My position is that you are trying to destroy an important part of human morality, which would make people worse, blind to justice, etc., though you mistakenly believe that that would make people better. And I also say that you're going up against human nature on this one, so even Woke power will not suffice.
They used to have public hangings, and crowds would come. Now they don't have public hangings. I suppose you would say that's not a good thing, that it's made people worse, because people have been deprived of a natural behaviour.
Of course I do not say that. It's not even close. You just make something up about me.
But regardless, let us take a look at the public hangings in question. Were they just? Sometimes, they were. Sometimes, they were not. Very often, people who did not deserve to be punished - or deserved a much lesser punishment - were being hanged in unjust revenge. So, it is better overall that they do not have them anymore.
But there is more: during public hangings, many people wanted to hang others while not having sufficient reasons to believe the hanging was deserved. That's pretty bad. So, good thing it's not there anymore.
