It is despicable that so many states still allow corporal punishment in schools.

I agree that there is a domain of expertise to consider, and that there are certain peaks that can be acknowledged as having some sort of consensus. However, I also agree that there are some issues that are still very subjective, and are morally definable only to the individuals they originate from.
