    It's hideous. No means of it is acceptable.

    It is inhumane, and unforgivable. I have no respect for any... animal... that uses it against someone else. They lose their title of human being in my eyes when they resort to it.

    Its Wrong

    Damage

    The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a beautiful document which contains in it the ridiculously idealistic, laughably naive hope that, one day, each human being on the planet will live with dignity.  Perhaps I am idealistic and perhaps I am naive, but as an...

    Against Torture

    No body should assume the rights over anyone else in this arena! Many countries are at the hands of incompetent leaders who exercise their power at the expense of those who come under their juristiction! Whilst there is a lot of beauty in our world,we should not lose sight of...

    Facing extreme emotional and physical torture, continually, how many of us would withstand it and not say anything just to make it stop?  Very few I know, as whilst we may say we would, we are in essence, very rarely an endurant race as humans. Suspicion- it is not a very...

    Water Boarding

     is not "squirting water on someone's face." It is " immobilizing the victim on his or her back with the head inclined downwards, and then pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages, causing the captive to believe he or she is dying...

    I'm completely against torture.

    Firstly, because it's unethical, and also the fact that coercive interrogation methods are not a reliable or effective way of collecting information from others. If you push someone enough, the person will spew whatever it is that needs to be said, whether it's true or not...

    Not A Debate

    For me this is like the abortion, gay marriage, death penalty, and non-consentual domestic violence discussion. I have a sense of this one in particular being a good example of what I'm talking about: I cannot believe this is still a debate, and dialectically I feel stupid for...

    Historically

    Back in the 18th century, Europeans realized something. Not only is torture inhumane, it's ineffective. And if it was ineffective for them, why should it be any more effective or any more human for us? There is a sense of humanity that has evolved with our thinking and...
