A simplified reality based hypothetical situation with questions at the end.
Lets imagine a couple who after many tries and failures finally at great cost succeed in having a much wanted baby. Despite having been born in the dead of winter since conception took place during the Spring time, Bahar in Persian, he is lovingly nicknamed Son Of Bahar, SOB for short.
Lets further imagine after a short period of neighborhood-wide jubilation the proud parents and neighbors notice SOB displaying very odd, destructive behavior. At first everyone justifies it as a natural response to his less than ideal environment, aunts, uncles and cousins make excuses for every obviously very bad behavior of his. But with time as SOB gains strength so does the frequency of his violent outbursts which progressively and very quickly gets to the point that everyone is scared stiff of the formerly much beloved, long awaited for SOB.
Eventually the young man routinely grabs any neighbor be it man, woman or child who disobeys his increasingly irrational orders, either ties them to a tree and beats the bejesus out of them in public, gouge their eye out, chop a limb, rape a few and string up few more from the Utility pole or construction crane. Lets finally imagine after SOB begins to do the same things to few of his quarrelsome cousins who thinking they could change him in one way or another had been his little helpers, fearing for their own lives most of the rest either flee or stop working for him.
Now SOB is left with frightened parents and neighbors who are in perpetual mourning for some loved ones who SOB has tortured, raped or murdered, needless to say they now hate every fiber of SOB’s being.
The question is should the parents and neighbors:
Knowing a beating and worst is SOB’s usual response, for the umpteenth time try to talk some sense to him?
Let him be and hope that he will eventually either gets tired of raping/murdering and will grow out of it, or someone hopefully benevolent from somewhere emerges to replace him and till then make do as best as they can?
Knowing the other neighborhoods which have begun to fear for their own safety and are considering preemptively attacking the entire neighborhood, ask them for help to get rid of SOB themselves and in the process save their beloved old neighbors and neighborhood?
What are the parents and neighbors of a formerly much-vaunted child who has grown up to be an incorrigible, unrepentant serial rapist/murder to do? Does it take the Wisdom of Solomon to decide?
