course with much less reliance on religion is self-proving that our reliance on innate strength works better than relying on outside aid.  

The west seems more powerful and influencial for the time being.  Rich tycoons could also seem more powerful and influencial for their time.
