← Why I’d Rather Not Speak About Torture

Torture is just an elaborate reworking of the second Trolley Car problem, which is morally equivalent to the first Trolley Car problem, which most people agree with. Western nations are quite happy to have their ordnance reigning down on other countries with the foreseeable and inevitable deaths, injuries and suffering of innocents that results. People might declare that 'torture are collateral damage are wrong' but 80-90% of westerners are happy to keep voting for the two-party consensus that perpetuates these crimes.
