The Jullansia S.P.C.C. has launched a fresh campaign to stop parents from smacking their children. They demand that the government introduce laws to ban this form of 'corporal punishment'.

The Debate
Child Psychiatrist, Dr. Dave Li, speaks at a press conference on the matter: "Parents and teachers must realise that smacking children increases aggressiveness, lowers their self-esteem, and can cause long-term emotional trauma! How can anybody think that it is anything but child abuse? Parents who resort to smacking their children are obviously unfit to be parents at all! We must ban this horrible practice at once!"

"What are these lunatics on about?!" yells Roger Jefferson, a concerned parent. "Smacking children has been an effective form of punishment since the dawn of mankind! Outlaw it and I guarantee you the next generation will be a disorderly disaster! Children need, nay CRAVE discipline! Sometimes the only language they understand is the cane, and the government has to respect that!"

We've got a lovely forum for issues, called (oddly enough) Got Issues? Why doncha read some of the topics there and see if your question is answered?

As far as effects go, sometimes you just have to try it out. Learning about consequences of political decisions 's what this game is about.
