I dont agree with you, i myself have experienced neither capital punishment nor life-imprisonment, but if one may judge a priori, then in my opinion capital punishment is more moral and more humane than imprisonment. Execution kills instantly , life-imprisonment kills by degrees. who is more humane executioner, one who kills you in a few seconds or one who draws the life out of you incessantly, for years?
They're both equally immoral, because their purpose is the same, to take away life. The state is not god. it had no right to take away that which it cannot give back, if it should so desire
Capital punishment and life-imprisonment are equally immoral; but if i were offered the choice between them, i would certainly chose the second. It's better to live somehow than not to live at all.
It's a lie. I bet you two millions you wouldn't stick in a cell even for five years.
If you mean it seriously, then i bet i'll stay not five but fifteen.
