There is one infallible truth that should be taught to all humans, starting at a very young age, even as young as 2 years old.
Regardless of religious beliefs, or atheist views, know the facts -- the reality of nature. The philosophy of Hegel states, "The fully realized results -- the truth of the acorn is the oak tree!" Yes, we reap what we sow.
Scientific discoveries might get modified similarities in some form, but we will never plant a weed seed and get a rose.
Could we instill this truth into young minds, and demonstrate to them the inerrant truth in life? No one escapes this reality indefinitely.
Perhaps no one planted the right seeds at a young age in those who engaged in bad behaviors -- even crimes. If the right seeds were planted, perhaps they could have become a rose.
