- Haha! I thought so... yeh, me too.Oct 22, 2014
I failed to formulate my thought completely which led to confusion. In order for someone to obtain the death penalty they would have had to deliberately, purposefully, and even maliciously killed someone which is unlike a soldier. Killing another maliciously (with evil intent) forfeits their right to live because they took that life into their own hands, putting themselves as the highest judge. This differs from the death penalty because it is in fact not arbitrary. A delicate system of checks and balances attempts to remove any personal goal behind the punishment.I also agree that no one has to the authority to decide whether or not that person has the right to live which is why this is a difficult subject. I think because of that we must use the infallible source of justice, God’s Word or namely The Bible, to find what true justice is.
I also agree that the best way to teach that this is wrong is in raising our children, but in this case, it is too late for that. Killing someone for killing someone is not the best way to teach that it is wrong. That would be showing them that the life they are taking is indeed precious, showing them that they ought to care for that life, not take it. That love for the other is stronger that fear of being killed. Love is always a stronger agent than fear.Oct 22, 2014
- Haha reading your comments made me wonder if you were classically educated as well. You made a very well formulated rhetorical argument.Oct 23, 2014
- It's called justice. we kill people who kill for no reason, because if we don't, they'll just keep killing people for no reason. So it's a lot better that we end the bad guy's life instead of letting him kill a bunch more good guys.Oct 23, 2014
- T K Bali+1Well! I know there are some cases where you feel that the best example can be set by capital punishment only, where I also think this is right.
As far the capital punishment is concerned I think it should be rarest of rare where any other punishment seems, the denial of justice.
And as far it's complete abolition is concerned, I think it might not help countries which go through regular and very grave law and order problems, however it's implementation should be restricted to the cases which really demand it for real justice.Oct 23, 2014
