I am reminded of the Stanford prison experiment...

And okay, it's Buzzfeed. But this doesn't strike me as a political story. ... st-josephs

The remains of more than 150 people were discovered at an Irish laundry where unmarried pregnant teens were sent to work. As many as 400 babies and children were found in unmarked graves at Smyllum Park, a Scottish orphanage, with no records to say who they were. The unmarked graves of 25 children were found at the site of an old boarding school in the Blackfeet Nation, Montana. What has been described as a significant amount of remains — it’s unclear just how many bodies — of babies and even children as old as 3 were found in the sewer system at the site of a mother and baby home in Tuam, Galway, in Ireland. The remains of dozens of boys were unearthed at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida. Some of these incidents prompted official inquiries; just last week, Scottish police arrested a dozen people, mostly nuns, for abuse at the Smyllum Park orphanage. But in the United States, at least, nothing has prompted an investigation into the orphanage system as a whole. What happened to the millions of children who survived it — and to the unknowable numbers who did not — remains a secret and a shame.

It's also very long. But that's a sample.

Nothing but animals, if half of what is said is true.

“The gap in EU finances arising from the United Kingdom’s withdrawal and from the financing needs of new priorities need to be clearly acknowledged.” - Mario Monti

Orphanages in the Western world up through the late 19th century were little more than "places for children to die, unless they were VERY resilient and/or lucky, and/or managed to get acquired/adopted as a slave into a willing family . . ." Not a surprise.

Pretty much still the same in China these days I think . . . Arguably not much different in many Islamic countries where fertility remains high, and affluence remains low,but suicide bombing remains "prestigious."
