Toward the original context, anyone who is "canned" suffers and are tortured. PERIOD.


Just ask any sardine.

Sorry, LeeLeeOne. I know it is a serious subject and I understand your argument against all and any physical punishments. I would love to see a day when man’s inhumanity to man could be consigned to history. I just don’t see how this could happen.

If you have the answer, please tell me.

Maybe at some future stage in human evolution our descendents will look back at this barbaric period and wonder how we could have been so cruel to one another.

I don’t in fact hold out much hope for that happening. Too much destructive technology in the hands of too many poorly evolved intellects.
