Commanded love of all men indiscriminately is an obliteration of distinction between love and hate, and therefore is not love at all.
But this is not to say that the society which inflicts capital punishment commits murder.
I have also seen it stated that Capital punishment is murder in its worst form. I should like to know upon what principle of human society these assertions are based and justified.
And capital punishment, however ineffective it may be and through whatever ignorance it may be resorted to, is a strictly defensive act, - at least in theory.
Capitalism is at least tolerable, which cannot be said of Socialism or Communism.
