RE: Should violent criminals be castrated?
"Violent criminals destroy their
lives and the lives of others, is society not morally obliged to save
them from themselves via castration?"


Violent criminals start out with destroyed lives. That's why they're both violent and criminals. If you truly care about society and violence, you'll look for the reason why criminals exist in the first place.

Not to entertain your assertions too much but the conflation of castrated animal and castrated human behavior is patently absurd. Animals don't know they've been castrated and they don't know why. Humans do. When you castrate a man for committing crimes, you don't reduce is tendency toward violence, you increase it. Moreover, testosterone is a necessary hormone for both males and females. It isn't responsible for aggression, it can only exacerbate it.

What about castrating sexual offenders? Pedophiles and rapists don't need to be running around with their bollocks if they are going to commit crimes with them.

I am going to assume that with that statement you're comparing this punishment system with the punishment system in Iran ( or somewhere similar) . I can see the similarities and I see that this is a slippery slope. Where do we draw the line?

Not cutting people up is a good start.

Alright, no cutting up people. Although that said, we do need to change how we deal with criminals. Need to fix the problem, instead of putting them in prison for a few years only for them to repeat offend.

Zactly. So what to do? Do we wait around to get cancer and then try to fix it or do we avoid things that cause cancer in order to prevent it?
