----I don't do research on my responses; it is knowledge that I have somehow retained. I have a diploma, but not a library of the works involved in obtaining it. If you backtrack to, say, the first half of the previous century, you would find such tranquility. My own community was shocked by a murder 50 years back, and had to research the previous one. Now they seem to occur weekly.

----The dam would be a metaphorical restraint, such restraint being applied to socially destructive conduct.







(Syntactical note: You mean "widely banned."
>You banish a person, you ban a practice.)




----Oops, I guess I do still have my dictionary. "Banish":to get rid of, as in "consign to the scrap heap".

----not set free toward, set free from. In this case, most specifically, boys set free from corporal punishment

----you're using a reverse analogy. (e.g.,stating that all heroin users started out on marijuana, in order to attempt to discredit marijuana. In fact, at least 90% of marijuana users---'retained knowledge" again---reject heroin. ) There is no claim that every child today is a murderer. Character flaws very in each individual.




In brief, I am offering, based on chronology (related order/timing of occurrence), a cause and effect relationship
between restrictions on discipline, and lack of restraint in conduct.
