Sure. Draconian describes punishment for crimes. Harsh punishment for small crimes. It says nothing about individual freedoms other than the results of conviction of a crime.



So find me a society with plentiful individual freedom that utilizes punishments like those in the OP.

You will be shocked (or maybe not) to find that many posters who fear sharia law and are in favor of laws banning this nonexistent threat actually are in favor of its implementation. Weird.

No. What you're asking me to do is not related to my statement.

Yes it is. That you can't do it shows that the two things, though you are trying to draw distinctions, are very much linked.

BOOOONNNNKKKKK! Wrong. The evidence is overwhelming, C.

The man KNEW the rules; HE CHOSE to inflict those rules upon HIMSELF.

These rules should only be employed where there is NO DOUBT as to guilt. Ask that dude if he'll be doin any more stealing. You know the answer.

How has that worked out for the death penalty in this country over the years?

I guess he won't with missing fingers, but no government should have the power to dismember its citizens.

What if I stole something so trivial as a 75 cent newspaper? Do I deserve to have my hands cut off for that? If somebody answers yes, then that person is a fricking loon.


if you knew the consequence was that you would lose a hand i bet you wouldnt steal that 75 cent paper.. but if the punishment was a slap on the wrist i bet you would.... thanks for proving my point.

So is it your devout belief in god and strict adherence to the bible that prompts your support of cutting parts of people off, or a strict conservatism that constantly bitches for a smaller state that emboldens you to support such state power?

I want you to read what you wrote and think about it clearly.

You are actually proposing that the govt cut off your hand as punishment for something so trivial as stealing an item that has little value like a 75 cent paper. Why do you want to give the govt that power? That is power a tyrant would love.

Lunacy. Seek help.

first off... let not bring religion into this.. has nothing to do with this... secondly, states already have powers to enforce punishment( jail time. community service, etc.) so you wouldnt be giving them any more powers..

and you act like the people i am talking about are pure, law abiding,hard working individuals who will be subjected to this form of punishment.

ill give you an example from my own personal experience. i had a good friend get mugged outside of a gas station and was shot in the chest( he survived barely)..the criminal was apprehended about and hour later. it was caught on video surveillance and my friend was also able to ID the guy... he received a 12 yr sentence and is eligible for parole after 8...

my alternative would be to amputate both arms at the elbows.. he would never shoot anyone again and it wouldnt cost tax payers anything..

what is so wrong about that? does this CRIMINAL who acted inhumanely deserve to be treated humanely... the correct answer is NO. you give up that right when you commit such acts

I'm sorry, but I refuse to believe that a man with no arms below the elbows would not be a burden to tax payers. He obviously can't work, so he'll end up getting government assistance of some kind.

As some of the comments in this thread prove, a lot of people who object to authoritarian government aren't against government oppression per se. They're just fine with it as long as their side is the one doing the oppression.
