Regarding the death penalty however, if it's the best answer to serious crime, what does Peter Hitchens think is the second best? I'm asking because I would proberly prefer that second best over capital punishment. I don't believe treating unethical people unethically has any moral high ground and can sometimes end up actually justifying the motivations of unethical people. So the only loose end there is, is the death penalty unethical?
What's your say on capital punishment? Ethical or unethical?
