Would you like to go back to a time where girls who got in trouble had to go away to "visit relatives"? The 1950s values are nothing to write home about. Societal values change over time. As I wrote in other threads, 200 years ago, people thought slavery was fine, that it was allright to treat children as property, that women had no right to vote/own property etc. Those were traditions at that point. I am sure there were people like you back then who bemoaned those changes. Hell, let's go back further into the past. Women were stoned for adultery (still happens in Islamic world). Those are their traditions and they force personal responsibility on people. Would you like that traditional system?
