  • "It will go away, no harm done" is your stance? Well, there is harm done, if not only on the societies feeling of sanity and security. What was the purpose of that action? To seed shock and "ruffle some feathers", sow disbalance under the coat of "shaking sleeping people up".

    "No harm done"? Well, then let me waterboard you, hit you, hit your wife and children. The blue specks will go away, no harm done. Your psychological effects? They will go away, seek therapy. You're still less affected people than the society.

    Of course this was sarcasm. But think about what stance you just took and reflect.

    This study from 2023 states:

    Global context As already outlined, one of the main findings of the Index is that levels of criminality are increasing worldwide, while resilience measures are falling short of meeting the threat. That critical gap, between growing levels of global criminality and the sustainable policy and civil society measures needed to address it, is widening. This deficit can be better understood when analyzed against the backdrop of a more fragmented and unstable global order."

    They also offer a 246 page PDF detailing their findings.

    More on the issuer on Wikipedia.

  • Personally I think it is much more likely the potesters did something wrong and/or illegal (like demanding another Intifada, which so called pro Palestine demonstrations often do). Police force would probably prefer a day off or doing something less dangerous than intervening.

  • People and parents bringing their children to such a kind of demonstration are willingly endangering them. Why do they bring their kids? It is irresponsible and in bad faith. Maybe because they know they can later pull the "oh noes, they hurt my poor child" card.

  • Sounds to me like the "powerful speeches" contained something which is forbidden in your country, forcing the police to act. Maybe Hamas propaganda? Israel should be removed from the map?

  • Hm, it also depends on the need to fill out a survey. Usually, I assume, if everything is alright, people would be less inclined to fill out a survey than when they feel the impulse to vocalize their needs. So when things do not run well, I assume one would get more negative reviews. This also skews statistics...

    Nevertheless it seems to me people feel less safe and thus are inclined to voice this, which results in a more negative outcome. So, yes, I assume things feel worse, backed by the survey results and the need to attend a survey at all.

    If the feeling is detached from the objective statistics is a more difficult question because also how crime statistics are created. For example the situation of no justicial force at all, therefore no one there to handle crime situations and reports, therefore officially no crime, because none can be and none have been measured.

    And like I said in another post, if society feels unsafe this is probably equally bad or even worse than the actual crime levels. A terrified society with no actual crimes is more disfunctional than a society which is wholesome and happy but everyday some people get robbed or stabbed. In the latter case society still "works" and is functional, in the former everything gets "tainted" with serious effects on mental health, expenses and productivity, alongside with social interactions and the overall feeling of cohesion.

    1. I was referring to the line "Crime increasing in the past 5 years" which reads to me not being felt. I don't know if you just overlooked it.

    2. Even if it's only FELT, a society living in constant terror is functional and desirable because... why?

    3. How would you restore faith to a shaken society full of fears ("high fears" in above sources) of becoming a victim of crime?

  • Society has objectively gotten less violent. Morality and ethics are subjective, so I’m not going to touch on those. Every violent crime metric is, year over year, decreasing, and it’s not because of the boot on our collective necks.

    I don't know where you get your violence crime metric from but it differs from my sources, which all over the board indicate an increase of crime in the last 5 years: https://www.numbeo.com/crime/country_result.jsp?country=France
