Yes but see the problem is what if there innocent?
Theres thousands of people in jail right now that didn't do anything
There being cleared over the yrs as cases r reopened and tecnology's improving
I mean it sucks...royally that they were put in jail in the first place
but atleast if you are innocent u dont have to worry about dying

Put yourself in there shoes
Pretend that your an innocent man straped to a bed as they clean your arm to prevent iinfection and then inject you with posion.
Nobody will listen to you
Everybody hates you for a crime you didn't commit
Your being murdered by the goverment because they made a mistake

Besides if you are guilty
Having to live your entire life
Alive in a lil 10x10 cell
Thats worse then death


We live in a diffrent culture now you can't compare ancient japan to modern day
We live in completly diffrent cultures
Completly diffrent times

I don't think were fit to judge them anymore then they'd be fit to judge us
I agree with you completly about the death penalty. Though i take it s step farther and add religion to it.

the japanese example was just an example...which i think proves moral relativity. We can say they were wrong for doing it...though you are right, diff time.

So lets look at a closer example. how about the represion of women in some middle eastern countries. Is that right? is it wrong? Do we as a non member of that culture even have the right to say it is right or wrong? We know it's wrong in our culture...but does that make it wrong in theirs?
