Do you find torture necessary or unnecessary? Immoral/justified.
Methods and degrees of torture, most/least painful/barbaric.
'Brutal' torture (eye gouging, limb-cutting...) and more 'modern' torture (water-boarding, sleep deprivation...).
cant answer question. itll obviously be more justified for example if they are a bad person as opposed to a good person in perspective, and for why they are using torture. Such as interrigation. But for punishment torture is a definite no-no. Not unless someone did a thousand attrocities that are beyond human imagination til theyve heard about them or something that absurd, but all punishment is a form of torture really.
Ain't worthy of being called torture if it doesn't do permanent damage.
I can't say I'm a fan of torture. Seems like someone would have to do something extremely offensive to deserve it. As a means of interrogation it seems to have a record about like any good batter in MLB. Sure, it looks like it does well when you look at all the successes, but when you compare that to the number of negative results you start to wonder why it's considered good.
As a means of interrogation; yes, there are probably far more unsuccessful results than successful, but are those few successful ones worth using it as a means for stopping future plots like terrorism.
Impractical how so? Because people will confess just to get out of it, despite the truth?
We seem to have this mindset that anything that makes someone even a tiny bit uncomfortable 'torture', so the description is significantly misleading.
Is it useful? In the right hands, handled by professionals, it can gain significant information. In the wrong hands? It's useless.
