More Severe Punishments Won’t Make Things Better

More Severe Punishment Will Only Make Things WorseNews Story: Missouri Governor Calls For Capital Punishment For Child Rapists

“Missouri Governor Matt Blunt demanded child rapists face capital punishment, at a news conference outside the St. Louis County Courthouse Monday. Hours later, lawmakers moved to make Missouri the 7th state to expand the death penalty for crimes beyond first degree murder.”

My Comment: The world is becoming more and more egoistic, and things aren’t getting any better. We keep looking for an answer in our egoism, our current situation, and this is pointless. Violence as a method of controlling violence is doomed to fail! I’m reading news stories everyday on how punishments are becoming more severe all the time. Violence is simply the stupidest means for correcting society, and only allows more and more dirt to fill it. The only way to save ourselves from any kind of violence is to rise above egoism, period.


  1. When I was absent from the group for this last couple of days I had a conversation with my father how to resolve the problem of crime for ever. He exclaimed in question: “Should there be return to the capitol punishment and other form of execution of the law used in the Middle Ages like cutting off of wrist in case of stealing or cutting off of tongue in case of lying etc. based on Exodus 21:23-25?”
    Exodus says:
    “But if there is any further injury, then you shall appoint as a penalty life for life, (24) eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, (25) burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise.

    He expressed with proposal: The answer to the question is yes.
    The attraction and the same time seriousness of the way the punishment is being applied as the form of the preventive measures for further offenders, doubled even trebled in effect being performed as self execution in addition a life broadcast all over the world from the event.
    This is the only way to stop peoples from committing such atrocities to other human beings.

  2. For all as a warning so that no more have done so.
