Life on Earth

Capital punishment Agree: 1 divider Disagree: 0


Both Agreements and DisagreementsWe hope that capital punishment will be abolished among humans on earth. We do not see any point in the destruction of a life even though it has done very negative and destructive things to others. We still do not see the reason for you in turn to have the right to cut short the life experiences that that individual is to be experiencing.

AgreeWithin your system, to kill is obviously a moral crime, but to kill another in punishment only compounds the original error. Someone very well known who established a church - if you will, a civilization - once said, 'Turn the other cheek if you are attacked.' The original meaning of that remark, however, should be understood. You should turn the other cheek because you realize that basically the attacker only attacks himself.

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life.

—John Muir
