19. I'm not sure that the progressive thing would be to penalize the 100s of thousands...

...of employees involved in the robosigning debacle just for following orders.

Though we shouldn't give the banks blanket immunity, we should make exceptions for the bosses who ordered the peons to do it, and places where it was systematic and where you can show evidence that the individuals involved knew it was wrong.

So, while your derisive sarcasm seems at least somewhat amusing, in reality it reflects a truly non-progressive value system, where hundreds of thousands of people are fined, penalized, or even criminalized for following orders, in many cases, probably ignorantly.
