I only wish I had more such discipline when I was younger, I'd probably be much better at self discipline and not still struggling with it at almost 30!
But to suggest that a rule regarding males having long hair in school beings such "order and discipline" is completely absurd. Schools had much stricter policies in the past, and yet they have given rise to the society you yourself deplore.

But to suggest it would be because they are so "sensitive and offended" is a little unreasonable, they, like myself, Djones and Pax, may just see the absurdity of allowing pure aesthetics to come into the way a school is run and not agree with it or comply.

Are you suggesting that in some recent time this has come about? That mankind has not always allowed itself to be manipulated and controlled by a few? I'd love to hear more on your theories of this better" world that used to exist.

Quite simplistic there. Do you not already realise that most people here are those that put others before themselves?
But what you are doing is taking the choice to have freedom to choose hair length and connecting it to defeating corruption. That's a LONG shot.
Your above last statement also is used to justify, but not limited to, the following:
And I agree with Jefferson in that, "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it."
Sadly the argument you pose it the same as that of elitists, Freemasons and those pushing for World government.
