Should the death penalty be reintroduced into Australia?

The death penalty should be reintroduced as it allows for the safeguarding of society. my reasoning for this is simple, no one who has ever been executed has gone on to commit another crime. Examples like Adrian Ernest Bayley prove this point as despite an extensive previous history of criminal activities he was allowed out of prison where he then proceed to rape and kill a young women. Even with such a history he shall be eligible for parole within the next 30 years. Imprisonment does not wor...

Legalization of Illicit Drugs

Drug prohibition has been a huge disaster with terrible consequences. Economics of legalization and drain on budget (prohibition) 1. More than $51,000,000,000 is spent on the war on drugs annually. 2. Tax revenue that drug legalization would yield annually, if currently-illegal drugs were taxed at rates comparable to those on alcohol and tobacco: $46.7 billion 3.

Social Empiricism Is Aristocratically Elitist

Daktoria
zhangwn

Before starting, let me clarify that "aristocratic elitism" refers to social status which is endowed upon birth. This is in contrast to meritocratic elitism which refers to social status that is developed after birth. The nature of social empiricism understands that evidence should be used to model how people get along. We learn about facts from experience, and make decisions based on those experiences. The problem with empiricism is it ignores the innate inequality of people's access to...
