It's the way they are raised and taught: The idea —in their minds— amounts to deprivation.
.
In so-called 'public school,' everyone gets punished for the act of a single actor in the hopes that someone will come forward and rat on that actor.
.
I did some research on the matter, and it —the idea— arrives from the U.S. Army, where some dictatorial bastard decided to punish a whole company of soldiers for that act of a single soldier. And as I looked further, it stems from the Roman legions themselves where whole towns were decimated predicated upon an act conducted by just one actor.
.
It's amazing how it is that —in the historical context— idiots seem never to grasp an idea properly, and end up misconstruing it endlessly.
.
So, we find ourselves where we are, because of inveterate ignorance. Nothing new there ... relatively speaking.
