Corporal Punishment and Stockholm Syndrome

http://www.cnn.com/2008/US/08/20/corporal.punishment/

The fact that corporal punishment, state sponsored violence against children, is practiced primarily in regressive states is not at all surprising. Children in these states are more likely to face beatings at home as well as school.

The children growing up in these states experience Stockholm Syndrome from being abused by their parents and schools, and this cements their attachment to the abusive worldview they grew up in, helping explain why some of these states who benefit so much from progress and government assistance consistently vote against their interests.
