that was limbo, and if theres a limbo theres a heaven.
limbo is for souls waiting to go to heaven. so without a heaven, there's no limbo. also Dumbledore came from heaven to talk to harry, Dumbledore was there to tell him what is in store for him, had it been harrys time to die, Dumbledore would have guided harry onto heaven and the afterlife, however harry had a purpose to fulfill, so Dumbledore was to guide him back to the living world so that he could fulfil the prophecy.
spirits can come to the mortal world to visit loved ones on rare occasions and situations, but its rare.
spirits can also be locked to the mortal world as ghosts, unable to even go to limbo. they remain in the place where they died, the ghosts in hogwarts are an example of this

Limbo is for souls waiting to pass on, it can just as easily be for souls waiting to pass on to hell or reincarnation as it can be for heaven, also a few things to keep in mind regarding that scene
Dumbledore couldn't see that they were in Kings crossing suggesting that him and Harry weren't really in the same place.
When Harry asks Dumbledore where the train would take him Dumbledore simply replies 'on' which in no way sounds like some sort of angel being sent to guide someone to heaven, plus he didn't try to suggest to Harry that he should stay or move forward at all, he just said the options and left it up to Harry to decide.
They mention a couple times throughout the series that no one really knows what comes next after death.
Ghosts aren't the same thing as spirits really since they're just magical impressions of a wizard as they were when they died and that's why they can never develop or move forward with their lives, they lack the ability to grow both mentally and physically because they lack a bit of something that makes people alive. Same thing goes for wizard paintings, they're memories given form and animated by magic, not real people.
Spirits can't come to the mortal world to visit loved ones. The only times we ever get a glimpse of a true soul of the departed is through the veil in the department of mysteries and 'maybe' Dumbledore during that train station scene, although it's just as likely that all took place inside Harry's head and was, once again, not really Dumbledore but just a memory of him preserved through magic.
When Harry's and Voldemorts wands clash after his Resurrection and you see Harry's parents and Cedric that's just a psychic impression of the last few souls killed by Voldemorts wand, not their actual spirits.
When the Resurrection stone is used to bring people back to life it brings a 'shade' of the users departed loved ones, once again, shaped from the memories of the person and not their actual soul.

I always thought that the train station is a manifestation of Harry's subconscious understanding of a crossing of worlds. That is to say, the station is the crossing between the Muggle world and the Wizard world, at least for him. When he dies, he calls forth the station because of it's meaning to Harry, but now it's the crossing between the living and the dead. And it's at that crossing between those two that Dumbledore, even while dead, can make an appearance. Which is also the true parting of ways for Dumbledore and Harry, as Harry returns to the living but Dumbledore does not.

yeah I get the reference (even though it's a stretch) but there's no reason for him to go to the barber's to check when the earliest he can get an appointment is because the barber won't be returning home until either
A. the store closes, in which case he's leaving when that's scheduled to happen not when he's done with his current queue
B. when his shift ends, if multiple people work at the barbers shop then he would just tag out when his shift end potentially coming home much earlier than the other guy expects.
Because of this there's no relation to the first and second half of the joke and the whole damn thing just kinda seems dumb.

Basically that the mass genocide thing was (and still is) justified under the ideal of the well being of the individual being irrelevant when held in comparison to the well being of the society.
Think about it this way, if we went through and just killed all lower class neighborhoods and executed every repeat offender, we'd have far less crime and it would relieve a huge amount of money being spent by the government on things like welfare and prisons, money that could completely fix the problem with under funded schools, we could rennovate all the prison space we'd free up into universities, we'd be able to pay back the national debt, the dollar's value would increase dramatically, society as a whole would benefit greatly if we were to just stop paying attention to the needs and the rights of the bottom 10% then society as a whole could flourish!
But no, that's fucked up because the individual isn't irrelevant in the face of society as a whole and when you 'stop thinking' about the individuals that make of the society in favor of the society itself then you get tyranny, a society that oppresses its people for 'the greater good'
