I was tortured during my army training in the Serbian army.

What do you think?

What do you think?

I think it's right to torture for the reasons that one needs to torture, and I'm assuming that because you chose the Con side, you will be in favor that torture is not right and will argue for that reason.

Is it right to torture?

In my expert opinion, I say it's right to torture.

Here are some reasons why torture would be right for these purposes:
1. to gather intel from an enemy side
2. if the guy who wants to be tortured is a masochist

3. the torturer is a sadist

4. capital punishment for a criminal so the criminal will not commit further crimes
5. to save another life/lives
6. the world is about to end and you need to take torturing off your bucket list
