i think your last paragraph sums up the issue best. i see what you mean that the person’s life will be destroyed & won’t learn anything but the ruling/steep penalty is also meant to demonstrate the severity of such false allegations to the rest of society. It sets a standard that the behavior won’t be tolerated, which in turn strengthens any legal cases of legitimate rape & helps to protect people from defamatory comments in the future.
thus the “lesson” isn’t so much meant for the accused, but also others who may have potentially tossed around false allegations of (any crime) with no regard for the consequences.

oh i agree completely. i waited from like 1:30 on and then was absolutely crushed by the weight of ‘em all. just saying it’s irrelevant to the strokes performance.
it seems like the negativities you throw around in your dissection of the Strokes e.g. “so thoroughly populated with bros” or “every faux-aloof thing Julian did that kinda bugged me” or “it comes off as more of a lack of charisma, or a fundamental disengagement from what they’re doing” are more a reflection on your own perception of reality than any genuine flaw in the strokes performance.

oh man, i think Tranquilize has got to be one of, if not the best.
