    Re: Would You Utilize Torture to Save a Life?

    Here's the thing, I believe that torture is morally wrong. I honestly believe this. And I would willingly, even ENTHUSIASTICALLY, throw away my morality in order to save the life of my loved one.

    I would torture the ever-living **** out of the guy in order to save them. I would do this knowing what I was doing is immoral.

    Because, I logically consider torture to be morally wrong. If my loved one's life were on the line, logic goes right out the ****ing window.

    Stop trying to derail the thread. Once I feel a sufficient number of answers and relevant dialogue have occurred I will deign to discuss the implications of this poll. Until then, stop posing irrelevant questions and give me a straight answer. YES or NO will suffice. Refuse to torture and your family is doomed. What's it going to be?

    You are in no position to infer what my intentions are, nor are you able to extrapolate how such a poll may be relevant to the issue at hand. I am not making any comparisons or inferences. I am posing a simple question that some people (you) are seemingly incapable of answering. Once enough answers have been given I will deign to discuss the implications of my poll. If you do not wish to answer then kindly stop derailing my thread.

    One more thing (apologies), could you please give an explaination as to why you would not torture this individual given the circumstances. The context is isolated, so please remain within it.

    Absolutely my good man.

    I could not force myself to torture anyone irregardless of circumstance.
    I could defend myself without question but the image of someone already being restrained and you just torturing them just does not sit well with me.

    I'm not derailing anything, I'm merely asking what your intentions are with it. I'm not going to answer your silly poll if the purpose is to bait, which by all outward appearances is the purpose. The fact that you aren't forthcoming with what your intentions are makes me suspect even more that the purpose of this poll is to bait.

    Since when is asking legitimate questions derailing a thread? If you don't like my questions feel free to ignore them.
