Obviously only a person who worships the State like you do would dissemble and try to divert the issue, which is that it’s the individual victim who wants her rapist set free.

And you — who don’t even have standing, except on the Communist premise that a crime against one is a crime against all — wants punishment where the actual, real-life, and sole victim wants none.

Maybe you’re not a Communist. Maybe you’re just so incapable of reason that you don’t even understand the communist principles you’re using to argue.

The idea that the State, as the representative of all citizens, has a moral obligation to punish crime against individuals goes back thousands of years, long before Marx was born or Communism was floated as the worst idea of the 19th century.

Do you seriously contend that anybody who is able to pay or bully the victim into an unwillingness to press charges should go unprosecuted?

Should rape of children be allowed if the rapist is rich enough to buy off the victims?

I find your theory that the idea that criminals should be prosecuted for their crimes is Communist to be quite amusing.

Got any more good ones?
