    Re: Should Amanda Knox Be Extradited to Prison in Italy?

    I don't know why would agree to extradite prisoners to another country that's justice system is sub par. We should only ever agree to extradite people to another country if their judicial system is equal to and in agreement with our own IMO. I don't think she got a fair trial, and I think the murder investigation itself was fraught with human error and contamination of evidence (what LITTLE circumstantial evidence they actually had), they had next to NO physical evidence as far as I've seen so far. The way they went about interrogating her I also have an issue with. Did she have an opportunity to have a lawyer present? There are a lot of issues with this case and with extraditing prisoners in general.

    With all due respect, that's cynical Conservative nonsense. Society has never been more advanced.

    You'll continue to believe that while you cleave to ahistorical and outmoded ideals.

    I think that "me, me, me" attitude started in the Eighties under Reagan and Thatcher, Gordon Gecko and "greed is good". We then had endless movements of anti-poor agitation; a systematic denial of the existence of community and society; the cynical, fallacious scam that was 'trickle-down' economics and the ever-widening, ever-more-extreme inequality of opportunity and income. Moral and ethical standards are certainly in a poor state, but it has nothing to do with the Sixties, hippies or free love.

    That sounds like advocacy for the USA to take out the entire Italian justice system since its insanely dumb and "F'd" up!

    the entire concept of welfare is ME ME ME. The only thing more selfish than imposing costs on other people merely because they exist within the same geopolitical boundary as you do, is using forced charity to buy yourself the votes of the recipients of such handouts.

    I'm an isolationist. It's dumb, but it's theirs.

    I also turn a blind eye on other religious and tribal practices that America thinks is "cruel" or "inhumane". Female circumcision, for instance.

    I support America minding its own business.

    Nonsense. If people putting in a full week's work hours (40+) are still having to claim welfare, it's because they are being underpaid and the selfishness is coming from the employer.

    You mean like giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% or earners? Those don't just buy votes, they buy Super-PACs.
