The Headlines are Enough to Make You Puke
Well, here I am, sitting in my garden on a lovely summer morning in Denmark and why should I give a flying fart about torture?
Well, first off, just reading the titles of the last ten posts on this blog was enough to turn my stomach to where I felt the need to visit the toilet in a reverse position to the normal when one needs to exclude wastes from the body -- that is I was about to puke.
Just the titles of the posts was enough to let me know that there are people out there who understand the degrading sickeness of state-sponsered torture.
Bascially torture is terror. Its only real use is to terrorize the body public. Torture, except for the rogue psychopath, exists, takes place, happens, only through the political will of whatever regime which decides to implement it.
Torture cannot keep you safe, information gained through torture is useless -- except to gain names of other people to put through the meat grinder.
The only "good" thing about torture is that, perhaps, it gives those who implement and order its use a feeling of potency, that is to say they get their rocks off -- something a little blue pill could do more efficiently.
