Like I said before. If it's justified, yes. If you let someone live like a fiend without punishment for their actions, they won't learn, and neither will you. Keep the peace, and they will still want to stab you in the back. It's time to learn how humans really work in terms of justice, we are not some white Knight that let's a man walk away from raping someone, they need to know what justice feels like so we put the fear into their eyes.

We are not pushovers, we are sadistic in nature when it comes to being justified for our actions. From ones actions, you cannot contain another's justification by relating to their feelings, we are different from one another, and if one is more sadistic in their justification, you cannot hold them back for the sake of what is right and wrong.


I think torture is repugnant, cruel, and devolves the person doing it. Torture dehumanizes the torturer as well. Not to mention what Kirito did "should be illegal" for the sake of keeping order, though I understand if laws lag because I believe SAO was the first VRMMO.


Now here's more of my personal, biased, and somewhat wrong views, but I believe mercy to be a virtue. Though let's be fair, I assume you're against torture as punishment being done by the Government, and if not, I feel sorry for you.

It was just a game. The other upped the pain gain settings first, and stabbed Kirito like a butterfly pinned to a board. Kirito just maxed out the settings and stabbed him back.

Dehumanizing? Maybe if they do it for no reason. I'm not going to be OK with someone just torturing another for the soul purpose of passing the time and satisfying a sick obsession.

Mercy is what every human is capable of, but it can only go so far. There are people who need torture, and in some cases, death. For most cases torture is worse than death, and torture can make some of the most vile and degenerate people turn into crying, weak, and frail humans, bringing them back down to reality by using such a sick and twisted method to cure the sick and twisted. So is torture justified?

Torture is used as a method of persuasion, and it can also be used as a method of pain and infliction based on what someone has done. I do not believe in torture when people do it for fun, but I do believe it is a way to serve justice when justice is needed.
