    Unfair

    And also it is largely untrue. The Japanese are a sophisticated culture. Their legal system is finely tuned to their needs.

    They define "human rights " differently than do Amercians. I do not...

    True, quite possibly, but so were the civilian deaths in China during the Second World War.

    You lost your wager.

    If you were predicting my words, you guessed wrong, pook.

    What I would say is if you don't want to lose, don't gamble. If you are afraid of being unjustly accused and convicted (not an...
  4. Maybe not

    Because the personal computer had not yet been invented, records keeping was not up to today's standards, but according to the pundits of the time, it is possible that this title belongs to the...

    Since when does anyone's position in the "new world order" make them liable to meet certain requrements of "legal minimums?" And exactly where does the USA--standing so deeply in the dry and locked...

    I question that conclusion.

    The magnitude of pollution that occurred in the ex-Soviet Union might well eclipse anything done by the United States. The world is still discovering the air, water...

    I do not like the Japanese legal system. I was compelled to deal with it while I was on Okinawa, and it scared the feces out of me with its seeming capriciousness and its utter lack of protections...

    The reigns of power

    Of course the CCP does not want to share power with its own populace. What is new about that? What despotism ever does? But the very people who clutch so tightly to the reigns of power also...

    For my own sake

    I support the appeal process for any number of reasons, but first of them is for my own sake. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that one of us could find ourselves accused someday. I want...

    While I understand and support your thesis

    Death penalty convictions--after the appeals, clemency requests, reviews, etc are completed--tend to be so expensive that society seldom saves anything over housing the felons for life. For example,...

    Like I said, I feel guilty when ever anyone has his life taken and I am part of the process. But I depend on the legal system to work in order to weed out fringe cases like that.

    I do not think that is weird at all, Cee-Cee.

    I feel kinda guilty about every person I have sent to meet his maker, whatever the method. I have never served on a capital jury, but I have...

    I find that puzzling. Finding favor with torture but abhorring putting a felon to death...I do not offer criticism, just puzzlement. You do consider yourself to be morally sound and civilized? ...

    Almost everyone

    I hoped for a debate over this topic but this is as likely as we are going to get.

    My views on capital punishment are rather complicated.

    I do not believe that capital punishment redeems any...

    Betcher booty, Brooker!

    That's a guy who deserved to fry! I read the book, by Smith & Guillen. What got me was how close they came to nailing that perp so many times. The signs were there, but no one could read them.

    My question is not aimed exclusively at the current culture of Japan as much as it is toward any culture.

    Does the use of capital punishment in itself pose a significant statement about that...
  18. Sticky: Poll: Edo Period

    It is the most familiar period to me--other than the Showa periods and the US Occupation--because this encompasses the great battle of Seikigahara and the rise of Tokugawa Ieyasu to Shogun.
