Re: Let’s Talk
read it again, i didn’t call the players thugish or less than human, i called some of the ’supporters’ (the quotes are there because, how can they be supporters if they cause fights that make the team look bad).
i think that people who enjoy causing extreme pain to another person/creature WITHOUT a good enough reason are less than human, as being human is to be a responsible guardian of this planet and using our intellect to do greater things. not beat up a chealsea fan then set fire to him while he’s unconcious.
would you agree with me? because if you don’t there is something seriously wrong going on in your head.
Oops. I definitely misread that line. Got it now.
*But I'd have to say I disagree. I condone the setting on fire of people I don't get along with.
^^ *The line above was 100% sarcasm.
I didn't hear about the chelsea fan incident but I think that's terrible if those were the circumstances of the matter.
Is there ever a good enough reason to cause extreme pain to another individual or creature (with the exception of self defense because your life is in jeopardy)? I say live and let live.
Then, of course, another side exists that could argue it is in fact most human to cause pain as it's our instinct. In some societies, what we view as crime isn't a crime at all. Think of honour killings for example. Or even the death penalty, assisted suicides… or war. Those all involve taking the life of (an)other individual(s), but are morally acceptable depending on the society.
And sorry that I somewhat digressed, but I find discussions interesting
