Well, the IRS certainly does...

e " A bye law in the 1630's prohibited "any suddaine outcry in the still of the night such as beating a wife to the disturbance of his neighbours" Seems that beating a wife was quite acceptable, but her cries of pain and anguish were unacceptable
I can't understand why they couldn't train their wives better, as in "don't complain whn I beat you or I will beat you more".
Just because you disagree with me don't make you right.
So - What's the difference?

You're right, we're moving back to the Middle Ages at a fair rate of knots. A good example is that having kept the unwashed masses under the heel for forty years, they buy a mobile phone, download Twitter and start not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, but six revolutionary disturbances called The Arab Spring. Thousands die and the new fundamentalist Arab Brotherhood will soon be installing 14th century Sharia law.
The Middle Ages is now being installed in Greece, thousands of illegal immigrants from everywhere are descending/have descended, on Greece, no money, no food, no shelter, living in the centre of Athens, different gangs attacking each other and Athenians trying to make a living being assaulted in daytime, and the city at night, its now Mad Max Land. No cops, no money to pay them, no army, sitting in barracks playing cards.
Not quite as bad in Spain, yet, but despite what they say, almost 50% unemployment. no money to buy anything, people starving and two feet away from a revolution and telling the EU to er "go away " As Franco died some time ago it is not expected another Inquisition will be suggested in Spain, but the odds are that given half a chance a Court of Inquisition would be installed outside the German Chancellery in Berlin
Thank goodness for free comunication. Thank goodness for education and freedom from ignorance. Thank goodness for years rather than decades or centuries to be needed for change.
The whole world has changed in the last twenty years, and very much for the better. G0GQK uses a general ironical approach, where what he says is in fact opoposite to his belief. I am not sure that this is perceived by too many.
Watch out those who suppress and opress. It will not be the same for you. It may take a while yet to happen, but it will. Look at Burma.
I was born long enough ago to have at least witnessed at a distance, and sometimes not at a disance, how the hegemony (there's a Sunday word) enables stealing from, browbeating and abusing so many individuals, familes, peoples and whole nations. This will all change. The voiceless invisible now have presence and voice.
The middles ages are retreating fast.
If you find something you cannot do, start doing it. Pretty soon you will find how you are doing some of it wrong and put that right. After a while, you will find you are doing it all right. Advice given to me by Lynn L. Augspurger in 1978, who sadly died January 2013.

There is no need ever to ask "How old is civilization?". The answer is alaways 16 years. If, by that age, a generation has not taken in civiized values, civilization is lost. It will not be passed on.
