Why Torture?

We torture, you and I. I wish you'd stop doing it. Maybe I should stop, too.

It isn't like a suffering that one has chosen, to be tortured. It isn't like giving a kidney for a friend. It's something that is done to you.

The purpose of torture is ostensibly to recruit you to the will of the torturer. This is bullying taken to the extreme. We kill people during torture, you and I.

As soon as the victim departs the torture chamber, any coercion of will departs, and the torturer becomes the new enemy. We have just now processed a nation of people into becoming our enemy by bullying and torture. We fear they may follow us home if we leave the scene. So there we stand, with blood on our hands.

You and I.
