Gary, your link didn't work so I googled it and found another one, I think it's the same article:http://subzinfo.wordpress.com/2012/06/23/32-year-old-mom-sentenced-to-jail-for-incest-with-son/
indeed. I feel for that kid.
“I don’t feel like I should have the charge of incest because there is something called genetic attraction that is a very powerful (phenomenon) that happens to 50 (percent) of people becoming reunited with a long-lost relative.”
I managed to keep my anger in check after reading that, but rationalizations of the kind seem to have no bounds. No guilt, no shame, no remorse. Scary and disturbing.
The ratio of good to bad people in this world will always be tipped in favor of the latter. Always. But that ratio in your own social circle, you can control. And there, and only there, can the balance be favorably tipped, so that those who love you far outnumber those who don't.
