    report damning the interrogations used by the CIA and the long suspected misleading of the public regarding their gruesome practices as a method in gaining intelligence. Not only were harsh methods being used in the wake of the attacks on 9/11, many of these proved to be...

    Introverts/extroverts Understandings

    First off, there are those who are reading this who might not know which camp they fall into, the extrovert or the introvert. Chances are, the majority of those reading this will know, but for those who don’t, let’s define those two terms here very broadly. Extroverts tend to...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Its Wrong

    I strongly believe that torture is wrong. There is nothing right about it. Ive seen hostel and hostel part II. There is no one that deserves it. Even if someone did the worst thing to me. If it was worth killing them. I would shoot them in the head. If someone killed anyone in my...
