How to thrive in prison: High-submissivness high-power (Michael Franzese)

one can I agree with the principle: there are some "sins" one can commit that are fair to be paid for with life.

I don't know what he did but I do not agree. It's a matter of personal belief, though. I don't believe in the death penalty. It's an old way to me. It's a matter of personal values. I value Life above all. However, I'm not too keen on having this debate. I had it many times, I made my opinion. Case closed. I respect other people's divergent opinion at the same time. I do not think one is right and one is wrong. It's a matter of what you value most.

Yeah, in some cases "victim blaming" may not be 100% a cheap rationalization, sometimes the "victim" really is to blame (or at least partially to blame), so thinking from a philosopher frame it is a very complex and interesting thing to ponder about, and surely we have to always be careful when learning from "monsters" or fighting them...

I also value life highly, yet i also value freedom, if you freely choose to play by rules that may make you murdered/killed if you break them, and then you go and break them, I am not saying it is right for the enforcer of the rules to assassinate you, I am saying I may not personally lose my sleep over it.
