Give me Heroin Ghost who shoots up to feel alive or LSD Tree Frog who wants to know what people keep licking him.

The death penalty is always wrong.
Murder is not a punishment and once you've stripped her of her ill-got gains there is no longer any reason to kill her.

@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

While I agree in principle I tend to think there are still unforgivable crimes and irredeemable people out there.

Then you don't agree.

I wasn't aware crime was about forgiveness.
I thought in-so-far as societies implemented systems of justice, their purpose was restitution and rehabilitiation.

No one gains anything from a person—irrespective their prior actions—being murdered and we all lose a bit of our soul each time a state execution is allowed to take place.

I really expected better from Vietnam, whose "quarantine at gunpoint" public health policies I heartily endorse.

I gain more confidence that the world is now a better place.

Oh word? Did the horrific thing they did no longer happen?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

The way these people affect so many lives negatively with their fraud is much worse than a person committing murder.

Irrespective how is two bad things better than one bad thing? I would think fewer bad things would be net better.

The literal misery they cause to so many people for their own benefit without a fucking iota of shame and their sociopathic behavior is enough to consider eliminating them from society.

You speak of "sociopathic behavior" while advocating state murder. 🤨

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

Take the money, sure. Then they're no longer billionaires and there's no need to kill them.

Each one of those assaults is a potentially life-altering trauma induced in a child.

Don't tell me what being abused as a child does to someone, thanks.

Does killing the person who did it make the assault not have happened?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

Allow me some cognitive dissonance

Not if you use it to advocate state murder I won't.

killing them leads to the inevitability of innocent people dying.

Innocent people will always have the ability to die, no matter how many people your state murders.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

Well then. Murdering someone as ex-post "punishment" for past actions remains abhorrent, but holding a gun to her head until she gives the money back is cool and good.

There is a difference between threatening violence as a deterrent against currently engaged in harms a person has the ability to cease and claiming moral authority to end a person's life due to things they have no control over.

There's distinction between "Put down the box or we'll shoot you." and "Having touched the box in the past, you now need to die regardless."

Still don't fuck with "The death penalty" as a framework for the threat, however.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

Alright. I DON’T agree.

You should; death as a post-hoc punishment is abhorrent and serves no one.

@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

I’m not even going to dignify this response.

That's a response.

Have a nice day

Thank you. It'll indeed be much nicer without you advocating state murder in it. 🙂

Some people cannot be rehabilitated.

You can't know that. You only have evidence for people's inability to've been rehabilitated so far.

I’m just curious what you think the course of action should be at that point?

Not murder.

if they’re miserable, and the people around them are made miserable, and the people trying to help them are made miserable…what do you do?

...drugs?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

persons that will always endanger other people and that includes killing them.

You cannot know that, and if you have the ability to strap someone down and end their life, you have no need to do so since you clearly have complete control over their person.

I’m OK with the death penalty only in principle

You shouldn't be. States qua arbiters of justice should not intentionally kill people under their control.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

How many is too many?

A single state murder is too many. Full stop.

Add into that how you've just given child abusers incentive to murder their victims and scared children out of informing on a family member for which the death of whom they do not wish to be responsible.

But what kind of fucked up society can only stop anti-social behavior through murdering its perpetrators?

the comments you’ve ever made on Lemmy

What's Lemmy?

arguing over inconsequential things

I don't think people getting murdered by the state is "inconsequential", least of all for the murdered person.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

and because of how much of a dick you’re being, you’ve definitely killed the opportunity to have a proper discussion with people about it

Oh no, I'm being a dick about states murdering people.

Maybe if I put on a frilly dress and sipped tea with folks they wouldn't have such horrific opinions?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

“I WILL DECIDE WHAT IS RIGHT OR WRONG”

I don't decide. The state murdering people is wrong. I just have the moral wherewithal to recognize the fact.

Which isn't hard because it's objectively true.

Hope this helps.

I’m against the death penalty but

Shut the fuck up. If there's a "but" ever then no the fuck you are not.

They won’t repeat the horrific thing they did while dead

Did the original horrific thing not happen? Does murder ameliorate past suffering in any way?

Vengeance is not justice, it is sick.

@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

There’s very little that can be done to reform these people.

Nothing you have tried so far.

How the fuck are we supposed to get the message across when those people have their own militia protecting them and their interests?

Have you ever considered "Progaganda Of The Deed" to encompass modeling being better people than the opposition?

@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

it takes seconds, other way takes years,

And you end up with dirty sheets. No matter how fast it is it doesn't address your problem.

Don't call people "it" my dude.
Irrespective how monstrous a person acts they're still a human and you can't distance yourself and your capacity to engage in the same monsterousness they did by dehumanizing them.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

and being wealthy diminishes just about all of those reasons.scientifically, there are studies that prove it. the wealthy are less intelligent less logic less compassionate less connected to the world.

So take their money.

they dehumanize, in the terms that matter to me, themselves.

You dehumanize yourself when you dehumanize others.

I’m in favor of actually fixing the problem. that means a guillotine.

How did that work out for Robespierre?

money isn’t money though.

Pretty sure money is money, and you can take it.

in what ways?

It makes you the type of person who can dismiss the humanity of other humans as "other" and we know what kind of atrocities that leads to.

half as many people arguing half as much for the dignity and humanity of the unhoused and laboring classes

What about universal human dignity applying universally takes away the right of dignity from the unhoused?

Human dignity isn't a zero-sum game. That's billionaire thinking.

Take billionaires' assets, not their lives (post-fact).

@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

based on what?

Being Human

at what point(s) does it start applying?

First breath; fetuses aren't people

at what point(s) does it stop?

It doesn't.

what about a hypothetical uploaded mind?

Getting a bit off topic your advocacy of murdering people after their wealth has been seized

in an ideal world, maybe we should.

Why the hell advocate violence if not to effect ideals?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

being human
which is what?

A supernatural comedy drama on BBC3

why?

What are you, a toddler? You asked for a cutoff and I gave you one. If you didn't want an answer, don't ask.

okay so when I die where does that dignity go? my writings? my body, my soul?
because your version of this idea sounds anawful lot like a soul.

What's your point? I never mentioned "a soul" as it relates to human dignity but if even you seem to be using it as equivalent to or allegory for writings so what if it does sound like that?

Like you seem to be trying to sculpt my position to some preconceived notion you have of organized faith so you can then attack that when I have never mentioned religion.

I just said you shouldn't murder people once you've already seized "their" assets.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

see I don’t respect the BBC.

You shouldn't.

what makes that cutoff meaningful?

Fetuses don't have rights.

I’m also saying you can’t sieze all their assets. money isn’t just money, and its not the only thing that’s money.

What the heck are you talking about? Find the things which can be exchanged for goods and services and that those things away. Cart off shiny rocks. 0 out electronic ledgers

Billionaire handshakes are meaningless. If you've seized all the food and means of production what does it matter if gardeners try to play Parker Bros. with one another?

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

How the hell are you supposed to play the game and “be better” than the opposition, when the opposition is taking advantage of you?

You do that by not murdering them after you have taken power and over the means of production.

Having all the world’s fortune in the hands of about 10 people. We can’t stop this by playing nice and asking nicely.

Alright so you've seized all the money in the world and taken over all the land and machinery that enables production through the application of labor via militant witholding of the same. You and your comrades have all the guns.

...why at that point do you need to use those guns to murder people who are no longer holding murderous control over those common resources?

I refuse to acquiesce to or defend a system of belief that requires people die.

Once you win, you don't kill or you never had moral authority to employ violence in pursuit of winning in the first place.

Thinking on it some of the Star Wars films might tie, but I really think it all comes down to if Enter The Dragon got that CBHD release. 🤔

Still seems it might be a tie as I have found evidence the first 3 Star Wars films were released on Video2000, but I have not found any evidence they were released on UMD.

FfaerieOxide OP ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

found evidence the first 3 Star Wars films were released on Video2000

Anyone know if Enter The Dragon also got a VCC release? I was able to find Exit The Dragon, ENTER THE TIGER on Video2000/VCC, but as you all know that is an entirely different Bruceploitation flick staring Bruce Li.

It existing on VCC does imply Enter The Dragon may well have been released on the format as well, and we could close the book on StarWars.

FfaerieOxide OP ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

How do you even research this?

I take a guess and then see how many formats for that guess I can find. It helps to know alot of home video formats I can check against.
Tell you though it isn't easy because search engines have noticeably began to suck donkey ass of late. All the skills I've developed have turned worthless as searching no long works the way it did a scant few years ago.

I would wonder if there's a Bollywood film that meets the same criteria and could be a strong contender?

I suppose it's possible Deewaar or Muqaddar Ka Sikandar got a whole bunch of other releases (the second was popular in The Soviet Union) but other than that I don't think laserdisc was ever released in India and that's a whole format. Since some of these films released on near every format every one counts.

FfaerieOxide OP ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

Damn. I've found evidence A New Hope (along with Empire Strikes Back and Revenge Of The Jedi) were released on Video8, but I haven't yet been able to find evidence Enter The Dragon got a Video8 release.

Can anyone find evidence of Enter the Dragon being released on Video8?
The one source I have found doesn't list it.

I really don't want the answer to my question to be "Star Wars". ☹️

I notice first off you're conveniently ignoring how I have been referring to sex designations for the past several posts and instead exclusively focusing on my earlier statement about names.

Makes me doubt your faith, that.

I will broaden and ask why you think any imposition of a gender on a person who has not yet informed you what it is is laudable or appropriate, be that marker on a certificate or a gendered name?

Oh wait no, that's what you do.

FfaerieOxide ,
@FfaerieOxide@kbin.social avatar

state your fucking position.

I already did, and I don't feel you are arguing in good enough faith—having been willing to concede being trans "is sinful"—to address you in any deeper detail.

You jump on the name thing rather than seeing it as an outcrop of assigning sex and gender and then bitch about it in other threads using disingenuous descriptions that conflate the two but only address the later.
