In case you have not heard the European Union has banned the making of the lethal injection drug pentobarbital. Pentobarbital was considered inhumane when it was given to a Missouri convict. It caused him to gasp during his lethal injection for rape and murder. So what do we do with all the people who are just sitting in the death penalty zone?
Missouri and Wyoming are both considering using firing squads if the ban on this drug continues. The firing squad will consist of five officers chosen by the state department of corrections officer. Wyoming said that they will begin using the fire squad because it is the cheapest form of execution for the state. It would also quickly free up the costs of tax payers that death row inmates cost.
How do you feel about this? Do you feel it is more humane to die by a firing squad? Do you think the crime rates would slow down if people knew they could be executed this way? Do you believe this is a good idea? Should execution be outlawed?
Call me evil however Atlantians had it right. They had a location called Hellion where they would send the most ignorant and the worst of society to mine and create goods for the rest of the citizens. This freed up the work of the people that were educated and could follow basic laws. When you hear about hell it came from the place called Hellion. It is a location away from mainstream society in Atlantis. The theory was to separate the ignorant and violent citizens away from the peaceful and intelliegent citizens. The government at the time was afraid that one bad apple would ruin the rest. This is very true.
We are also supposed to treat others the way we would want to be treated including our enemies. So how is it okay to execute people? I am not okay with generalized slavery. However putting someone out of their misery is an easy solution for the convict. The U.N. should take an already polluted continent and move all the people who are not criminals and are intelligent off of it. Secure the island then move all of the ignorant violent onto it where they can make the goods for everyone else. This would allow the working class to actually not have to work. Every day goods would be next to free because you would not have to pay for labor costs. Only transportation. This would free time for families and citizens would have time to work out and educate themselves. Think of how much time it costs you in other things to sit behind a desk from 9-5 or in a factory?
Of course this island would have to contain a school for relearning on how to be a productive peaceful member to society. What if a 18 year old commits a crime? What if that child came from a bad home and that is all he or she knew? It is not fair to just execute someone who only has a violent past. It is not that persons fault if they do not understand compassion. This is why I feel execution is unfair. I only heard of the crime that person committed and who the victims were. I do not hear about the crimes that were committed against that criminal in the past or how their childhood was. Sometimes a person cannot take a bad life anymore so they figure they will just do bad things because they have not received any love in their life. If that person still does not understand how to live in a generalized population then they can remain a slave until they die. Do I believe slaves have to be treated brutally? No. I am not encouraging the ancient forms of slavery. I am encouraging a peaceful separation without execution and a second chance at redemption.
It is a new way to view things based off of some ancient philosophical concepts that are no longer used. Slavery itself is not bad it is the way that slaves are treated that can be. In this type of society slavery would be a choice. You have the choice to be a good educated person or work for those who wish to be able to learn.
This is just my opinion and I highly doubt it will change the world. World leaders have more important things to do then read my blog.
