And we have the right to disagree with her, kind of the nature of a discussion. Now stay on-topic, only post if you have something to add to the discussion.

You agree with imprisonment, correct? That is a form of punishment. If a traitor were made to pay a $200 fine, that would be punishment as well. Perhaps it is best to state what types of punishment you are against.

If the country was the United States of America, id give the traitor the death penalty.

If the country was :randomly chooses a country: North Korea i wouldnt know whether to shoot him or give him a medal.

Quite interesting thought. But lets simplify things by accepting the view that the topic refers to the way a country should treat ITS OWN traitors. Because of course North Korea's traitors ( or Saddam's Iraq traitors ) are seen as patriots or, as Reagan RIP put it, " Freedom Fighters " by us.
Let's just focus on how WE should trait OUR traitors. Let's not make it a global or universal issue ( my 2 cents ).

But Darkmb you did great reminding that we always have to think of how relative everything is.

My fault, and actually I don't know.

I think I mixed punishment with torture.

So ignore my before post. I will get back to this when I start thinking correctly.

The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court


...that's all I have to say about that.
