It’s nearing the end of fall term, and every student knows what that means–finals. For me it means a 1,500 word paper. My teacher told us we could write on whatever topic we wished, but it must be out of our textbook. I looked over all the essays and only two stuck out: “Is There a Torturous Road to Justice” by Alan M. Dershowitz, and “The Case for Torture” by Michael Levin. Thus, for my last paper I’m going to write about the modern use of torture. The ethics and positions behind it, whether it even works, and if the government should endorse it. Stay tuned.
