Actually you defended it as some kind of lesson about life.
The kids in question here didnt know that it was fake and harmless so it scared the crap out of them and gave them a new perspective on life...which is likely the reaction the teacher was looking for in the first place. Isnt that the whole reason for such programs as Scared Straight? ... I can certainly empathize with why he did what he did.
Using psyops to frighten people into behaving the way you want them to is a time-honored statist method of mind control. What kind of sick control freak would think that's acceptable?
“Actually you defended it as some kind of lesson about life.”
Sorry wrong again.... The term I used to describe it was “Empathize”
Look it up moron. Its not a defense argument. :D
