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.

When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing, then the supreme state will come to you uninvited and unexpected.
