One indirect way natural disasters increase violence is through the development of babies, children and adolescents into violence-prone adults, he said. For example, poor living conditions, disrupted families and inadequate prenatal and child nutrition are risk factors for creating violence-prone adults. Anderson and Miles-Novelo noted these risk factors will become more prevalent as a result of climate change-induced disasters, such as hurricanes, droughts, floods, water shortages and changing agricultural practices for efficient production of food.

Another indirect effect: Some natural disasters are so extensive and long term that large groups of people are forced to migrate from their homeland. We also need to plan for and devote resources to aid eco-migrants in their relocation to new lands and countries. There are no data and there is no method to estimate which of the three factors will be most damaging, Anderson said.

However, Anderson fears the third effect he and Miles-Novelo identified — eco-migration and conflict — could be the most destructive. He says we are already seeing the migration of large groups in response to physical, economic or political instability resulting from ecological disasters. The conflict in Syria is one example. Differences between migrants and the people living in areas where migrants are relocating can be a source of tension and violence, Anderson said.

As the level of such conflicts escalates, combined with the availability of weapons of mass destruction, the results could be devastating. One way to do that is to provide appropriate aid to refugees and make it easier for them to migrate to regions where they can be productive, healthy and happy. Anderson and Miles-Novelo say the purpose of their research is to raise awareness among the scientific community to work on prevention efforts or ways to limit harmful consequences.

The long-term goal is to educate the public on the potential for increased violence. By doing all these things we can reduce conflict and hostility. Changing attitudes and policies about immigration also will lessen the potential for conflict, Anderson said. He points to the backlash against refugees in many European countries. Navigating life with an addiction to alcohol or drugs can be especially difficult and exhausting. It always feels like the substance is taking over. Through treatment at an inpatient alcohol rehab or an inpatient drug rehab, life can finally be different, changing for the better.

Of course, not all rehab facilities are the same. Some offer only outpatient care. With this form of rehab, the enrollee is attending the facility but still going home to their daily life. Inpatient rehab , on the other hand, offers more comprehensive care. Finding a facility with inpatient rehabilitation for alcohol and drug addiction may have seemed impossible until now.

However, there are more options now than before. Those who want to are ready to make a change in their lives may be interested in these inpatient rehabilitation facilities. Here are several reasons inpatient care can be so significant for enrollees looking to become sober. According to data cited from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse on Alcoholism, inpatient alcohol rehab may have better sobriety rates than outpatient care. To back up that claim, alcohol rehab enrollees were tracked over five years. Of those enrollees, of them participated in outpatient rehab while the other did an inpatient program.

In the study, enrollees with intact social support systems and in better psychiatric health were proven to do equally well in an outpatient versus inpatient rehab setting. Those with weaker social support and a higher rate of mental illness did better exclusively in inpatient settings. Regardless of the social support and mental health of enrollees, the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse on Alcoholism discovered that those who were in outpatient rehab programs had a four times higher chance of relapsing into alcohol use over those in an inpatient program.

This could because those in an outpatient rehab program can keep going back to their same old haunts or toxic relationships that provide alcohol, drugs, or other addictive substances. True recovery becomes practically impossible. Those who are addicted to alcohol will not necessarily need to go through the same treatment modalities as those with a drug addiction, and vice-versa.

When a rehab facility only offers treatment for one type of addiction over another, it gets easy for an enrollee to be pigeonholed. Whether addicted to alcohol, drugs, or even both, getting the right help at inpatient rehabilitation facilities is crucial. QUality programs will provide both inpatient and outpatient care to treat addiction.

While some patients will stay at an inpatient program for 30 days, others will need more time. A quality inpatient addiction center is willing to work with those enrollees for as long as it takes to make a return to a healthy, addiction-free life. A child with more than one brother or sister is more likely to be the victim of sibling bullying than those with only one sibling, and firstborn children and older brothers tend to be the perpetrators, according to research published by the American Psychological Association.

It was published in the journal Developmental Psychology. Wolke and his co-author, Slava Dantchev, B. The researchers analyzed data from a longitudinal study of 6, British children born in either or and their mothers. They defined sibling bullying as psychological abuse e. The kids were put into four categories: victims, bully victims defined as being both a perpetrator and victim of bullying , bullies or uninvolved.

When the children were 5 years old, their mothers reported how often the children were victims or perpetrators of bullying in the household. Sibling relations were analyzed two years later when the mothers were asked how much time the children spent engaging with their siblings on various activities, such as crafts or drawing. Several years later, at age 12, the children reported if they had been bullied by a sibling or if they had bullied a sibling within the previous six months.

The boys and girls were also asked their ages when they first experienced sibling bullying and when they first bullied a sibling. Approximately 28 percent of the children in the study were involved in sibling bullying and psychological abuse was the most common form. The majority of those children were found to be bully victims, meaning they bullied and were bullied, according to the study.

This can go both ways and allows a child to be both a victim and a perpetrator of bullying. Family structure and gender were the strongest predictors of sibling bullying by middle childhood, according to the authors. Wolke and Dantchev believe bullying can happen in larger families because resources such as parental affection or attention and material goods are more limited. Although the researchers investigated whether marital and socioeconomic status would be associated with more or less bullying, they did not find any evidence. These findings may be helpful to parents as they welcome new additions to their families, Wolke said.

Success in Fighting the Opioid Epidemic Gains in the fight against the opioid epidemic have been made on several fronts. The Missing Piece — Access What most of America is sorely missing, however, is sufficient access to the addiction treatments that are the most effective — and not enough efforts are currently underway to increase such access. Policymakers, civic leaders, patient advocates, and journalists, should consider the following steps: Treatment and reimbursements should be evidence-based.

Research shows that the most effective approach is medication-assisted therapy MAT , where patients are given methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone, alongside therapy to combat addiction. Too many private payers pay for treatments based on mistaken ideas. For example, detoxification is known to be highly ineffective against opioid addiction, yet it is widely practiced and reimbursed.

Treatment for addiction needs to be ongoing and long-term, just like treatments for diabetes or heart disease. But currently most health insurance companies will only cover one treatment episode or a fixed number of treatment days per year. These are the most contemptuous things that a person can do. That is why sex crimes against nature are nameless, because even the fact of uttering them will cause revulsion, which is not so of suicide. Everyone avoids talking about these vices, and every teacher hesitates even when having a very good intention of warning his students against them.

These crimes make us ashamed that we are humans and thus able to commit them, since even an animal is not capable of sex crimes against nature. I will try to convince you that the prostitution of so-called honest women is not more dangerous than that of men. Not only may we submit women to the lusts exerted in the houses which I establish, but we must even set some up for them, where their whims and the needs for their temperament which burn differently than ours can in the same way be satisfied with them all. Second, by which other right do you claim to submit them to a self-restraint that is impossible for their physical makeup and absolutely useless to their honor?

I will answer the first of these questions, and then the other. It is certain that, in the state of nature, women are born vulguivaguous, that is, enjoying the advantages of the other female animals and, like them and without any exception, belonging to all males. Without a doubt, such were the first laws of nature and the only institutions of the first communities which men made. Private-interest, selfishness and love degraded these views, which were at first so simple and natural.

One believed to grow rich by taking a woman, and with it the good of her family. Here, then, are satisfied the first two feelings which I have just mentioned. More often still the woman was forcefully removed, and so one became attached to her. Here is the other motive for action and, in all the cases, injustice. An act of possession can never be exerted on a free being; it is as unjust to have a woman exclusively as it is to have slaves.

All men were born free and are equal in rights: never let us lose sight of these principles. Accordingly, the right can never be legitimately granted to one sex to claim the other exclusively, and one of these sexes or classes can never possess the other arbitrarily. Even in the purity of natural laws, a woman cannot appeal to the love that she has for another as a reason for refusing another who desires her. Her reasoning would involve exclusion, and no man can be excluded from the possession of a woman, since it is clear that she belongs to all men absolutely.

The act of possession can be exerted only on a building or an animal, but never on an individual who resembles us, and any supposed bonds connecting a woman with a man are as unjust as they are illusory. If we receive from nature the right to express our desires arbitrarily with all women, it then becomes undeniable that we have the right to compel her to submit to our wishes — not exclusively, though, but temporarily — otherwise I would contradict myself.

It is undeniable that we have the right to establish laws which force her to yield to the fires of he who desires her. Violence itself is one of the effects of this right, and we can employ it legally. Women futilely defend themselves by speaking of their modesty or attachment to other men. These illusory efforts are groundless.

We saw earlier how modesty is an invented and contemptible feeling. Love, which we can call the madness of the heart, does not legitimate their fidelity. Love satisfies only two individuals, the lover and the beloved, and it cannot serve the happiness of others. Women were given to us for the happiness of all, and not for an egoistic and privileged happiness.

All men thus have an equal right of pleasure with all women. Thus, according to natural law, no man can claim a unique and individual right over a woman. This law is the most equitable, and no legitimate reason or right can be claimed against it. If the laws which we establish are just, a man who wants to enjoy any woman or girl will be able to summon her to one of the houses about which I spoke. There, within this temple of Venus, under the safeguard of matrons, she will be delivered to him. Humbly and submissively, she will satisfy all the whims that will occur to him, however bizarre or irregular they may be, because all extremes are in nature and acknowledged by it.

If we admit, as we have just done, that all women must be subjected to our desires, undoubtedly we can allow them in the same way to satisfy all theirs amply. On this issue, our laws must provide for their fiery temperament. It is absurd to locate both their honor and their virtue in the unnatural force that they exert to resist the inclinations that they possess more strongly than men. This injustice of our manners is all the more blatant when we try to weaken them through seduction, yet at the same time punish them when they yield to our efforts to make them fall. It seems to me that all the nonsense of our manners is engraved in this outrageous paradox, and this short discussion should make us feel the great need to change our manners for consistency.

Thus I say that women, having received inclinations much more violent than ours with the pleasures of lust, will be able to completely devote themselves to it, absolutely released from all the bonds of virginity, of all the false prejudices of decency, and be absolutely restored to the state of nature. I want the laws to enable them to be devoted to as many men as they will have. I want them to have the pleasure of all the sexes in all the parts of their bodies, as is allowed in men.

And, under the special condition according to which they submit themselves to all those who wish, it is necessary that they have freedom to also enjoy all those which they will believe worthy to satisfy them. What, I ask, are the dangers of this freedom? What does that matter in a republic where all the individuals in the country are born of the fatherland? How much more will they appreciate their country, knowing only it, and will know from birth that it is only of their country that they must all expect things!

When we give affection only to some individuals, which should instead be divided among all their brothers, they inevitably adopt dangerous prejudices. Their opinions and ideas will be insulated and particularized, and it will become absolutely impossible for them to have all the virtues of a statesman. Devoting their hearts entirely to those who gave birth to them, they will not have any more devotion in their hearts for the things that make them live and understand, as if these benefits were less important than the first!

The best argument for separating children from their families is seen in the great disadvantage that occurs when, imbibing in their families, children frequently have interests quite different from those of the fatherland. So, there will be houses intended for the indulgence of women and, like those of men, they will be under the protection of the government.

There, individuals of both sexes will be provided with anything they wish, and the more they visit these houses, the greater they will be esteemed. There is nothing so barbaric and ridiculous than to have linked the honor and virtue of women to their resistance towards desires that they received from nature — desires which continually inflame those who so cruelly blame them. From tender ages, girls will be released from parental bonds and have nothing more to preserve for marriage completely abolished by the wise laws which I recommend.

Superior to the prejudice formerly shackling her sex, she will be able to devote herself within these created houses to all that her makeup allows. She will be received there with respect, satisfied in abundance and, when returning to society, she will speak publicly about the pleasures she tasted, just as she speaks now of a ball or promenade.

O charming sex, you will be free. Like men, you will enjoy all the pleasures that nature makes your duty. You will not commit yourselves to any. Does the divine part of humanity have to be shackled in irons of the other? Break those irons as nature wants you to do. Have nothing for a bridle than your inclinations, no other laws than your desires, no other morals than that of nature.

Do not languish longer in these cruel prejudices which faded your charms and held captive the divine impulses of your heart. Do not fear any more absurd criticism. Rigidity and superstition are destroyed. We will no longer see you blushing because of your charming delinquencies. Crowned myrtle and roses, the respect which we will have for you will be based only on your excessiveness. What has just been said should undoubtedly spare us from examining adultery. How ridiculous it was to regard it as criminal in our old institutions!

If anything in the world is absurd, it surely is the permanence of the marital bonds. It seems to me that we need to feel the heaviness of those bonds in order to stop viewing efforts to reduce them as criminal. Nature, as I said a few moments ago, has given women a more burning desire and greater sensitivity than was given to men. Undoubtedly, the burden of a permanent marriage is heavier for them than for men.

Tender women, you are set ablaze with the fire of love, and you should boldly compensate yourselves. You should persuade yourselves that there is no evil in following the impulses of nature, and that that nature did not create you for only one man, but for all men indifferently.

Let no brake stop you. Follow the Greek republicans: the legislators who made their laws never imagined adultery a crime, and almost all authorized the disorderliness of the women. In his Utopia , Thomas More argues that it is advantageous for women to be given to depravity, and the ideas of this great man were not always mere dreams. Among the Tartars, the more a woman was indecent, the more she was honored. She publicly wore necklaces indicating her impudicity, and women were not admired if they were not decorated with it.

In Peru, families gave their wives and daughters to travelers; they were rented so much per day, like horses and carriages! Volumes, finally, could be written to show that lustful activity was never regarded as criminal among wise people of the earth. All philosophers know very well that it is only Christian impostors who have established it as a crime. Priests have had good reasons for prohibiting lustful actions. By priests holding the knowledge and remission of these secret sins, this prohibition gave them an incredible power over women, and it opened a career of lechery for them that was beyond limits.

It is well-known how they benefited from it, and they would still misuse their position if they were not completely discredited. Is incest more dangerous?

Partner Intimacy Issues: Porn, Sexual Obsession, Abnormal Behavior, and Counseling

Certainly not. It is dictated to us by the primary laws of nature; we testify to it, and feel that the pleasure of the objects which belong to us are all the more delicious. The first societies support incest; we find it in their origins. It is sacred in all religions, and all laws supported it. If we travel the world, we will find incest established everywhere. The people of the Ivory Coast and Gabon prostituted their wives with their own children. The people of Chile sleep indifferently with their sisters, their daughters, and often marry mother and daughter at the same time.

I dare to say, in a word, that incest should be the law of any government whose foundation is fraternity. It would be just like saying that we should not love too much the individuals that nature commands us to love the most, and that the more nature gives us inclinations for an object, the more it orders us at the same time to move away from it! These contrarieties are absurd.

Only people bewildered by superstition can believe or adopt them. As the community of women that I establish necessarily involve incest, there remains little to be said regarding this alleged offence whose existence is too evident to dwell upon here any longer. It is undoubtedly quite painful for us to have to criticize our ancestors for the legal murders which they dared to allow on this subject.

Is it possible to be more barbaric than to condemn to death an unhappy person whose only crime is to not have the same tastes as you? I shudder to think that it has been only forty years since the absurdity of legislators was still at this point. Take comfort, citizens: such nonsense will not happen again. The wisdom of your legislators will answer for it.

Enlightened on this weakness in some men, we now see well that such an error cannot be criminal. Nature places no great importance on fluid which runs through our loins, and is not concerned if we prefer to direct it down one path or another.

What is the crime that can exist here? Undoubtedly it is not to place itself in such or such place, for no one will maintain that all the parts of the body are different, some pure and others impure. But, as it is impossible to advance such nonsense, the only alleged offence could consist in the loss of semen. However, I ask whether it is likely that semen is so invaluable in the eyes of nature that wasting it is a crime? If that were so, would she continually authorize those losses?

Could nature give us the possibility of a crime that would outrage her? Is it possible for nature to grant men the power to destroy her pleasures and thereby becoming stronger than nature? Let us rest assured that it is as easy to enjoy a woman in one manner as in another, just as it is absolutely indifferent to enjoy a woman or a man.

Let us understand that no other inclinations can exist in us except those which we have from nature; it is too wise and consistent to have put any in us that would offend her. Children of the youngest age announce this preference, and never correct themselves in it. Sometimes it is the result of desire; but, even in this case, is it any less part of nature? No matter how we look at it, it is the work of nature, and whatever she inspires must be respected by us. Men make use of them only as is absolutely necessary for having a child to replace them. The practice that men have of living together in republics will always make this vice the more frequent, but it is certainly not dangerous.

Would the legislators of Greece have introduced it into their republic if they had believed it such? Well far from this, they believed it necessary to warlike people. Plutarch speaks to us with enthusiasm about the battalion of lovers: for a long time they alone defended the freedom of Greece. This vice prevailed among brothers in arms, and it cemented them. The greatest men were inclined towards sodomy. When it was discovered, all of America was populated with people of this taste. In Louisiana, at Illinois, Indians dressed as women prostituted themselves like courtesans.

Again, there are many acts which, being directly injurious only to the agents themselves, ought not to be legally interdicted, but which, if done publicly, are a violation of good manners, and coming thus within the category of offences against others, may rightfully be prohibited. Of this kind are offences against decency [e. There is another question to which an answer must be found, consistent with the principles which have been laid down.

Fornication, for example, must be tolerated, and so must gambling; but should a person be free to be a pimp, or to keep a gambling-house? The case is one of those which lie on the exact boundary line between two principles, and it is not at once apparent to which of the two it properly belongs. There are arguments on both sides. On the side of toleration it may be said, that the fact of following anything as an occupation, and living or profiting by the practice of it, cannot make that criminal which would otherwise be admissible; that the act should either be consistently permitted or consistently prohibited; that if the principles which we have hitherto defended are true, society has no business, as society, to decide anything to be wrong which concerns only the individual; that it cannot go beyond dissuasion, and that one person should be as free to persuade, as another to dissuade.

In opposition to this it may be contended, that. There can surely, it may be urged, be nothing lost, no sacrifice of good, by so ordering matters that persons shall make their election, either wisely or foolishly, on their own prompting, as free as possible from the arts of persons who stimulate their inclinations for interested purposes of their own. There is considerable force in these arguments. I will not venture to decide whether they are sufficient to justify the moral anomaly of punishing the accessary, when the principal is and must be allowed to go free; of fining or imprisoning the procurer, but not the fornicator, the gambling-house keeper, but not the gambler.

Do you consider that such legislation as that is justifiable on principle? I do not consider it justifiable on principle, because it appears to me to be opposed to one of the greatest principles of legislation, the security of personal liberty. It appears to me that legislation of this sort takes away that security, almost entirely from a particular class of women intentionally, but incidentally and unintentionally, one may say, from all women whatever, inasmuch as it enables a woman to be apprehended by the police on suspicion and taken before a magistrate, and then by that magistrate she is liable to be confined for a term of imprisonment which may amount, I believe, to six months, for refusing to sign a declaration consenting to be examined.

Is your objection confined to the possibility of a modest woman being brought up under these Acts? That is a very great part of my objection. Although I am quite aware that the Act only authorizes the apprehension of prostitutes, still a discretion must necessarily be left in the police to prevent the entire evasion of the Act.

And I have understood that it is held by its supporters, medical men and others, that the powers must be very considerable if the Acts are not to be very seriously evaded. What number of cases there have been in which modest women, or women at any rate not prostitutes, have been apprehended by the police on suspicion, I do not know, but it appears to me that the police have that power, and that they must have the power, it is impossible to enforce the Acts unless they have the power, the Acts cannot be made really effectual unless those powers are strengthened.

But in any case it seems to me that we ought not to assume, even supposing no case of abuse has been found out as yet, that abuses will not occur. When power is given which may be easily abused, we ought always to presume that it will be abused, and although it is possible that great precautions will be taken at first, those precautions are likely to be relaxed in time.

We ought not to give powers liable to very great abuse, and easily abused, and then presume that those powers will not be abused. Do you consider it objectionable in itself that the Legislature should make provision for the periodical examination of common prostitutes who let out their bodies for hire? I think that it is objectionable. The effect of the examination which the Act requires, and similar examinations which are required in foreign countries, is said to be, and I believe with a great deal of truth, to lead to a great amount of clandestine prostitution, and the Acts therefore are not effectual unless clandestine prostitution is touched also.

To follow up that, supposing a woman had voluntarily submitted her person to examination, and her person was found to be diseased, would you consider it an unjustifiable violation of her if she was sent to hospital, and detained in the hospital against her will until she was cured? I should think the objection less strong than in the other case, but I still think it objectionable because I do not think it is part of the business of the Government to provide securities beforehand against the consequences of immoralities of any kind.

That is a totally different thing from remedying the consequences after they occur. That I see no objection to at all. I see no objection to having hospitals for the cure of patients, but I see considerable objection to consigning them to hospitals against their will.

Would your objection be modified by this consideration. It is in evidence before this Commission, and we will assume for the purpose of your answer that it is proved to your satisfaction that the contagious disease extends far beyond the guilty persons, and may be communicated to innocent wives, and be transmitted to innocent children?

A woman can only communicate it through a man; it must be the man who communicates it to innocent women and children afterwards. It seems to me, therefore, if the object is to protect those who are not unchaste, the way to do that is to bring motives to bear on the man and not on the woman, who cannot have anything to do directly with the communication of it to persons entirely innocent, whereas the man can and does. If you ask whether I think it possible to bring motives to bear on the man, I think there are various ways in which it may be done.

In the first place, the same degree of espionage which is necessary to detect women would detect also the men who go with them, because very often they are detected only by the circumstance of being seen to go into certain houses with men. In that case, if the women can be laid hold of, the men can also, and be obliged to give an account why they are there. But without the exercise of espionage on either men or women, there are other means which can be had recourse to; very severe damages in case a man is proved to have communicated this disease to a modest woman, and in the case of his wife, divorce as a matter of right; I think that a stronger case in which to apply the remedy of divorce can hardly be conceived.

Supposing for a moment that the enactment in law making it penal to communicate the disease to another person was objectionable on the ground that it would lead to extortion, and that a wife so affected would not be able to overcome all those influences which her own affections have over her to induce her not to take the extreme step of seeking divorce, what remedy would you provide for the innocent children? The evil could only reach the children through the wife.

The unborn children could only be infected by the mother being first infected. If it was proved that a man had been the means of communicating to his wife, she being a modest woman, or to his children, any of these diseases, the law should grant the woman a divorce, and compel the man in proportion to his means to pay very heavy damages to them for their support apart from himself. That, in my opinion, is what the law ought to do in the case. You do not see your way to any improved legislation, for instance, with reference to brothels?

That is a different question and a very difficult one. The question of the regulation of brothels, whether they should be systematically put down, or let alone to a certain degree, enters into very wide reaching considerations as to the degree in which the law should interfere in questions of simple morality, and also how far it should attack one portion of the persons who conspire to do a particular act, while it tolerates the others. I have always felt it very difficult to lay down a general rule on the subject, and I am not prepared to do so now, but I do not think it material to the consideration of these Acts.

Would you leave those women to rot and die under the hedges, rather than pass such Acts as these to save them?

Smartphones Help UB Researcher Better Understand the Nature of Depression and Anxiety

I do not think it is quite fair to put the question exactly in that manner, because I am inclined to think that I should approve very much more decided measures of that sort with regard to the destitute classes generally than are now in practice. I should say, if you found a person in this last stage of consumption, or any other very wretched disease, it might be advisable and right to lay hold of that person and give him or her relief or proper medical treatment, and under proper medical regulation, and whatever relief of that sort I gave to others I would give to these women.

What I object to is having special legislation for those women, which would have the effect of singling them out for a special cure, to which persons with other equally bad diseases are not subject. I was going to ask you up to what age you would think the State would be justified in interfering to prevent prostitution? I should think certainly up to 17 or 18, up to the age when what is commonly called education ordinarily finishes. Possibly it might be extended with propriety until the girl was legally of age, but on that I would not undertake to give an opinion.

Do you think it any interference with the liberty of the subject to prevent solicitation in the streets? No; I think that is the duty of the police, in order to preserve the order of the streets. In your opinion, if the laws in existence against seduction and bastardy and in other respects were strengthened and made of real practical use, would it have a tendency to diminish prostitution? I do not know whether it would have a tendency to reduce prostitution, but that is not the only thing to be considered, because it might have a tendency to increase other kinds of illicit intercourse.

When the laws relating to bastardy made a greater attempt to enforce the obligation upon the seducer than is the case now, they did produce very demoralizing effects upon many women. I do not mean to give an express opinion as to how far the law might properly go on that subject. He thinks that since it has not been reformed up to this day it never can be. This is the true conservative stand point. Whatever reforms have been already effected are well enough; if they were effected long enough ago, they are even excellent. As to any reforms in the future, though they might be desirable in themselves, they are sure to bring with them greater evils than they can remove ; and then come those jeremiads more or less eloquent and touching, which we are so accustomed to in politics and morals, about the fearful consequences to society of attempting to do anything that has not been done already.

It would be hardly possible to support any opinion by flimsier reasons than these particular ones of Mr. Are we to consider what the Church accomplished in the middle ages as the extreme limit of the moral improvement possible to mankind? It is of more importance, however, to consider Mr. He considers prostitution as a safety valve to prevent the propensity to which it ministers from producing worse evils. I think it most probable that this particular passion will become with men, as it is already with a large number of women, completely under the control of the reason.

It has become so with women because its becoming so has been the condition upon which women hoped to obtain the strongest love and admiration of men. The gratification of this passion in its highest form, therefore, has been, with women, conditional upon their restraining it in its lowest. It has not yet been tried what the same conditions will do for men. I believe they will do all that we wish, nor am I alone in thinking that men are by nature capable of as thorough a control over these passions as women are.

I have known eminent medical men, and lawyers of logical mind, of the same opinion. But, in the second place, supposing that Mr Lecky is right in thinking, as he apparently does, that men are not capable of efficient control over this propensity, I should still differ from him when he thinks that prostitution is the best safety valve.

I, on the contrary, think that with the exception of sheer brutal violence, there is no greater evil that this propensity can produce than prostitution. Of all modes of sexual indulgence, consistent with the personal freedom and safety of women, I regard prostitution as the very worst; not only on account of the wretched women whose whole existence it sacrifices, but because no other is anything like so corrupting to the men. In no other is there the same total absence of even a temporary gleam of affection and tenderness; in no other is the woman to the man so completely a mere thing used simply as a means, for a purpose which to herself must be disgusting.

Moreover so far from thinking with Mr Lecky that prostitution is a safeguard even to the virtuous women, I think it cuts at the core of happiness in marriage, since it gives women a feeling of difference and distance between themselves and their husbands, and prevents married people from having frank confidence in one another. The fact I believe to be, that prostitution seems the only resource to those and to those only, who look upon the problem to be solved to be, how to allow the greatest license to men consistently with retaining a sufficient reserve or nursery of chaste women for wives.

Their problem is not, as yours and mine is, how to obtain the greatest amount of chastity and happiness for men, women, and children. Marriage has not had a fair trial. When marriage under these conditions and with such means of legal relief in extreme cases as may be adopted when men and women have an equal voice shall have been tried and failed, it will be time to look out for something else: but that this something else, whatever it may be, will be better than prostitution, is my confirmed conviction. Alan Smithee; Philosophy in the Bedroom , Dialogue 5, tr. Alan Smithee. For Hume, why is polygamy harmful to society?

For Hume, why is voluntary divorce harmful to society? For Hume, why should unfaithful women not be publically shamed? For Kant, why is sexual desire without true human love so bad? For Kant, how does sex constitute a union between partners within a marriage? For Kant, why are masturbation, homosexuality and bestiality sex crimes against nature?

De Sade describes special houses of prostitution that should be set up. How would these houses operate? Aquinas believes that sex among infertile couples is permissible, even if it cannot result in procreation. Give his rationale for this and say whether you agree. Aquinas presents four arguments against divorce.

Discuss problems that you might find with his argument. A critic of Aquinas might argue that we regularly use our bodies for purposes other than their naturally-intended function e.

  • Using Matrice Operations Solve the word Problem;
  • TYPHOON (Japanese Edition).

Similarly, Kant argues that any use of the sexual inclinations, except within marriage, is an abuse and thus a sex crime against nature that places us lower than animals. How might you defend premarital sex with contraception against Aquinas and Kant? Hume argues that marriage agreements are not defined by nature, but can potentially be as flexible as any mutual contract between people. Explain his position and whether you agree. Kant describes the union that sex brings to a marriage that is founded on true love, and any other type of sexual activity is degrading.

Does Kant have a realistic view of true love and union within marriage Kant himself was never married? Aquinas and De Sade both discuss whether nature cares about non-procreative emission of semen. Explain their respective views and say which side you agree with. Anderson says the first route is the most direct: higher temperatures increase irritability and hostility, which can lead to violence. The other two are more indirect and stem from the effects of climate change on natural disasters, failing crops and economic instability.

A natural disaster, such as a hurricane or wildfire, does not directly increase violence, but the economic disruption, displacement of families and strain on natural resources that result are what Anderson finds problematic. One indirect way natural disasters increase violence is through the development of babies, children and adolescents into violence-prone adults, he said.

For example, poor living conditions, disrupted families and inadequate prenatal and child nutrition are risk factors for creating violence-prone adults. Anderson and Miles-Novelo noted these risk factors will become more prevalent as a result of climate change-induced disasters, such as hurricanes, droughts, floods, water shortages and changing agricultural practices for efficient production of food. Another indirect effect: Some natural disasters are so extensive and long term that large groups of people are forced to migrate from their homeland.

  8. We also need to plan for and devote resources to aid eco-migrants in their relocation to new lands and countries. There are no data and there is no method to estimate which of the three factors will be most damaging, Anderson said. However, Anderson fears the third effect he and Miles-Novelo identified — eco-migration and conflict — could be the most destructive.

    He says we are already seeing the migration of large groups in response to physical, economic or political instability resulting from ecological disasters. The conflict in Syria is one example. Differences between migrants and the people living in areas where migrants are relocating can be a source of tension and violence, Anderson said.

    As the level of such conflicts escalates, combined with the availability of weapons of mass destruction, the results could be devastating. One way to do that is to provide appropriate aid to refugees and make it easier for them to migrate to regions where they can be productive, healthy and happy. Anderson and Miles-Novelo say the purpose of their research is to raise awareness among the scientific community to work on prevention efforts or ways to limit harmful consequences. The long-term goal is to educate the public on the potential for increased violence.

    By doing all these things we can reduce conflict and hostility. Changing attitudes and policies about immigration also will lessen the potential for conflict, Anderson said. He points to the backlash against refugees in many European countries. Navigating life with an addiction to alcohol or drugs can be especially difficult and exhausting. It always feels like the substance is taking over. Through treatment at an inpatient alcohol rehab or an inpatient drug rehab, life can finally be different, changing for the better.

    Of course, not all rehab facilities are the same. Some offer only outpatient care. With this form of rehab, the enrollee is attending the facility but still going home to their daily life. Inpatient rehab , on the other hand, offers more comprehensive care. Finding a facility with inpatient rehabilitation for alcohol and drug addiction may have seemed impossible until now. However, there are more options now than before. Those who want to are ready to make a change in their lives may be interested in these inpatient rehabilitation facilities.

    Here are several reasons inpatient care can be so significant for enrollees looking to become sober. According to data cited from the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse on Alcoholism, inpatient alcohol rehab may have better sobriety rates than outpatient care. To back up that claim, alcohol rehab enrollees were tracked over five years. Of those enrollees, of them participated in outpatient rehab while the other did an inpatient program.

    In the study, enrollees with intact social support systems and in better psychiatric health were proven to do equally well in an outpatient versus inpatient rehab setting. Those with weaker social support and a higher rate of mental illness did better exclusively in inpatient settings. Regardless of the social support and mental health of enrollees, the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse on Alcoholism discovered that those who were in outpatient rehab programs had a four times higher chance of relapsing into alcohol use over those in an inpatient program.

    This could because those in an outpatient rehab program can keep going back to their same old haunts or toxic relationships that provide alcohol, drugs, or other addictive substances. True recovery becomes practically impossible. Those who are addicted to alcohol will not necessarily need to go through the same treatment modalities as those with a drug addiction, and vice-versa. When a rehab facility only offers treatment for one type of addiction over another, it gets easy for an enrollee to be pigeonholed.

    Whether addicted to alcohol, drugs, or even both, getting the right help at inpatient rehabilitation facilities is crucial. QUality programs will provide both inpatient and outpatient care to treat addiction. While some patients will stay at an inpatient program for 30 days, others will need more time. A quality inpatient addiction center is willing to work with those enrollees for as long as it takes to make a return to a healthy, addiction-free life.

    A child with more than one brother or sister is more likely to be the victim of sibling bullying than those with only one sibling, and firstborn children and older brothers tend to be the perpetrators, according to research published by the American Psychological Association. It was published in the journal Developmental Psychology. Wolke and his co-author, Slava Dantchev, B. The researchers analyzed data from a longitudinal study of 6, British children born in either or and their mothers. They defined sibling bullying as psychological abuse e.

    The kids were put into four categories: victims, bully victims defined as being both a perpetrator and victim of bullying , bullies or uninvolved. When the children were 5 years old, their mothers reported how often the children were victims or perpetrators of bullying in the household. Sibling relations were analyzed two years later when the mothers were asked how much time the children spent engaging with their siblings on various activities, such as crafts or drawing.

    Several years later, at age 12, the children reported if they had been bullied by a sibling or if they had bullied a sibling within the previous six months. The boys and girls were also asked their ages when they first experienced sibling bullying and when they first bullied a sibling. Approximately 28 percent of the children in the study were involved in sibling bullying and psychological abuse was the most common form. The majority of those children were found to be bully victims, meaning they bullied and were bullied, according to the study.

    This can go both ways and allows a child to be both a victim and a perpetrator of bullying. Family structure and gender were the strongest predictors of sibling bullying by middle childhood, according to the authors. Wolke and Dantchev believe bullying can happen in larger families because resources such as parental affection or attention and material goods are more limited.

    Although the researchers investigated whether marital and socioeconomic status would be associated with more or less bullying, they did not find any evidence. These findings may be helpful to parents as they welcome new additions to their families, Wolke said. Developmental Psychology. Published online Feb.

Success in Fighting the Opioid Epidemic Gains in the fight against the opioid epidemic have been made on several fronts. The Missing Piece — Access What most of America is sorely missing, however, is sufficient access to the addiction treatments that are the most effective — and not enough efforts are currently underway to increase such access.

    Policymakers, civic leaders, patient advocates, and journalists, should consider the following steps: Treatment and reimbursements should be evidence-based. Research shows that the most effective approach is medication-assisted therapy MAT , where patients are given methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone, alongside therapy to combat addiction. Too many private payers pay for treatments based on mistaken ideas.
