The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there #2

And another example showing just how different attitudes were to child sex-abuse a few decades ago.

From the wikipedia entry on Danny Cohn-Bendit

"In the 1980s the Greens experimented with various policies which would decriminalise sex with children. At its national conference in L├╝denscheid (March 1985) the Greens in North Rhine-Westphalia called for "nonviolent sexuality" between children and adults never to be subject to criminal prosecution. In 1987 the policy was "When young people have the desire for older peers outside the family, prevented either because their homosexuality is not accepted by their parents, or because they have paedophile inclinations, be it for other reasons, they must be given the opportunity to do so."
