A reader asks (edited & paraphrased):
After a cathartic 13-day vacation I see the world differently. If questions might sound frivolous, they are sincere.
What is the purpose of unsolved murders? Does it not matter who did it, but it's up to perpetrators to answer to God for their involvement?
What about unresolved financial crimes? Why are not regulators overhauled? Victims were left penniless in retirement (one lost $30 million). Where is the justice? What is the purpose?
Today there is discussion about untaught history. The worst maritime disaster (not the Titanic), undiscussed plagues (sweating or dancing plague and others) & untaught massacres in the U.S. (against blacks and indigenous peoples). What is the purpose for why these events are unknown where many people were affected, only to be forgotten or not taught by later generations?
Says The Committee:
Crimes will occur to and among humans for as long as humans teach each other to commit them. Which perpetrators are caught, exposed and prosecuted is a part of a greater human process. To reduce unsolved crime means reduce crime. Do not teach or make it profitable.
The frustration of bad history not taught more widely is a method for not instructing one another to repeat. More emphasis on bad events brings about more bad events.
War and crime are taught and learned, not innate.
We trust our brief response suffices.
