- Now explain your reasoning if you want to be taken seriously.
Even more of my shitty...
Which one would you like me to explain?
For the sake of the post could you do them all?
Pepsi is sweeter than coke
Beer is rotten grain
The walking dead follows a formula where they hole up some place for a season before it gets destroyed and they go somewhere else
GTA San Andreas was about being a fucking stereotype and the story was awful
The dark knight rises was filled with plot holes
Ted bundy would not have killed as many as he did if they cut his hands off
Slavery was good for the economy because it let less wealthy farmers get labor done quickly thus improving society
Apologies if its long, I'm a bit of a wordy guy.
See for me coke has always been sweeter, but I only ever get Coke Vanilla anyways.
Agreed on beer, then again I just don't drink alcohol because I cant stand the smell.
As for the walking dead I haven't bothered watching it as I feel it wont live up to its hype and I'm too busy watching Breaking Bad the 300th time.
Also agree on San Andreas story wise but the game was all about indulging yourself in that kind of gangster world and being the stereotype you always hear about for kicks ( or at least thats how i saw it)
And I agree with dark Knight but for different reasons. I watched all the movie in a marathon and I found myself really hating the 3rd movie for slowing things down so they could shoe in a Catwoman love story. Also the thought of batman just leaving Gotham at the drop of the hat because he is being hunted made me laugh wholeheartedly as a comic reader.
And see I have actually agreed with the eye for an eye rule and have yet to see any evidence against it other then "Muh morality", but it just makes more sense in many cases such as with murders and generally violent offenses. Of course it cant be applied in every situation but there are some cases when it just makes more sense to me. Rarely if ever do people reform from their habits, and the chance of relapses just costs more lives. Thats why I like the Punisher much more than Batman but thats another story for another day.
As for slavery it did have economic benefits which cant be denied, but it does arguably exist today in a different form (at least in America it does) where prisoners are used for "community service" which entails cleaning and such things as fixing a city up in exchange for time off their sentences. Its not to the same extent as full blown slavery of course but you might see where I come from.
**partedways used "*roll picture*"**
I disagree with eyes for an eye and slavery.
Morally I can't agree with slavery simply because how poorly mistreated slaves were, often times straight up treated worse then cattle raised for the slaughter. I agree they had benefits but slaves are still people, I can't ignore that.
The eye for an eye system was brutally effective but only because it existed in a time when it needed to be, there didn't exist facilities for reform that exist today (not talking about prison), of-course I agree simply sending people to prison doesn't quite solve any problems, it's rather like sending a kid to the corner and expecting them to not do anything bad again once they leave it, what prisons should be, they should be reform centers, a place where in they get therapy and re-education to better be part of society, most prisons are essentially holding cells, just a place to keep them out of the "civilized" world so they don't have to deal with them. When the prisoner comes out of prison however they'll find it very hard to get back into the flow of society and turn back to the familiar practiced of what got them thrown in prison in the first place.
But few people want to do this, because even though it would the proper thing to do to prevent future criminals, it's not a "punishment" and people think that people should be punished for crimes til they learn their lesson, rather than teaching them how to better themselves.
Anyways the eye for and eye system wasn't really 1:1, a thief steals a weeks worth of money, they get their hand chopped off. A thief steals a single apple,
They get their hand chopped off
, well either way the thief is going to have a harder time finding work, everyone will know they're a thief now, and they have one less hand than a normal non criminal has. Who would hire a one handed thief? This mean the thief is broke, and needs to survive some how, hey you know what they can still do with one hand? steal, and they're pretty good at that. thus repeating the cycle until the thief is dead or without limbs and as good as dead.
It's not a great system.
Hypothetically, when it comes to the slave question what of indentured servants. people who pretty much rent themselves out as a sort of slave. Of course in order to legally taken on said servant the renter would have to pass ethics and living standards protocol. Basically if slavery were to be done in a far more humane way would it be deemed acceptable? As for eye for an eye, I feel the example you brought up was more an eye for a leg so to speak. The version Id advocate who be say "Someone stole 300$ worth of merch from a store" if this person were to be caught they would simply owe the store 300 or something of equivalence like say the store and the crook come to an agreement that he will work x amount of days for him to pay him back. This system has far more chance to benefit for both parties then the crook simply getting caught for something so minor, going to jail and consequentially becoming more hardened by the prison environment.
Your hypothetical situation is essentially a live in employee.. which are expensive to care for, and gets more expensive the more you have.
The reason why slavery worked was because you could treat your slaves like garbage and it was cheaper to get a new one than make sure your old one didn't break.
Slavery perhaps could work in a certain sense but to put it frankly, it's cheaper to just hire part time employees and have them work near full time hours.
Slavery and morality just don't mix very well.
You brought up eye for an eye, I spoke of the system that phrase was coined for. A softer iteration, perhaps that could work, but you forget, how often does a person steal when they have no need? Working off damages with time only further penalizes the victim who had nothing in the first place, it prevents them from looking for work while they work for no pay, if such a person could be reformed into a more productive member of society, it would be better.
Programs for that do exist, but in such limited quality it might as-well not exist.
How my system helps the offender is that it helps him gain real word experience in a work place and perhaps after his debt is paid he might be able to actually find his own job. In this system the punishment can also offer reform in this example. Also nothing stops them from doing other things for money while they work off a debt, the debt deal could easily be maybe 3 hours a day the offender comes in and cleans store and owner will write off maybe 20 bucks, again depends on the agreement between the offended party. Now that I think of it this system also eases the burden on the state as well since they will require less prisons and they could use the money else where.
