    My favorite are the wingnuts who will alternately valorize torture as well as insist it’s justified by the threats we face, an essentially utilitarian argument. Read my response to this approach from a typical wingnut at my blog.

    Either it’s a positive good or a necessary evil. It can’t be both. I tend to think that it’s an absolute evil, but that’s just because I’m a left-wing relativist douchebag that doesn’t know the meaning of moral values.Report

    You mean you’ll put down your brazen bull, and I’ll put down my butcher knife, and we’ll try and torture each other like civilized people?

    Actually, Krauthammer’s argument pretty much amounts to defending how we can torture like a civilized people.Report
